Tuition Refund Plan (“TRP”)

The enrollment contract is binding after execution.  Parents can purchase the Tuition Refund Plan to protect against an instance in which their son needs to withdraw from Phelps, and the family would face no refund of tuition.  The plan provides for the refund of a portion of the pro-rated unused tuition.  The non-refundable cost of tuition insurance is the equivalent of 6% of tuition.
