In the event of study abroad program withdrawal, cancellation, or interruption, the following policies apply:
*Exception: The Non-Refundable Study Abroad Application Fee is refundable only if a student's application is NOT accepted by their selected Study Abroad Program/host institution, or the program is cancelled (due to low enrollment or other variables).
Students who have been officially approved to study abroad by the Study Abroad Team who choose to withdraw from their program for any reason, must submit an official Withdrawal Form. Students must contact the Study Abroad Team and/or their program-specific Study Abroad Advisor to request a Withdrawal Form.
Until a student has submitted the Withdrawal Form to the Study Abroad Team, OIE reserves the right to assume participation and consequently the student will be responsible for all costs incurred by the university, and/or program provider, and/or host institution on their behalf.
Note: Students participating in a faculty-led program who choose to withdraw for any reason, must contact the Study Abroad Team to request a Withdrawal Form and complete the official withdrawal process. Notifying only the program Faculty Director(s) of request to withdraw is not recognized by OIE as a formal notice of withdrawal.
