After you have been accepted to a study abroad program and paid the required deposit, you are considered an enrolled participant in that program. By making such payment you are expressing your intention to participate in the program, you are acknowledging that the deposit is non-refundable, and you are recognizing that you will be held responsible for some or all of the full program fee, even if ultimately you do not participate in the program, depending on when you formally withdraw from the program.
If you are considering withdrawing from a study abroad program for which you have already paid a program deposit, please review this policy and take the following steps:
1. Speak with Rutgers Global–Study Abroad, specifically your study abroad adviser. We may be able to help you find a way to still participate, even if withdrawing seems inevitable.
2. Review the withdrawal timelines and financial obligations below. Remember: program deposits are non-refundable.
3. If, after speaking with Rutgers Global–Study Abroad, you still intend to withdraw, you must fill out and sign the Withdrawal Form.
Withdrawals are not considered official and valid until a completed WITHDRAWAL FORM is received. Withdrawals will be effective on the date we receive your email with the Withdrawal Form attached.
