Billing, Cancellation, & Refund Policies

Be informed. Understand these policies. They have an impact on your Off-Campus Study options. 
 
Program Fees and Billing 

Program fees for Rhodes programs vary but generally include tuition and housing. Rhodes College reserves the right to cancel, alter, or amend any part of a Rhodes program or to increase fees should circumstances make these actions advisable or necessary.

In the event that a student chooses to withdraw from the program after being accepted, the student will be responsible for the entire cost of the program. Refunds will be considered only in cases of serious illness or emergency and the amounts of refunds will be determined individually on the basis of recoverable costs by Rhodes at the time of the withdrawal.
 
Non-Rhodes programs′ fees and billing policies may differ from those of Rhodes College; you are encouraged to know the policy for your chosen non-Rhodes program provider


Cancellation and Refund Policy

In the event of cancellation of an entire session of a Rhodes program before commencement of the program, all monies paid to Rhodes prior to that time will be refunded. Should an unavoidable event such as epidemic, civil unrest, or threat of terrorist activity result in a partial cancellation, a prorated refund of all fees, together with an appropriate evaluation of academic credit, will follow. These actions will terminate any further liability on the part of Rhodes.
