Semester Costs and Refund Policy

To find the program costs for a particular program, search for that program’s Brochure Page and click on the Budget Sheet link near the top of the page. The budget sheet details study abroad program costs. For all programs, students are billed for Emory tuition through OPUS and the bill comes from Emory's Office of Student Financial Services during the normal billing cycle for the semester. The non-refundable $300 deposit is applied towards program tuition. Existing federal and Emory-based financial aid applies towards the program costs. 

Depending on the program, students will pay for housing in one of two ways:

  • Student pays a program fee directly to program provider or host institution.
  • Student pays a program fee directly to Emory through OPUS

Refund Policy

Once a student has submitted the non-refundable program deposit (or received approval for a program deposit deferment), the student is deemed to agree to enroll in the program for the semester/year for which the student has applied. Students must notify Emory College Study Abroad in writing to withdraw or defer enrollment.

Before the start of the program, Emory College Study Abroad must often undertake substantial financial commitment on behalf of students prior to the beginning of study abroad programs. Students are responsible for any unrecoverable expenses incurred by Emory on their behalf. Such expenses incurred by Emory will be deducted from any refund that a student is otherwise entitled to receive in connection with a study abroad program. The refund amount will be adjusted to reflect financial obligations Emory has entered into on behalf of the student.

The $75 application fee is non-refundable. The $300 deposit is non-refundable unless a student is not accepted into the chosen study abroad program.

After the program start date, tuition refunds are also subject to the Emory College tuition refund schedule.

If a student is dismissed from the program, no refund will be issued.
