To cancel your participation in a program, complete the Winter Term Withdrawal questionnaire in your application.
*All students are automatically enrolled in a travel insurance policy through iNext, an outside insurance provider. This policy covers students who must cancel their participation due to serious health issues that occur after October 1. In some instances (evaluated on a case-by-case basis) the travel insurance may insure against changes in mental health. The insurance does not cover any other changes in circumstances such as disciplinary or academic status; job, internship, graduate school or theatrical performance opportunities; leadership opportunities on campus; fear; other personal issues. Students who must cancel their participation after the final day to have the $400 deposit refunded may be able to seek a refund through the travel insurance company.
If airline bookings have already been made by the time of a student's cancellation, some airlines may issue the student a voucher for the value of the ticket less some penalty fee for change in ticketing. These are usually valid for 12 months with the airline issuing the ticket. The airline can provide specific details.
Costs for Study USA vary program to program and are in addition to the tuition for Winter Term, which is included in the fall semester tuition bill.
The cost includes some group meals, transportation, housing, movie tickets, one festival pass, & industry panels.
Basic cost information is available on the Cost and Credit Chart.
Need-based scholarships are available for Elon WT programs through the GEC.
For additional information on scholarships or other funding for study abroad, see the Financial Planning for Global Study page.
If you qualify for a travel grant through any of the fellows or scholars programs, see the appropriate program director for more information on how to apply the grant to your study abroad program. Visit the Deadlines and Events Calendar for travel grant deadlines.
