When admitted, student agrees to formally register for the course (as soon as registration is available) through myUVM and acknowledge responsibility for all course-related tuition and fees on their student account.

Program fee refunds may be granted in rare circumstances and must be requested at least 61 days prior to departure, in writing, to Continuing and Distance Education at firstname.lastname@example.org
. No program fee refunds shall be made less than 60 days before departure. A portion of the program fee MAY be returned, excluding the unrecoverable program fee expenses and the non-refundable deposit.

Refund of airfare must be directly pursued with the airline in which you booked. Refund of tuition follows the UVM tuition refund schedule.
For disciplinary reasons, a student may be sent home at his/her own expense, without any refund, at the discretion of the Faculty Director. You are strongly advised to purchase travel insurance in the event of cancellation for any reason.
If UVM cancels the course due to insufficient enrollment or for any other reason, you will receive a full refund of course-related tuition and fees, including the full program fee.
