Protect Yourself

Consider tuition protection insurance to supplement and strengthen the school’s refund policy.

Helping you get the most out of your Merrimack College experience is always our top priority. That’s why we’ve partnered with GradGuard to make the Tuition Protection Plan available to our families.

Tuition insurance protects the investment your family has made in your education in case you need to withdraw anytime throughout the semester because of illness, injury or emergency. Included in the Tuition Protection Plan is Student Life Assistance. This is a free, 24-hour hotline service that makes sure students and parents feel supported in emergency situations.

This coverage expands the scope of our refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, housing and other payments, up to the policy limits, if you withdraw for a covered medical reasons at any time during the semester. The deadline to apply is before the first day of classes each semester.
