Student Withdrawals

Students withdrawing from a UW study abroad program will be subject to the withdrawal policy outlined in their payment contract. UW Study Abroad uses a standard withdrawal policy for all UW study abroad programs. Students are charged a percentage of the total program fee based on the date of the student’s withdrawal.

If a student cannot participate in a study abroad program due to physical and/or mental debilitation, death or serious illness in the immediate family, severe financial hardship or other extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control before or while participating on a UW study abroad program, the student can submit a petition for emergency withdrawal. If granted, the emergency withdrawal may allow for full or partial relief from financial obligations to the program.

If a student withdraws from your program, the program budget will be updated to include any withdrawal fees recovered.

Please reference the UW Study Abroad Program Withdrawal page for forms and additional information. If a student contacts you about withdrawing from your program, please direct them to this website and have them get in touch with your program manager as soon as possible.
