» Study Abroad Withdrawal Refund Policies

Chapman University students will pay Chapman tuition, room, and (sometimes) board for all semester abroad and academic year abroad programs. However, Chapman students will be held to their program provider or host institution refund policies in the event that they select to withdraw or are withdrawn by staff due to eligibility reasons. Please see below for the most updated refund policies from the study abroad and exchange programs. The $500 Study Abroad Fee is NEVER refundable once it has been charged to a student.

AIFS Withdrawal Refund Policy

AIFS College Division Refund Policy
The right to refunds is limited. All withdrawals must be in writing either by mail to AIFS Study Abroad, Summer Programs, American Institute For Foreign Study, 1 High Ridge Park, Stamford, CT 06905 or by fax to (203) 399-5597.

Refunds prior to the start of the program
Using the postmark or fax date of a student’s withdrawal letter as the official withdrawal date, the following applies:

If a student withdraws

 

he/she receives

After final payment deadline and more than 60 days before departure

 

All payments minus the non-refundable deposit and application fee of $395 and $1,000

After final payment deadline and 30 to 60 days before departure

 

All payments, minus the non-refundable deposit and application fee of $395 and 50% of the program fee

After final payment deadline and less than 30 days before departure

 

No refund

In addition :

  • If AIFS cancels a program, participants will be notified within 7 days and a full refund or, at the participant’s option, credit toward another program will be made within 14 days of cancellation. AIFS will not cancel a program less than 10 days before scheduled departure unless circumstances exist which make it impossible for it to continue.
  • In the unlikely event that the U.S. State Department issues a travel warning before the program starts which advises U.S. citizens not to travel to the program site, AIFS will refund all fees paid minus the non-refundable deposit and application fee of $395 and $1,000.
  • If a program undergoes major changes and participants elect in writing to withdraw from the program, a full refund of all payments except the non-refundable deposit and application fee of $395 will be processed within 14 days of the cancellation. Major changes mean significant changes in program dates or destination cities. Minor alterations including reversed itineraries will not result in refunds.

Refunds once a program has started

Once the program has started, students who withdraw will receive no refund unless the U.S. State Department issues a travel warning advising U.S. citizens to leave the program site. In the unlikely event of this happening, AIFS would suspend the program and students would receive a pro-rata rebate of fees paid to AIFS for the portion of the program not completed less the non-refundable deposit and application fee of $395. Students dismissed for disciplinary reasons receive no refunds of any kind and forfeit all academic credit.

There are no refunds for meals, accommodation, cultural activities/ excursions, tuition or transportation missed by students for any other reasons other than those listed above once the program has started.

CEA Withdrawal Refund Policy

Withdrawal Dates

A Withdrawal Date is the last day a student can withdraw from a program and not be held responsible for full payment or be eligible for a refund (See Refund Policies section for more information). All Final Payment due dates will be set no later than the Withdrawal Date. All students must be paid-in-full and/or have submitted the required Financial Aid forms by the Withdrawal Date. Any student wishing to withdraw from their program must express their intent to withdraw in writing prior to the Withdrawal Date. All withdrawal notifications must be received via fax, mail or e-mail. Verbal notification will not be accepted. Once a withdrawal notification has been received, CEA will acknowledge receipt of notification by sending a Withdrawal Confirmation e-mail to the student. Any student that has not submitted payment and/or valid Financial Aid Forms by their Program Withdrawal Date may be withdrawn from their program for non-payment (Please See Outstanding Balances section for more information). Refer to the Program Info tab on your MyCEA Account for your program’s specific Withdrawal Date.

If the withdrawal date falls on a weekend, the following business day will be honored.

Refund Policies

When students are enrolled in a CEA study abroad program, they are automatically eligible for the Standard CEA Refund Policy at no extra cost above the study abroad application and program price. However, CEA recommends they enroll in the CEASecureplan, which allows students to receive a refund for any one of the covered reasons described below up until one calendar week before their program start date. If they choose not to enroll in CEASecure™, all refund requests must be sent to CEA’s Arizona Headquarters in writing on or before the program’s final withdrawal date to be eligible for a refund. All withdrawal requests must be sent via fax, mail or email. No verbal requests are accepted. We will acknowledge receipt of student requests by a Withdrawal Confirmation email. All refund decisions will be made by CEA staff. Students who withdraw in writing on, or prior to, their program Withdrawal Date are not responsible for final payment and may be entitled to a refund of payments already made to CEA, minus the application fee and program confirmation.

No refunds will be given to students who withdraw from their program after the Withdrawal Date or to students who are withdrawn by CEA for non-payment. Likewise, students who withdraw after the program Withdrawal Date are still 100% responsible for final payment, regardless of participation. Any student that leaves a CEA program early after arriving on site will not be granted a refund.

Students using Financial Aid or loans are responsible for their entire program cost if their Financial Aid or loans are rescinded after their program Withdrawal Date or if they choose to withdraw after their program Withdrawal Date (Please see the Financial Aid and Outstanding Balances sections).

Special Situations:

Academic Year Programs: Academic Year students who wish to withdraw at the end of the fall semester/trimester are still subject to CEA's academic year pricing structure (see Program Price/Final Payment section). Academic Year students should be aware of the withdrawal date for the winter and/or spring portion of their selected program. Notification in writing must be sent to the CEA Headquarters in Arizona, in addition to your CEA resident director (See Change of Program section). Students who have paid their AY program in full will receive a refund of the remaining 40% of the program price (spring portion) providing that their withdrawal notification is received prior to the spring semester withdrawal date. Any discount given will be forfeited.

Multiple Program Students: Multiple program students who have confirmed their participation on multiple programs and wish to withdraw from one or more sessions are subject to CEA's withdrawal and refund policies for the cost of their remaining programs. Multiple program students should be aware of the withdrawal date for the remaining programs. Written notification must be sent to the CEA Headquarters in Arizona in addition to your CEA Program/Campus Director (See Change of Program section). Any discount given is forfeited for the remaining sessions.

The SACI application fee is non-refundable and is therefore not shown on the refund schedule. Students attending multiple academic terms are subject to this policy for all academic terms of study. In addition, each student will be held liable for all costs associated with the collection of his or her past-due account, including, but not restricted to, legal fees and court costs. No refunds will be made to any student owing a balance to SACI for any term. All funds such as the General Program Deposit will first be applied to balances owed SACI, then a refund of any remaining monies will be issued to the student from the Director of Admissions. In addition, students who receive Title IV Federal Aid through SACI are subject to specific loan refund policies as directed by the federal government. Please read the paragraph Federal Aid Recipients below for further information.

Grade, Transcript, and Certificate/Diploma Holds

SACI will not issue or release grades, transcripts, certificates or diplomas, or provide other documentation of attendance or completion for any student whose account shows a balance due for current and/or previous terms.

Federal Aid Recipients (SACI MFA, MA, & Post Baccalaureate Students only)

Students receiving Title IV federal funds, such as Stafford and/or PLUS loans, are subject to Federal Return of Title IV Funds policy regarding aid earned in the event of cancellation or withdrawal. Students canceling prior to the first day of classes are not eligible for any aid and SACI will cancel all pending loan disbursements in this case. Students withdrawing on or after the first day of classes, but prior to 60% completion, are eligible for a pro-rated amount of aid earned based on the amount of the term completed at the point of withdrawal. SACI will adhere to the federal regulations which require that any aid not earned be returned in the following order: first to Unsubsidized Stafford loan, second to Subsidized Stafford loan, third to the Grad Plus loan, then to other scholarship or loan sources, and finally to the student. Students who withdraw after completing 60% of the term are eligible to retain 100% of the Title IV funds for that term. The same policy and procedure regarding Title IV funds applies to any and all additional student loans that require authorization by the Financial Aid Coordinator. If the return of loan funds by SACI as required by law creates a balance due on the student’s account, the student will be immediately responsible for payment of that balance.

All forms in your acceptance packet, are due by the date of your first payment, indicated on your Confirmation of Enrollment form. If you are not able to submit these forms by the deadline, please call and notify SACI's New York office when you will be able to send them in.

*The General Program Deposit serves as a deposit to secure a place in the program of your choice. It is refundable only after program participation, if no housing fees, library charges, or other expenses are incurred.

This policy applies to all terms and programs, including the Non-Credit Summer Studies Program.

Payment in full is due by the FULL PAYMENT DATES listed below:

Fall term……………………………………………………August 1

Spring term………………………………………………December 1

Late Spring term………………………………………April 15

Summer term……………………………………………May 30

Course registration priority is given to students who pay their balance in full by the Full Payment Dates. Placement in SACI housing is guaranteed to students who have submitted SACI housing forms and paid in full by the Full Payment Dates.

Late Payments: A late fee of $250 will be imposed for final payments not received by the full payment dates. In addition, course registration will be canceled and housing is no longer guaranteed. If student plans to use financial aid, a completed promissory note, and balance of fees must be received by above full payment dates or late fee of $250 will be assessed. Programs may fill after a student is accepted but before the confirmation deposit is paid. Students are urged to apply and deposit early.

Late Applications: Late applications may be considered if space is available. Applicants applying after the full payment date will pay tuition and fees as directed by the SACI Admissions Office.

Refund Policy for Tuition and Fees:

Cancellation prior to Full Payment Date........................... Full refund excluding deposit

After the Full Payment Date, before first day of term...... 75% refund of program fees, excluding deposit

On or after the first day of term........................................ No refund (except deposit, if apartment in good condition, and there are no outstanding balances)

Deferral Policy for applicants to Late Spring, Summer, Academic Semester and Academic Year programs: Admitted students may defer participation to a future term, at maximum a year in the future. A paid general program deposit can be applied to a future term within this timeframe if the deferral is arranged prior to the final payment deadline. Deferring students may need to submit updated transcripts and an updated term specific Study Abroad Advisor form in order for deferred admission to be confirmed.

Please retain a copy of this policy for your records.

Check the box on the Confirmation of Enrollment form acknowledging you have read, understood, and agree to all terms stated on this form.

All cancellations or transfer requests must be mailed, emailed, or faxed by the participant on or before the posted cancellation deadline for the voyage. The Institute for Shipboard Education’s payment and cancellation policy specifies the refund structure for those students that must cancel their plans to sail. Below, you will find the refund structure:

Prior to fall and spring departures, refund of all payments, with the exception of the application fee, will be made for written cancellations or transfers received no later than the 90-day payment due date before the scheduled sailing date. Cancellations received after the 90-day payment due date before the scheduled sailing date will automatically result in forfeiture of the $1000 deposit made at the time of confirmation of acceptance in the Program. The following fees will also apply

  • Cancellation up to and including 90 days prior to the voyage – full refund to participant
  • If cancelled 89-60 days prior to voyage – 25% of program fee*
  • If cancelled 59-45 days prior to voyage – 50% of program fee*
  • If cancelled 44-31 days prior to voyage – 75% of program fee*
  • If cancelled 30 days prior to the voyage and after voyage departure – 100% of program fee*

After departure no refund will be made to a Participant who voluntarily withdraws from the program or who must withdraw from the program due to any violation of the Standards of Conduct. No refund of any kind will be made if the Participant must interrupt the semester due to a medical or psychological illness.

If a participant’s departure or dismissal from the program requires a return or reduction of applicable federal or institutional aid or loans, the student is responsible for the program fees that were covered by these funds.

*Students may opt to transfer to another voyage, however all funds will become 100% non-refundable.

If it becomes necessary for the student to withdraw from the University, the student is expected to complete an official Leave of Absence/Withdrawal Form.

Financial liability will be based upon the date that the form is received by the Madrid Registrar.

Before making a decision to withdraw or take a leave, students should be aware of the financial implications. In some cases, the student could be ineligible for financial aid that was scheduled to be received. Charges that were to be covered by financial aid would become the student's responsibility.

Late Withdrawal Fee: If the student chooses to withdraw 30 days or less before the start of courses, a $600 Late Withdraw Fee will be applied to the account.

Tuition

  • Withdrawal prior to or on the first day of class: 100% of tuition minus confirmation fee and cancellation fee.

  • Withdrawal after the first day of class, but no later than five days after the beginning of classes: 50% of tuition minus confirmation fee and cancellation fee.

  • Thereafter, with respect to Students enrolled for the entire academic year and who withdraw during the second or summer term: no refund.

  • Tuition assistance, grants, and scholarships provided by the Program and TAU are contingent on successful  completion of the course of studies.  Early withdrawal cancels the aforementioned funding and makes the Student  liable for the full tuition as covered in clauses above.

  • Students who have received federal loan disbursements before they withdraw will not receive any refunds and must contact the Department of Education if they want to return any of the funds.

 

Dormitories

  • Students will be charged for dormitory accommodations in full, unless they indicate they will be living off campus prior to their payment deadline as set by the Office of Academic Affairs.

  • Students leaving the dormitories after the beginning of the program will be charged the entire fee for the duration of the program.

  • TAU is not able to give any refunds for students who leave the dorms early.

 

Conditional Fees

  • Bank Fee – Bounced checks incur a $60 fee and cancellation of any payment plan.

  • Late payment of fees –  This incurs a USD100 fee for every 30 days passed the payment deadline and may lead to the cancellation of the Student's payment plan. Students in debt will be refrained from receiving TAU services (e.g registration for courses, grades, library access, and/or receiving TAU academic documents).

  • Cancellation Fee – A $500 fee is incurred if a student withdraws after the Office of Academic Affairs receives the Confirmation Form or if a withdrawal occurs after the first day of classes, whichever one comes first.

  • Collection Fees – Tel Aviv University may utilize the services of an attorney and/or collection agent to collect any amount past due, and you will be charged an additional amount equal to the cost of collection (approximately 33% of your outstanding balance) as well as any other fees incurred by Tel Aviv University.

 

Graduation/ Certification, Transcripts

TAU Student Remaining Fees

All debts, including tuition fees, accommodation debts, library debts, etc must be cleared before a student is permitted to register for his/her next year of study.

 

Examination

Record of Studies

Students in debt will not be able to graduate or receive a certificate, transcript or official letter to verify their academic standing whilst an outstanding debt exist.

Current and former students due to receive a certificate or who have requested a transcript or official letter to verify their academic standing, must make full settlement of fees or other charges due to the University (and funds must have cleared) before a certificate transcript or official letter can be issued.

+ - Temple University

Temple University Withdrawal Refund Policy

In order to determine a student's eligibility for refunds of any fees, Education Abroad must first receive written notice of withdrawal from the student either by a signed letter or email. Education Abroad cannot accept notice of withdrawal by any other means, including phone calls or letters from parents. The only exception to this would be if a student were incapacitated. In this case the student's parents or guardians should contact Education Abroad.

Program and Housing Deposits: The $200 program deposit and $200 housing deposit are non-refundable should a student withdraw from the program.

Housing Fees: Please note that Temple makes a commitment to housing partners abroad on behalf of students immediately after the due date of students' housing forms and deposits. If a student withdraws from the program or from Temple-arranged housing after the due date and before the start of the program, Temple will attempt to obtain a refund of the housing costs, but a refund may not be possible; students may be liable for the full costs of housing and will be billed accordingly. By the time students arrive on-site, Temple has made irrevocable commitments on their behalf. Students withdrawing from the program or leaving their Temple-arranged housing at or after the start of the program will receive no refund. If a student is responsible for damages or missing items, Temple University will bill the student for the outstanding amount.

Student Health Insurance: Students on Temple study abroad programs must enroll in a health insurance policy issued by HTH insurance and will be billed by Temple accordingly. The HTH insurance fee is refundable up to the start of the program. If a student withdraws after the program begins, the insurance fee is prorated based on the date of withdraw.

Other Program Fees (where applicable): Once charges are posted to student accounts and initial bills are generated, Temple makes commitments on behalf of students for various activities and services covered by program fees (if any) such as orientation events, meals and excursions, if they are offered as part of the program (please refer to the program information on the Education Abroad website for details of any other program fees). If a student withdraws from the program before initial bills are issued (see Billing Procedures and Policies for approximate initial billing dates), other program fees (if any) are refundable. After bills are issued, Temple will attempt to obtain a refund, but students need to be aware that a refund of program fees after the initial billing date may not be possible.

Tuition: With some exceptions (see * below) students may receive a full refund of tuition up to the end of the second week of classes provided the proper drop/add form and formal notice of withdrawal are completed and submitted in time. After this, refunds are not possible, though there is provision for petitioning for a refund of tuition after the end of the second week of classes if there are extenuating circumstances. For Temple's refund policy concerning tuition, please check the following website: http://www.temple.edu/bulletin/Enrolling/financial_information/tuition_fees/fininfo_tuition_fees.shtm

* Some of Temple’s programs involve partnerships with schools abroad. This information can be found on our website. For these programs Temple makes financial commitments on behalf of students to the partner institution; the amount of any tuition refund will depend upon what, if any, refund can be secured from the partner. If a student withdraws from the program before initial bills are generated, full tuition is refundable. If a student withdraws after bills are issued, Temple will attempt to obtain a refund, but a refund of tuition after the initial billing date is subject to the policies of our partners abroad.

Temple reserves the right to amend prices to reflect changes in economic conditions.

       100 percent tuition refund for course drop/withdrawal through the second calendar week of classes
