Here at John Carroll, we understand that the unforeseeable can happen and you may need to withdraw from the university due to illness, injury, or personal situations. We understand that higher education is a major investment.  We want to provide your family with an option to allow for more peace of mind if the unexpected happens and protect your education investment. Therefore we have partnered with The GradGuard™ Tuition Protection Plan from Allianz Global Assistance to offer students and families the option to purchase tuition insurance.

Tuition Insurance can be purchased as a voluntary student benefit to complement the JCU Refund Policy. The tuition insurance can cover up to 100% of costs such as tuition, fees, room, and board. It provides insurance benefits for losses incurred if you are forced to withdraw part-way through the semester due to: 

  • Serious covered illness or injury
  • Covered mental health disorder 
  • Covered death of a tuition payer


Families can enroll in the tuition insurance plan up to the last day of the add/drop period of each term. The option to purchase this protection will be available when accessing your billing statement. Coverage periods start on the first day of classes and extend to the end of the final exams period. Tuition insurance can cover up to the cost of attendance based on the student’s education level (Undergraduate and Graduate).
