At USC Aiken, we know your college education is an important investment. For this reason, we believe it’s important to offer an easy, affordable way to protect the investment you and your family have made in higher education. That’s why USC Aiken has partnered with GradGuardTM to provide our students and their families with tuition insurance.
What It Covers
The Tuition Protection Plan* offered by GradGuard offers plans that expand the scope of the university’s refund policy and can provide reimbursement at any time during the covered term, for personal reasons such as:
- Covered serious illness or injury
- Covered chronic illness
- Covered mental health conditions
- Covered death of a tuition payer
*Please note: Tuition insurance must be purchased before the end of the drop/add period of the full term.
Tuition Insurance is Optional
Students and their families have the option to purchase tuition insurance. It is not required. The insurance agreement is between you and GradGuard. USC Aiken is not a party to the agreement and will not have access to your GradGuard account details.
