The pages in this section are designed to help answer any and all questions that students might have about the study abroad process. We also have information targeted to students at each stage of the study abroad process:
The Office of International Programs has a number of student policies governing application and acceptance; program payments, scholarships, withdrawals and refunds; transfer and approval of grades and credits from abroad; and student conduct for study away including program dismissals. All of these policies for students are published on this website and/or in the written pre-departure materials provided to all outbound study abroad students. Appeals to any Office of International Programs policy must be made in writing to the Director of International Programs. Appeals will be considered on a case-by-case basis and the Director of International Programs may request additional information and/or request an interview with the complainant. All policy appeals must be addressed within one year of the original incident or action that prompts the complaint.
