Tuition Insurance

The University of South Carolina is proud to partner with GradGuard to offer students tuition insurance beginning with the Spring 2024 term! GradGuard’s Tuition Insurance Plan helps students and their families overcome the financial losses that may result from events which force students to withdraw from the term due to a covered medical reason.

What can GradGuard’s Tuition Insurance Plan do for you?

  • It can reimburse tuition, room, board, and more after a withdrawal due to a covered reason.
  • It can provide protection for injury, illness, COVID and mental health conditions.
  • It can help you avoid financial losses in the event of a covered withdrawal.
  • It can increase the possibility that you return to school in the event of the unforeseen.
  • It provides you access to an assistance hotline to help students and their families take care of emergencies and unexpected issues

Tuition insurance must be purchased before the end of the drop/add period of the full term and is offered as a voluntary benefit to our families, your participation is not required but highly recommended. The school is not compensated for this program.
