Amherst College Refund Policy

In case of withdrawal before the opening day of a semester, all charges ex­cept the Advanced Tuition Deposit will be cancelled.

Optional, independent tuition insurance covering medical withdrawals is offered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. If you do not wish to participate in the program you must complete the online waiver by September 4, 2017 full year and by January 22, 2018 for the spring semester.  Subscribers are assured a refund of tuition within the terms of the plan for medical withdrawals. All medical withdrawals under the program are insured at 80% of the applicable tuition portion of the comprehensive fee previously paid to Amherst. More detailed information is available at http://tuitionprotection.com/Amherst. This is a private program that is not provided, or administered, by the College.
