Tuition Insurance to Protect Your Investment in Higher Education

At Louisiana State University, we understand the importance of providing families with an affordable option to protect the investment made in higher education. Therefore, LSU has partnered with GradGuard to provide families with tuition insurance featuring special plans and rates not available to the general public. 

The timing and circumstances of a withdrawal at LSU determines the refund percentage for tuition and fees. GradGuard’s optional Tuition Protection Plan supplements our existing refund policy to provide additional protection if a student withdraws for a covered medical reason. Tuition insurance can reimburse up to 100% of your costs after an unexpected withdrawal for a covered illness, injury, mental health condition, COVID-19 and more. 

Keep in mind, the plan allows you to choose your coverage limit and reimbursement can include:

  • Tuition payments
  • Room and board
  • Other academic fees

In addition, to provide you and your family with even more peace of mind, the plan also includes Student Life Assistance, a 24-hour emergency hotline, that helps students stay safe on and off campus.

This coverage expands the scope of our refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, room, board and other fees for covered illness withdrawals at any time during the semester. The deadline to apply is the day before the first day of classes each semester.
