What if my son or daughter has to withdraw from a program?

Please visit the Program Withdrawal page to see the students' responsibilities.

If student withdraws before the $165 deposit is due:

  • No penalty

If the deposit has been paid, WWTP airfare has been purchased, housing contract has been signed, and study abroad fee has been posted to student account:

  • No refund of $165 deposit
  • No refund of $500 study abroad fee
  • Student is responsible for cancellation fee and/or full price of plane ticket.
  • If a housing contract has been signed and housing has already been allocated at campus abroad, the student may be responsible for paying the housing costs for the entire length of time as stated in the contract.  For example, if you sign a Vienna housing contract and housing is already allocated, then the housing charge is still owed even if your son or daughter does not go to Vienna.
