Tuition Refund Insurance

The school does not grant refunds for late entrance, absence, withdrawal or dismissal. The obligation of the parent to pay tuition and fees for the entire school year is unconditional. To assist parents in meeting this obligation, we offer the Dewar Tuition Refund Insurance, which is required under the Two Payment and Monthly Plans. It is optional under the One Payment Plan. The cost of this insurance is 1.8% of the 2019-20 annual tuition. Information on the Dewar Tuition Refund Insurance is available through the Admissions Office.
