Tuition Protection Insurance

Youngstown State University has partnered with GradGuard™ to offer the Tuition Protection Plan. It’s important that students have access to affordable protection for their major investment made in higher education.

The Tuition Protection Plan can help protect your investment if you have to withdraw unexpectedly for a covered illness, injury, or mental health reason. The plan covers tuition, room and board (on and off campus), books and other academic expenses. This plan complements and enhances our tuition refund policy so you can enjoy more peace of mind. Students and/or parents can purchase tuition insurance up to and including the 7th day of the term. The cost for tuition insurance is minimal for the security it provides. For example: $6,000 worth of tuition insurance coverage for a term is only $66.00.
