Per UNC System guidance, all university-related domestic and international travel remains restricted due to COVID-19. We are hopeful this restriction will be revised and education abroad travel can resume for spring ’21, and are planning accordingly. If applicants for spring ’21 choose to withdrawal or defer their application for any reason related to COVID-19, Study Abroad will honor that request and refund the admin fee.
The Study Abroad Office has adopted a COVID-19 Admin Fee Refund Policy to offer students the most flexibility during these uncertain times, due to the global pandemic.
Students who applied to study abroad for the Fall 2020, Academic Year 2020-21, and Spring 2021 are eligible to withdraw their application prior to program start for any reason due to concerns related to COVID-19 and will receive a full refund on the admin fee.
The Study Abroad Withdrawal and Refund Policy applies to all other and future terms (including if you choose to defer your application to a future term).
