GradGuard Tuition Insurance

Protect your higher education investment with tuition insurance.

Elmira College has partnered with GradGuard™ to provide our families with a tuition insurance option, featuring special plans and rates not available to the general public.

This coverage expands the scope of our refund policy by ensuring reimbursement for tuition, room, board and other fees for covered illness/injury or mental health condition withdrawals at any time during the term. Students must opt-in and enroll in the insurance plan.  The deadline to apply is the day before the first day of classes each term.
