Withdrawal Policy


If you must withdraw from your selected study abroad program after you have been accepted, your withdrawal will be governed by the Withdrawal Instructions and Policies, or by the Withdrawal Policy for Short-Term, Faculty Led Programs, depending on which type of program you applied to.

Withdrawal Instructions and Policies
  • If you decide not to participate in a study abroad program, you must withdraw by notifying OSA via email by the specified withdrawal deadline.  The withdrawal deadline is referenced in your acceptance letter.
  • Students withdrawing after this deadline will be responsible for paying the application fee, and will also be responsible for any funds the program may have paid on their behalf (e.g. for preparations such as housing, textbooks, etc.) Deposits and related charges will appear on your student account, and are due upon receipt.
  • Students who have applied to programs with our program providers, such Arcadia University, CEA, SAI, etc. must withdraw both with OSA and with the program provider. 
Short-Term, Faculty-Led Program Withdrawal Policy

  • Acknowledge that you will be required to forfeit a $500 deposit fee if you withdraw from the program after the specified withdrawal deadline.
  • Students withdrawing after this deadline will be responsible for paying the program deposit of $500, and will also be responsible for any costs or penalties (e.g. airline cancellation fees)  incurred on their behalf by Belmont or the affiliate or host university, which may include up to the total program cost (e.g. housing, excursions, airfare etc.)  Charges will appear on your student account, and are due upon receipt.
