Cancellation Policy

Program descriptions and fees are subject to final approval by educational units and the Office of International Education.  Georgia Tech reserves the right to alter or cancel this program due to low enrollment, unavailability of a professor to teach a planned course, or other unforeseen circumstances.  Once Georgia Tech has made payments to service providers, or if Georgia Tech cancels the program before departure or while the program is in progress for reasons beyond its control, such as political unrest or danger to participants' safety, only those fees that Georgia Tech is able to have refunded by service providers will be returned to participants.  If a student withdraws from the program for whatever reason, the student will be responsible for the payment of all fees.
