APPLICATION DEADLINE: please refer to utpa.edu/oip for deadlines
DISCLAIMER: Some study abroad program deadlines may vary due to payment deadlines to hotels, medical insurance, etc.
Program fee payments are generally considered non-refundable. The following exceptions apply:
BEFORE THE APPLICATION DEADLINE (refer to utpa.edu/oip)
- If you withdraw your application before the application deadline, or if you are not accepted, your student ASSIST account will receive financial credit.
- Please complete the WITHDRAWAL FORM below
- Refunds on tuition and fees are based on the UTPA Refund Policy.
AFTER THE APPLICATION DEADLINE
- If you withdraw after the deadline you may be eligible for a partial refund if funds have not already been spent on your behalf.
- Complete the WITHDRAWAL FORM below and the PARTIAL REFUND REQUEST FORM below to make your request.
For UTPA students, refunds are posted to the student's account on ASSIST, viewable through the UTPA website. Refund policy for tuition and fee refund checks will be mailed within 45 days to the student’s billing address on file at the Office of the Registrar (within 30 days if the student did not receive some form of financial assistance through the University). Refunds for a student under the installment plan will be first applied to the student’s unpaid balance. Refunds on tuition and fees are based on the UTPA Refund Policy.
Students who do not officially withdraw through the Office of the Registrar will be responsible for tuition, fees and any circumstances arising from failure to withdraw.
For non-UTPA students, because you do not have UTPA access, a check will automatically be sent to your home address.
Withdrawing from study abroad:
If you need to withdraw at any time from study abroad, complete the WITHDRAWAL FORM below. Once we receive the form, we will remove your application from our database and notify your study abroad instructor(s).
If you withdraw after the study abroad program deadline and would like to be considered for a partial refund of your deposit, please complete the PARTIAL REFUND REQUEST FORM below. Note that all deposits are considered non-refundable, and partial refunds are awarded only for serious medical, personal or financial reasons.
Partial refund requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and the partial refund amount is based on portion of the program cost that has not already been expended. If the study abroad program included airfare and we have already purchased your plane ticket, it will be your responsibility to request and negotiate a refund with the airline company.
