At The University of Alabama, we realize that your student’s college education is an important investment.  Some families choose to purchase tuition insurance through a program known as “GradGuard” which is owned and administered by Next Generation Insurance Group, LLC.  UA does not promote nor do we endorse this program, but we do make it available here for your convenience.

The Tuition Protection Plan can reimburse your tuition payments, housing and meal fees, and other nonrefundable expenses if a student withdraws for reasons like:

  • Serious covered illness or injury
  • Covered psychological/mental health condition
  • Covered death of tuition payer

You can get an online quote from GradGuard or call 1-866-724-4384. Tuition insurance is completely optional. The insurance agreement is between you and GradGuard. The University of Alabama is not a party to the agreement. Insurance must be purchased prior to the first day of class.
