Refund Policy

All notification of withdrawal must be made in writing via fax or certified mail to: Registrar, Customized, Faculty-led Programs, AIFS Study Abroad, 1 High Ridge Park, Stamford, CT 06905. The fax number is 203.399.5597. Postmark date or date of fax transmission is considered date of withdrawal. All withdrawal statements must be signed by the applicant, or they will not be processed.

If a student withdraws on or before Friday, June 14, 2019, a full refund will be made less $150 plus any non-refundable deposits paid either by the student or by AIFS on the student’s behalf.

If a student withdraws after Friday, June 14, 2019, but on or before Friday, July 12, 2019, for any reason except medical covered by the AIFS Fees Refund and Medical Insurance Policy, the $450 deposit fee is forfeited, along with any non-refundable deposits paid either by the student or by AIFS on the student’s behalf.

If a student is forced to withdraw from the program because of covered medical reasons after final fees have been paid but before departure, a refund will be made through the Fees Refund and Medical Insurance Policy, less a $150 processing fee and the $210 insurance premium. The policy requires written proof of medical reasons provided by your physician.

Students withdrawing voluntarily for any reason after Friday, July 12, 2019, including withdrawals because of medical reasons not covered under the medical refund policy, receive no refund of fees paid unless they are able to provide a qualified replacement. In this case, they receive a full refund of all payments made less the $150 processing and cancellation fee and any non-refundable deposits.

Replacement students must pay in full at the time of application. Flights cannot be arranged for replacement students applying after Friday, June 14, 2019. Once the program has started, students withdrawing receive no refund under any circumstances. This refund policy is necessary because the booking of facilities in Barcelona requires substantial non-refundable payments and commitments by AIFS in advance.
