  • Withdrawal Policy

  • Passports/Visas
    • All students going abroad must have a passport that is valid for the duration of the program abroad and up to 6 months after the program end date. Students are responsible for determining entry and exit requirements for the location of their study abroad program. If you do not yet have a passport, have a passport that has expired or one that will expire while you are abroad, we strongly urge you to apply for or renew your passport now.  For many of the fall programs, the host university will require a copy of your passport before the end of the winter term.
    • Visas: Students accepted to study in Belgium, China, France (Rennes), Greece, Japan, Russia, Spain or Vietnam will need to obtain a student visa here in the US before the departure date for the program abroad. If you are accepted and will be going to one of these countries, we will be providing information about the compliance process to secure a visa so that you can legally enter and remain in the host country during your studies.
