Withdrawal from Education Abroad Programs
Participants who wish to cancel their intent to participate in a program must provide official written notification by email. The reasons for withdrawal from the program must be stated and supporting documentation must be provided. Participants themselves are responsible for this notification. Notification must come from the student's official Catholic University of America email account or an alternate email address on file with CUAbroad and at the time of application. No verbal statements of withdrawal will be accepted as official. Email notification should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that in addition to the non-refundable application fee and program deposit, students may also be charged a cancellation and withdrawal fee according to the stated policy.
CUA students who cancel or withdraw from an education abroad program are subject to the CUA education abroad Cancellation & Withdrawal policy. Students wishing to appeal the cancellation/withdrawal fee must submit a written petition addressed to the Director of Education Abroad and the Associate Provost for International Affairs. CUAbroad will review the appeal and forward it to the Dean of Undergraduate Studies or the Dean of Graduate Studies for final review and recommendation. CUAbroad will then communicate the appeal decision to the student.
