    Withdrawals, Cancellation, Termination, and Refund
    Students participating in Semester & Year Long programs must either accept or reject their study abroad placement by submitting their Placement Acceptance form. If accepting their study abroad placement, students must submit a non-refundable $350 placement acceptance fee. If a student later chooses to withdraw their placement, cancellations must be in writing and sent to Hamline University’s IOCP Office by the date specified in their Placement Acceptance form. If unable to submit a written cancellation by the deadline, the student will be subject to a Hamline cancellation fee of at least $1,500 plus any expenses that Hamline has paid on my behalf at the date of my cancellation.  Also, if the student has already applied to and been accepted by a program or university, the student will be subject to the cancellation policy of the program or university in addition to the Hamline cancellation fee.

    Withdrawals, Cancellation, Termination, and Refund
    If a student chooses to withdraw from a course, cancellations must be in writing and sent to Hamline University’s IOCP Office by the enrollment deadline (see above) for short term courses/seminars. Students will be responsible for full cost of course after these dates. http://bit.ly/Importantdates. No refund is given to students who wish to omit portions of the course. Hamline University reserves the right to terminate the participation of any participant whose conduct is self-destructive, disruptive to the group, or not in line with the Hamline Code of Conduct or the regulations stated in the IOCP Agreement and Release form.  In the case of removal, the participant shall have no claim for refund of any kind for any portion of the program, used or unused. All application fees are non-refundable unless your course is canceled by Hamline University. In the event of cancellation based on extenuating circumstances, refunds for course fees paid are based on recoverable costs. Depending upon the date of cancellation, the entire course cost may be forfeited. Trip cancellation insurance is recommended where applicable. Due to circumstances beyond our control (increases in gas tax, government fees, change in the exchange rate etc.) the price of the course may be adjusted up to 9% without consultation of participants. If a course price increases by more than 10% (due to inflation or fewer participants) a student may cancel with no penalty. No refund is given to students who wish to omit portions of the course.

    Summer Programs

    Summer Term 2016 
    Application Deadline: February 29, 2016
    Non-Hamline summer programs can be applied for on a rolling basis, but students must first complete the Hamline application for their chosen program and receive approval from the IOCP office before they may directly apply to their program . It is best to start the process for this at your earliest convenience as deadlines may be in place by the providers of these programs. Please contact a study abroad adviser for additional information.
