refund information

Prior to Withdrawal Deadline
The $30 application fee is non-refundable. The $150 deposit is also non-refundable*, except in the case of a documented medical or family emergency. All other payments are refundable, less any funds already expended on your behalf, until the dates listed below.

Withdrawal Deadlines
  • Summer: March 1st
  • Fall and Academic Year: July 1st
  • Winterim: October 1st
  • Spring and Calendar Year: November 1st

After the Withdrawal Deadline
All withdrawals must be made in writing.  No refunds are available after the dates above.  If you withdraw after the deadline, you may still need to pay some or all of the program costs.

*If a student is cancelled from a program by the CIE prior to the withdrawal deadline due to academic ineligibility or conduct violations, the $150 deposit will be refunded.

Medical or Emergency Withdrawals
Prior to the withdrawal deadline, your application fee and deposits/program payments may be transferred to another program in a term up to two terms in the future, or refunded upon review by CIE staff.

After the withdrawal deadline, the CIE will need to review expenditures already made, and consult with partners abroad, to see what, if any funds can be refunded.  While we will do our best to minimize your financial loss, we cannot guarantee a full refund, and it is still possible that you will need to pay additional funds if the partner abroad has already committed them on behalf of the program.
