What is tuition insurance?

Some students choose to take out optional tuition insurance coverage in case they need to withdraw for medical reasons. MIT offers tuition insurance through GradGuard, a third-party vendor that works with the Institute. Please note: The deadline to enroll is the day before classes begin each semester.

This is absolutely optional, but some of our students do take advantage of the protection.
