For Short-Term Abroad Programs, students will pay tuition and a program fee, which typically includes insurance, lodging, and may include cultural activities or some meals.  Students will also incur out-of-pocket expenses that typically include airfare, some meals, and other personal expenses. Refer to each individual course website to determine the costs of participation.  Payment is due in accordance with the GW Student Accounts schedule

Please note, students will be asked to submit a non-refundable $500 Program Deposit within two weeks of their acceptance into the program.  This deposit will be credited back to the student via the GW Student Account if the student does participate in the program.  

Students who are GW employees are eligible to participate in Short-Term Abroad Programs, and their tuition benefits are handled accordingly through Student Accounts. However, GW employees must pay full program fees for costs not associated with tuition. GW employees are responsible for contacting the GW Benefit Services office to determine their eligibility for tuition benefits.

Students who withdraw will be subject to the following withdrawal and refund policy:

  • Withdrawal after the 2 week acceptance period: 100% tuition & travel fee refund, minus $500 withdrawal fee & any unrecoverable costs
  • Withdrawal 2 weeks before start of program (first day of class): 50% tuition refund, minus all travel fees & $500 withdrawal fee
  • Withdrawal 13 days or less before program: No refund

If a student must withdraw from the program, s/he must notify the Faculty Director and the Office for Study Abroad.  A student cannot withdraw from the program after it has begun.
