Cancellations, Emergency or Otherwise

Students who wish to cancel their plans to study abroad may return to campus; however, students are expected to be in residence on the first day of classes. Such a decision requires consultation with the program director, the Office of International Programs, and major adviser at Vassar. If a student wishes to return to campus after classes at Vassar have begun, the student must have permission of the Dean of Studies. Cases will be decided on an individual basis. Please be aware that late cancellations may entail difficulties in course registration, financial aid, and, perhaps, housing, which the Office of International Programs and the Dean of Studies Office will do their best to assist the student. There is also no guarantee that the programs themselves will refund in full, nor that credit will be awarded for partially completed coursework. You must notify the Office of International Programs office in writing of any changes in your study abroad plans.
