Tuition Refund Insurance

It is important that you review and understand Whittier Law School’s Withdrawals Policy. We understand that in the event of a medical withdrawal, the non-refunded portion of tuition can be a financial hardship to many students. Therefore, we are pleased to make Tuition Refund Insurance available to help protect your education investment. Tuition Refund Insurance is an optional program that refunds your tuition, fees, and room/board charges, up to the policy limits, if you are unable to complete the semester due to a medical reason such as illness, accident, or mental health issue. This program complements and enhances our school’s refund policy and we believe students will benefit from this added protection.
