CSU announces tuition insurance partnership

By Jan Joslin | May 12, 2021

Charleston Southern University students and families will have the option to protect their investment with the launch of a partnership with GradGuard™ and its Tuition Protection Plan™ beginning this fall.

The plan provides reimbursement for tuition if a student is unable to complete an academic term due to sudden illness, a flair up of a chronic illness, mental health conditions, or other covered conditions. A renter’s insurance policy that protects students’ belongings will also be available.

“As a student-centered university, we are excited to partner with GradGuard™ to help students and their families protect their educational investment,” said Jim Rhoton, associate vice president for enrollment management. “This partnership aligns perfectly with CSU’s E.P.I.C. values of extra-mile service and a passion for student success.”

When bills for fall semester begin rolling out, students and families will have the choice to purchase tuition insurance.
