Once you have applied and are accepted, all commitment fees (deposits) are to be submitted online via our e-payment process at: bursar.villanova.edu. Once, there please select the option, Deposit – Summer Study Abroad and proceed accordingly.
Commitment fee must be received within two weeks of acceptance to program, otherwise student will be automatically withdrawn from program. Instructions for commitment fee payment will be included in the formal OIS acceptance letter.
Non-VU students will be sent VU account log-in information. This information will allow non-VU students to access their new VU student account, including electronic invoice for summer program and transcript request upon completion of program.
All students will be billed in early April by the Bursar’s Office for the balance due which is the cost of the program plus the general fee less your deposit. All students will receive an email from the Bursar's Office when summer invoice V-bill is available electronically. If you don't receive an email advising you that your bill is available, please contact OIS because payment in full must be received before the departure date.
For additional information, please contact OIS at 610-519-6412 or the Faculty Program Coordinator.
The deposit is not refundable under any circumstances after a student's application has been accepted. If a student withdraws from the Program by notifying the OIS in writing on or before the Friday before Spring Break begins (Summer Program Application Deadline), the University will refund all fees paid except the deposit.
If a student withdraws from the Program for medical reasons after the Friday before Spring Break begins (Summer Program Application Deadline), but before April 1, and if s/he provides evidence of medical necessity from a physician, the OIS will refund all fees paid except the deposit.
If a student withdraws from the Program for non-medical reasons after the Friday before Spring Break begins (Summer Program Application Deadline), but before April 1, the University will refund all fees paid except the deposit and those expenses that have been paid on the student’s behalf.
After April 1, no refunds of fees will be made for any reason, and the student will be responsible for the full program fee. In addition, no refunds will be made for meals, accommodations, tuition or transportation missed by a student.
The participant is responsible for any and all costs arising from voluntary or involuntary withdrawal from the Program prior to its completion, including withdrawal caused by illness or disciplinary action.
If a Program is cancelled, or if in the sole judgment of the University, a Program has been so radically changed in itinerary or curriculum that it would be unfair to require students to participate and a student elects in writing to withdraw from the Program, the University will refund all fees paid. Under these circumstances, the University will have no additional responsibility or liability to the student or his/her parents or guardian.
All issues related to outstanding debts, collection of fees, and receipt issuance will be handled by the Office of the Bursar.
