A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. is a private insurance program that supplements Macalester's refund policy. It insures the refund of one hundred percent of tuition, fees and applicable room and board charges if due to illness or accident a student takes a leave of absence or withdraws after the beginning of the fall or spring semester.
Participation in the Tuition Refund Plan (T.R.P.) offered by A.W.G. Dewar is entirely optional, and the College's refund program is applicable whether or not you enroll in the T.R.P. We encourage you to read the T.R.P. brochure carefully to consider the suitability of the T.R.P. for you.
For more information about the plan, please address them to A.W.G. Dewar at 617-774-1555.
