Tuition insurance available to CSU students and families

By Jenna Johnson | July 29, 2022

Charleston Southern University partners with GradGuard to offer students and their families peace of mind when the unexpected happens. During the pandemic, students worldwide were faced with financial risks—and universities like CSU sought to offer insurance and assurance for those worried about investing in their education and future during a turbulent time in human history. Tuition insurance protects that investment.

GradGuard provides reimbursement when a student is unable to complete a semester due to unforeseen circumstances such as an accident, injury, illness, or other covered reason. Eligible covered expenses include tuition, room and board, and other fees.

As an added benefit, GradGuard provides 24-hour assistance to students and parents in emergency situations that includes travel arrangements for the student or family members. 

The cost of insurance is about 1.8% of the student’s tuition. New and existing students are eligible for insurance until the drop/add date each semester and can sign up any term. Beginning Aug. 1, 2022, the GradGuard offer will be available on CashNet when logging in to make a payment.
