Tuition Refund Insurance Plan for Medical and Mental Health Withdrawals

Tuition is computed on the assumption that a student will remain throughout the academic year. Since a place in class has been reserved, tuition will only be refunded in accordance with the Withdrawal/Dismissal Refund Policy.

A student who suffers a serious illness or accident and needs to withdraw from New York Institute of Technology prior to the completion of the term may encounter certain problems. In many instances, withdrawal from classes not only means the loss of time invested in studies, but also significant financial loss.

New York Tech’s Tuition Refund Plan,** offered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc., is an elective insurance plan that provides coverage for tuition and mandatory fees as well as university housing (room and board) costs if a medical or mental health withdrawal occurs. This plan will help to minimize a student’s financial portion of this loss.

While the New York Tech provides partial refunds for withdrawals, these refunds are limited and effective only when the student withdraws early in a term. The Tuition Refund Plan significantly extends and enhances the published withdrawal policy. If a student withdraws because of injury/sickness or mental health reasons, the Tuition Refund Plan returns 100 percent or 75 percent of the insured term tuition/fees and university housing costs and meal plans where applicable less any refund or credit due you from the college, when plan conditions are followed (this coverage does not apply if the student drops classes without completely withdrawing).

Students are automatically enrolled in this insurance when they register for classes for fall, spring, or summer terms. Students who are enrolled at New York Tech and wish to opt out of this plan must log in to the Student Service HUB and choose Resources, where you will find AWG Dewar's Tuition Waiver link. Complete the required fields on the waiver form and submit. The Office of the Bursar will be sent a notification to process your request.

** The Tuition Refund Plan is a voluntary form of insurance, and includes an administrative fee retained by New York Institute of Technology. Insurance is only available for the New York campuses.
