GradGuard Tuition Insurance Plan

The University of California, Berkeley is proud to partner with GradGuard to offer students the Tuition Insurance Plan. This optional benefit can protect your investment in higher education in the event of an unforeseen, covered accident, illness, injury, or other covered reason resulting in a withdrawal from school.

Benefits of the GradGuard Tuition Insurance Plan

Benefits of the GradGuard Tuition Insurance Plan include:

  • Covered serious injury or illness such as mononucleosis, COVID-19, or a severe head injury
  • Chronic illnesses such as an auto-immune disorder or diabetes

The Tuition Insurance Plan complements our refund policy and can provide reimbursement for eligible tuition payments, room and board, and other nonrefundable expenses if you withdraw for a covered illness or injury at any time during the plan period.
