Withdrawal and refund policy

You are here

Withdrawal is defined as leaving the program as opposed to dropping a course within the program and adding another course to maintain enrollment requirements.

Notification of withdrawal: All notifications of withdrawal from the program must be made in writing to Penn Summer Abroad at summerabroad@sas.upenn.edu. The date of the written notification is the date by which the adjustment to your academic record and financial calculations will be determined. Failure to attend classes or notification only to the program director or instructors does not constitute formal withdrawal and will result in failing grades in all courses.
