program withdrawal

If you must withdraw from your Travel Study course, please carefully read the information contained in the program specific nomination letter. In addition to dropping the course through the Registration Office, you must also complete this form. Your withdrawal date is considered the date (business day) your withdrawal paperwork is received by the Travel and External Study Office. It's important to consider that withdrawing from a Travel Study course may have financial consequences and that you will be held to the terms and conditions of all contracts/documents signed. Typical withdrawals are processed 4-6 weeks from receipt of complete withdrawal paperwork. Any reimbursements of course/exchange fees will be credited to your student account once the withdrawal is fully processed.

In order to withdraw from a Faculty-Led Travel Study course, you must complete the following steps:
