Campus Fall

All of us at Wake Forest, especially those of us who advise students and their families, are concerned about students who suffer serious illness and accidents and have to leave the University before a semester is completed. In many instances it means not only the loss of time invested in studies, but also the loss of the semester’s costs. Situations where families are forced to choose between major financial losses and their child’s health are particularly difficult. This is why we urge you to consider the low-cost tuition insurance plan Wake Forest offers through A.W.G. DEWAR, Inc., or to consider other options to protect your family from experiencing this possibility.

An unexpected withdrawal due to sickness or injury can mean significant financial consequences for families. Wake Forest offers an elective tuition insurance plan through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. (a program going on 15+ years) that will help minimize financial loss if a student suffers a serious illness or accident and must withdraw before the end of a semester.

This plan extends and enhances the University’s published refund policy. In cases of withdrawal due to accident, illness or mental health conditions as defined in the plan, the plan assures up to a 75% refund throughout the term.
