Sallie Mae is proud to announce University Business Magazine selected Sallie
Mae’s tuition refund insurance and college renters insurance as 2012 Readers’
Choice Top Products. Winners were selected by the editors of University
Business from nominations submitted by the readership of the magazine and were
based on both the quantity of nominations and the quality of reader

“We are pleased to announce the first-ever University Business Top Products
list and recognize Sallie Mae for two important products to help schools
protect revenues and help students protect their investment in education,”
said University Business Editor-in-Chief Tim Goral. “The nominations came from
a variety of university administrators who have shared their experiences with
these products and how they have improved the way their school operates.”

Sallie Mae Insurance Services is a leader in providing insurance and benefit
programs that help colleges protect their revenue while safeguarding the
investment students and families make in their education. Tuition refund
insurance reimburses tuition and other related expenses if a student is forced
to withdraw from college for covered medical reasons including disability,
physical or mental illness. It also offers revenue stability and
differentiates schools by providing families protection of their investment.

Also recognized as a Readers’ Choice Top Product, Sallie Mae’s college renters
insurance provides peace of mind to students who live in dorms or apartments.
In addition to protecting students against losses to their personal property
in the event of fire, theft, vandalism, or other covered causes, Sallie Mae’s
college renters insurance provides personal liability protection for
unintended property damage or injury to others.

“In partnership with higher education institutions, we’re committed to helping
families safeguard their investment,” said Charlie Rocha, senior vice
president, Sallie Mae. “Sallie Mae’s suite of insurance products provides
peace of mind for families and schools by delivering certainty that their
investment is protected.”

University Business Readers’ Choice Top Products award recognizes leaders in
the higher education industry and provides university leaders and
administrators with the unique opportunity to learn what products their
colleagues around the country are using, and how these products contribute to
the success of their schools.
