Program Withdrawal, Refunds, Charges

If you need to withdraw from your program, it is very important that you do so via OASIS and contact the PIC as quickly as possible. The following is the "Withdrawal" portion of the risks/releases form from the OASIS application:

I understand that I will be held accountable for the entire cost of the program once I have been accepted to participate by the Padnos International Center and/or host institution. I understand that submitting this application is agreement to enroll in the study abroad program for the semester/year for which I am applying. To withdraw from the program or defer enrollment, I must notify the Padnos International Center and the host institution or organization in writing. I understand that it is my responsibility to review all refund policies associated with my program. In the event that I notify the Padnos International Center in writing of my intent to cancel my participation or withdraw for reasons beyond my control, I understand that I will forfeit my application deposit and I will remain responsible for all unrecoverable program costs incurred on my behalf. I understand that I am responsible for any and all costs arising from voluntary or involuntary withdrawal or dismissal from the program prior to its completion, including withdrawal caused by illness or disciplinary action. Merit scholarships and financial aid may not be used to cover charges arising from a student's failure to participate in a study abroad program. Financial aid recipients who withdraw from their program after arrival in the host country are subject to the federal refund requirements.
