Georgia Tech and First-Year Semester Abroad reserve the right to alter or cancel this program due to low enrollment, unavailability of a professor to teach a planned course, or other unforeseen circumstances. If Georgia Tech cancels the program before departure for reasons within its control, and before any non-refundable payments are due to vendors, all fees paid by participants will be refunded. If Georgia Tech cancels the program before departure or while the program is in progress for reasons beyond its control, such as political unrest or danger to participants’ health and safety, or if a student withdraws from the program, only those fees that Georgia Tech is able to have refunded by service providers will be returned to participants. Furthermore, Georgia Tech can never, no matter the reason for cancellation, refund personal expenses incurred. The $500 FYSA deposit paid by students to secure their spot on their preferred FYSA track is non-refundable; if a student withdraws, the student forfeits the deposit.
