Study Abroad Costs

PROGRAM FEES
 
A $100 application fee is required, which will be charged to the student’s Bursar account. For students who apply to a program that is canceled by the Study Abroad Office, the $100 application fee will be refunded or transferred to a different program. The application fee will be refunded to wait-listed students who are unable to participate due to program space limitations. Study abroad fees are added to the student's tuition fees. Currently, study abroad fees are $1,260 per semester for fees and insurance and $760 per program plus $48/month in insurance for short-term programs. These costs are billed to the student's Bursar account for the term abroad are in addition to exchange tuition or affiliate program fees. Enrollment in the University of Mississippi's international health insurance policy is required and cannot be waived.

WITHDRAWAL POLICY
 
WITHDRAWAL POLICY
If, for any reason, a student chooses to withdraw from a program, a Study Abroad Withdrawal Form must be completed and submitted to the UM Study Abroad Office.  Verbal statements of withdrawal will not be considered as notification of withdrawal; therefore, the student will still be considered a program participant until written notification is received.  Availability for refund will be based on the date that the Withdrawal Form is received by the Study Abroad Office.  If acceptance is revoked for any reason, the student is responsible for fees incurred as stated below.

WITHDRAWAL PRIOR TO COMMITMENT AND PRIOR TO THE COMMITMENT DEADLINE – If a student withdraws from a program prior to changing their own status to "Committed" and before the Commitment Deadline (November 1 for Winter and Spring programs, April 1 for Summer and Fall programs), the student will be liable to pay only the UM Study Abroad Application Fee of $100.00 and any non-recoverable costs (such as housing deposits, field trip pre-payments, etc.) incurred and/or committed on the student’s behalf by UM and its affiliates at the time of withdrawal. 

WITHDRAWAL AFTER COMMITMENT AND/OR AFTER THE COMMITMENT DEADLINE – If a students withdraws from a program after changing their status to "Committed" at any time before or after the Commitment Deadline (November 1 for Winter and Spring programs, April 1 for Summer and Fall programs), or if a student withdraws from a program without having committed after the Commitment Deadline, he/she will be financially responsible for the $100 UM Study Abroad Application Fee and a $500 withdrawal penalty, as well as for any non-recoverable costs (such as housing deposits, field trip pre-payments, etc.) incurred and/or committed on the student’s behalf by UM and its affiliates at the time of withdrawal.

In the event that extreme circumstances during the 30 days prior to the program’s start cause the student to need to withdraw, the Study Abroad Director will review the situation on a case-by-case basis.  At the discretion of the director, any funds that are recoverable and uncommitted may be refunded, less the $500 penalty and $100 application fee.  

Under no circumstances can any refund requests be considered for students who have completed a program.  

Any disputes over refunds after an official withdrawal must be directed to The University of Mississippi Refund Committee through the Office of the Bursar.
