  • Tuition Insurance (Optional)

    What happens when your education is disrupted by an unexpected injury or illness?  Depending on the timing of the withdrawal, you may not be eligible to receive a refund of all your tuition and fees.

    The Tuition Insurance Protection Plan helps students and their families overcome the financial losses that may result from events which force students to withdraw from the semester due to a covered medical reason.  Helping families get the most out of your Lesley University experience is always our top priority.  That's why we've partnered with GradGuard to make the Tuition Insurance Protection Plan available to our families.

    This coverage strengthens and broadens the scope of our existing refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, housing, and other payments if a student withdraws for any covered medical reason at any time during the semester.

    Please remember the deadline to enroll is the day before classes begin each semester.

    Learn more at GradGuard.com/Tuition/Lesley or call 1.866.724.4384.
