WITHDRAWAL FROM A PROGRAM
Westfield State expects students who provide a written commitment to participate in a program, including but not limited to making a required advance deposit for participation, have undertaken an obligation to pay the full cost of the program fee whether or not the student actually attends or completes the study abroad program. That program fee is subject to billing through a student’s account at Westfield State.
Solely in its discretion, Westfield may reduce a billing for this program when a student informs the International Programs Office in writing that he or she is withdrawing in advance of the program’s commencement, consistent with any policies IPO may from time to time set. There will be no refunds for program cancellation less than 30 days in advance of a planned program departure, or for withdrawal once the program has commenced. Should a student be suspended from a study abroad program, all resulting costs associated with the student’s return home are the sole responsibility of the student. Students who miss scheduled advance payments may be dismissed from a program.
