An optional insurance program is available to help refund your tuition, fees, and room/board charges, up to the annual policy limits, if you are unable to complete the semester due to a covered medical reason. This insurance program complements and enhances our school’s refund policy and we believe families will benefit from this added protection. Visit GradGuard for additional information.

*The notice of withdrawal must be in writing; refunds will be granted according to the date of receipt of the notice by the Registrars Office, not by the date on the letter of withdrawal. Therefore, it is advisable to fax, e-mail or file withdrawals in person at the Registrar’s Office, and not rely upon mail service.

Refunds for recipients of Title IV federal assistance, will receive refunds according to the Title IV policy published in the Merrimack College catalog. 

In addition to these expenses, families should plan on some indirect costs that students may incur that will not be seen on the students bill. Below are a few annual estimates:

Estimates of additional expenses
Books                                              $1,000
Transportation               $1,000
Personal Expenses $450




Financial aid to help meet these costs is available from federal, state and Merrimack sources.
