Financial Considerations during COVID

  • Students are strongly encouraged to obtain Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) Insurance and Trip Interruption Coverage, such as CISI or Gallagher, to help mitigate financial risks.
  • Students are individually responsible for any flight change fees or other individually arranged expenses.
  • If participants are required to quarantine or self-isolate during the international portion of the program, participants will be individually responsible for any associated additional expenses, such as meals. If quarantine or self-isolation extends beyond the length of the scheduled program, students will also be responsible for additional fees such as student support fees and accommodation costs.
  • NC State Study Abroad can not provide refunds for any monies paid to outside entities.
