Refund Policy

Syracuse Abroad Refund Policy for Fall 2021 programs

Syracuse Abroad refund policy is based on the timing of student’s decision to withdraw from the program or defer it to a future semester.

If the decision is communicated to Syracuse Abroad before the commitment deadline:

  • Fall 2021 study abroad students can withdraw or defer enrollment to a new semester, without any financial penalty from Syracuse Abroad, before the respective program commitment deadline. This means students will not incur charges on their bursar account from Syracuse Abroad if they withdraw or defer within their programs deadline.

Below are the commitment deadlines by program:

Program Commitment Deadline
Florence   
       The Student Hotel housing option June 30
       Apartment housing option July 30
Madrid  
       El Faro housing option June 30
       HUBR housing option June 10
      Host family housing option July 30
London Jul 30
Strasbourg July 30
Santiago  June 30
Central Europe June 30

If the decision is communicated to Syracuse Abroad after the commitment deadline:

  • Syracuse Abroad will work with each student to minimize the financial impact of a withdrawal/cancellation. Refunds will be consistent with the University refund policy stated on the Tuition, Fees, and Related Policies Bulletin (page 16).  Students are encouraged to read the policy.
  • The actual amount of the refund will depend on a variety of factors including type of housing and the point in time when the withdrawal/cancellation takes place.

At any point and pending availability, students can switch to a new program at a different Syracuse Abroad center.  Unrecoverable expenses/fees may apply. Please contact your Syracuse Abroad program advisor to inquire.

Students can also defer their application to a subsequent semester. If they wish to defer enrollment, the application fee and advanced deposit of $575 (applicable to visiting students only) will be applied to the future program.  Unrecoverable expenses/fees may apply. If Syracuse Abroad cancels the program, the application fee and deposit will be refunded to the student.  Please contact your Syracuse Abroad program advisor to make this change.

For World Partner students, both the partner’s and Syracuse Abroad’s refund policies will apply.  Students are encouraged to research both policies.
