Elective insurance is available which provides full coverage for tuition and mandatory fees (excluding health insurance) for students who suffer serious illnesses or accidents which makes it necessary for them to leave the university before the semester is completed. Students must accept or decline the insurance at the time they register. If they accept the insurance, a charge equal to .41 of 1% of their tuition and mandatory fees will be added to their student account.
The Tuition Refund Plan is offered through a private insurance carrier: Dewars, Inc. Further information and applications brochures are available from the Cashier’s Office and Registration and Records.
The Price School of Public Policy strongly recommends students take advantage of this insurance. USC Price will not issue tuition refunds for students who need to withdraw because of serious illness or accidents.
