Refund Policy

If an applicant withdraws prior to May 1, 2017, the student will receive a full refund of all monies advanced, except for any deposits.

If a student withdraws after May 1, but prior to the first date of the respective program, only unit fees (tuition) will be refunded. All other fees will be forfeited.

If a student withdraws during the course of the program, all fees including unit fees are forfeited.

In the Event the Program is Canceled

Unforeseen events beyond our control may require substantial modification or cancellation of a program. If the Program is cancelled, students will be immediately notified by email, and assistance will be provided to those students who wish to enroll in another ABA-approved summer abroad program. Among the reasons a program may be cancelled or modified are the following:

1. Area of Instability. If the U.S. State Department Consular Information Sheet for the country in which the program is conducted indicates that it is an “area of instability,” students will be promptly notified, and the program will be cancelled or modified. Even if the country has not been officially deemed an “area of instability,” The University of Denver Sturm College of Law and Pacific McGeorge School of Law may cancel or substantially modify a program where it deems the risk of harm to be at an unacceptable level.

2. Travel Warning. If, prior to the commencement of a program or during the course of a program, a serious U.S. State Department Travel Warning is issued for the country in which the program will be conducted, students will be promptly notified of the warning and be given an opportunity to withdraw from the program.

3. War, civil unrest, terror threats, epidemics, or health hazards which pose unacceptable risks of harm to participants.

4. Unforeseen events, such as fires, extreme weather, or natural disasters, which render the classrooms or other site facilities, including student housing, unavailable or unsuitable for use.

5. Labor unrest or strikes which make transportation to the site or the use of essential facilities at the site impossible, unduly difficult, or hazardous.

6. Incapacity or unavailability of key or necessary faculty or personnel, for which no substitute can be arranged in a timely manner.

7. Low enrollment. If the Program has fewer than the minimum required number of admitted students as of April 1, 2017, the Program may be subject to cancellation.

The College of Law will promptly notify admitted students of any cancellation or substantial modification and the reasons therefore.

All fees will be returned within 20 days if the program is cancelled, except for room and board payments utilized prior to the date of cancellation.
