Withdrawal Policy

Withdrawal requests must be submitted in writing to the Office of Study Abroad. (In addition, students will be required to submit a Study Abroad Withdrawal Form on the Via TRM website.) Withdrawals are final and cannot be reversed. Participants who cancel or withdraw from a University of Chicago Study Abroad program for any reason will not be reimbursed for any expenses, including the nonrefundable administrative fee.

From the time of admission acceptance, Study Abroad begins making program arrangements on behalf of participants, including student housing, excursions, local language instruction, and many other preparations. Late withdrawals will be assessed a portion of the Study Abroad Program Fee according to the schedule below. Please note that these fees generally represent only a portion of costs already incurred on a student’s behalf.
