Withdrawal Policy

Withdrawal Policy

The student’s date of withdrawal is considered to be the date when the Carleton Global Engagement Programs office or Program Director receives the request to withdraw in writing from the student via email, postal mail, or fax. If the student withdraws from the program after acceptance has been confirmed, the student or home institution will not receive a full refund. The student or home institution will be held accountable for any amount forfeited, even if those funds have not yet been forwarded to Carleton College.

Cancellation Policy

In case of program cancellation by Carleton College before the on-site start date, all fees paid to Carleton College will be refunded. If the program must be cancelled after it has begun but before its conclusion, a partial refund may be given. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis, accounting for such factors as the amount of time spent on site, transportation used, and the number of credits that the students remain eligible to earn. Minor alterations in the program will not result in refunds.
