Withdrawals and Refunds

For those students participating in an undergraduate Fordham-run semester or short-term program, the following withdrawal and refund policies applies:

All withdrawal requests must be made by the student in writing and are effective on the date they are received by the Office of International and Study Abroad Programs. The Program Deposit and Application Fee are non-refundable except in circumstances when the University cancels your study abroad program.

Sixty (60) days prior to the published start of the study abroad program orientation, the Program Fee may be fully refundable with the exception of any non-recoverable costs*. Thirty (30) to fifty-nire (59) days prior to the start of the orientation, 25 percent of the program fee may be refunded with the exception of any non-recoverable costs*. Less than thirty (30) days prior to the start of the orientation, no refund will be issued.

Students who leave at the start or during the study abroad program, or who are dismissed from the program by Fordham University will not receive a refund and are responsible for paying their own travel expenses.

Tuition is charged by and paid to the Office of Student Accounts. Tuition rates, payment options, and the University’s tuition refund policy are available online at the Student Accounts Website.

*Non-recoverable costs - Please note that Fordham University makes a financial commitment to our partners abroad on behalf of students immediately after the due date of the student program fee deposits. If a student withdraws from the program or from arranged housing after the deposit has been paid, only a partial refund may be issued. In the event that a refund is not possible, you will be liable for full program fee costs and will be billed accordingly.
