Refund Policy

The following policies govern payments and refunds for Summer Study AbroadSummer Internship Abroad, and Summer International Service Learning programs.

Important Notice: If someone other than you [the student] will be paying for the Summer Study Abroad or Summer Internship Abroad program, be sure to discuss your commitment and this refund policy with the other party before signing agreements in Gateway Abroad.

  1. The deposit is not refundable under any circumstances after a student's application has been accepted. If the University is unable to accept an application, it will refund all payments.
  2. If I withdraw from the Program by notifying the University in writing on or before March 1, the University will refund all fees paid, except the deposit.
  3. If I withdraw from the Program for medical reasons before April 1, and provide evidence of medical necessity from a physician, the University will refund all fees paid, except $300. If I replace myself with another student acceptable to the University, the University will refund an additional $150.
  4. If I withdraw from the Program for nonmedical reasons after March 1, but before April 1, the University will refund all fees paid, except the deposit, but only if I am able to replace myself with another student acceptable to the University.
  5. If a Program is cancelled, or if in the sole judgment of the University, a Program has been so radically changed in itinerary or curriculum that it would be unfair to require students to participate and a student elects in writing to withdraw from the Program, the University will refund all fees paid. Under these circumstances, the University will have no additional responsibility or liability to the student or his parents or guardian.
  6. After April 1, no refunds of fees will be made for any reason.
