Cancelling your participation in a program can only be done by completing a cancellation form, and submitting it to the Isabella Cannon Global Education Center. Students submitting a cancellation form for WT Programs are subject to the following payment schedule:
Sep. 8, 2014: Students who cancel after this date will not have the deposit returned.
Sep. 29, 2014: Full payment deadline
Sep. 30 - Oct. 13, 2014: Students who cancel between these dates will still be responsible for 50% of the cost of the program.

As of Nov. 1, 2014: Students who cancel after November 1st will still be responsible for the full program cost.
Note: You are responsible for the costs noted above if you cancel regardless of whether you have paid the program fees at the time of cancellation.
Deposit Refunds - If you have paid the deposit and are cancelling your participation prior to the deposit refund deadline, the amount will remain as a credit on your account to be applied towards the following semester’s billing. If you have any questions about your deposit, you may contact the Bursar’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336-278-5300.
*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 issues of physical health to the student or an immediate family member (parent or grandparent) 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.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact Woody Pelton, Dean of International Programs. We encourage you to address any questions you may have as soon as possible, as a delay in doing so could result in increased charges for which you may be liable.
Basic cost information is available on the Cost and Credit Chart. Detailed cost information is available on the budget sheet (link at top of page).
