    Host: Can I get tuition insurance?

    Andrew Battaile: Some schools offer what they call tuition insurance. You might register your child at a school and then sign papers making you liable for the full tuition of that year and then may be a few weeks later, you might get into a different school and want your child to attend that school. There is something called tuition insurance, and if you fill these papers out, it ensures that if you pay a fee to have the insurance at the end of the day if you do take your child out and go to another school, you are not liable for the full tuition. So if that's a possibility if your child is looking at different schools, it is a good idea to look into tuition insurance and if that's an option.
