Withdrawal and Refund Policies

Pod

Students may withdraw from the program at any time before the program begins.  To withdraw from a program, students must submit a request in writing to the Faculty-Led Study Program Coordinator stating their decision to withdraw from their program. Students are responsible for any expenses incurred on their behalf until the date that the withdrawal form has been received.

After a withdrawal request is received, students will be eligible to receive a refund based on the following withdrawal schedule:

Time Line of Student Withdrawal Refund
90 – 60 days prior to start date Forfeit 50% of amount paid. Student is responsible for the total amount that has already been spent on the student’s behalf such as admission fees, transportation, meals, accommodations, tours, etc.
59 – 30 calendar days prior to start date Forfeit 75% of amount paid.  Student is responsible for the total amount that has already been spent on the student’s behalf such as admission fees, transportation, meals, accommodations, tours, etc.  
Less than 29 days prior to start date No refund

Funds spent on a student’s behalf will be retained to ensure that the costs to the other students in the program do not increase as a result of a smaller group size.

If a student is dismissed from a program at any time due to behavioral, academic, legal, or other related issues, no refunds will be given. In this case, any expenditures relating to the students dismissal and early return are the responsibility of the student.

Please note: If a program is cancelled due to under-enrollment, 100% of the students’ payments will be refunded.
