NOLS offers a Tuition Protection Plan, provided by AON Affinity, for citizens of the U.S. and Canada who meet certain legal residence requirements at a cost of six percent of the total tuition. The plan helps to protect against tuition loss should you be unable to participate or complete your WEMT, MED, or WME course due to an injury or illness to yourself or your immediate family. Additionally, this plan may help to pay for evacuation costs from the course location. The Tuition Protection Plan payment is non-refundable and not transferable.
NOLS strongly recommends the Tuition Protection Plan to safeguard your investment in tuition.
AmeriCorps Awards are not reimbursable under this plan nor through NOLS.
