Furman University has partnered with GradGuard™ to offer tuition insurance from Allianz Global Assistance.
The tuition protection plan is like an extension of our refund policy. It can reimburse up to 100% of your nonrefundable school costs after a mid semester withdrawal for a covered illness, injury, psychological condition, and more—protecting your investment in higher education. Visit the GradGuard™ website for more details.
Insurance must be purchased prior to the first day of classes. Coverage extends through the end of that semester. Tuition insurance is completely optional. The agreement you enter into is with GradGuard, not with Furman University.
Furman assesses a comprehensive tuition fee for degree-seeking, undergraduate day students who are enrolled for up to 20 credits in the fall or spring semesters. Requested exemptions to the comprehensive fee policy should adhere to the catalog requirements.
Comprehensive Fee Policy and Refund Policy:

Furman does not provide a health insurance plan for its domestic students. International students are required to purchase a plan provided by EIIA. The Earle Student Health Center on campus operates like other physician offices/health practices. Students should bring their health insurance card with them when visiting the center. Students’ primary insurance provider will be billed. Please check with your family insurance provider to make sure that the student will be adequately covered while away at school. Your insurance provider may require an enrollment certification for your student.
Furman does provide all undergraduate day students with a Student Sickness Benefits Plan (at no additional cost) that will generally cover co-payments. Find out more about this coverage.
