Tuition Insurance

We believe it’s important to offer an easy, affordable way to protect the investment your family has made in higher education. For that reason, Vanderbilt University has teamed up with GradGuard to provide our students and families with tuition insurance featuring special plans and rates not available to the general public.

GradGuard’s Tuition Protection Insurance Plan helps overcome the financial losses that may result from events which force students to withdraw from the semester due to a covered medical reason. This coverage supplements our refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, room and board and other fees for covered withdrawals at any time during the semester. Plans also include Student Life Assistance: a 24-hour emergency hotline that offers students and parents even greater peace of mind.

Plans must be purchased prior to the start of classes each term. Learn more at or call 877-794-6603.
