Financial Aid

Financial Considerations

  • All students are held to the NC State Study Abroad Withdrawal and Refund Policy and the Program Cancellation Policy, which should be reviewed before committing to and paying the study abroad fee.
  • If participants are required to quarantine or self-isolate during the international portion of the program, participants will be individually responsible for any additional meal expenses incurred and any housing isolation expenses that might extend beyond the length of the program. GeoBlue International Health Insurance, which is provided as a part of the program, provides coverage reimbursement when isolation is a requirement as noted by a treating physician or the host country’s government along with a noted length of quarantine.
  • NC State Study Abroad can not provide refunds for any monies paid to outside entities. Students are individually responsible for any flight change fees or other individually arranged expenses. Participants may consider trip cancellation or interruption coverage if flight delays and cancellations continue to be commonplace.
