ISA accepts students on a rolling basis so applications should be submitted as soon as possible. Check the application due date for the program of your choice and submit your application accordingly. ISA recommends submitting applications at least one to two months before the application due date. Students will be required to submit additional application materials through the ISA student portal and full payment by their ISA program's final forms and payment due date. Students who have not paid in full by the ISA final forms and payment due date are subject to a late fee of $50.
This policy applies to all cancellations, regardless of the reason. Your request to withdraw and receive a refund must be made in writing to ISA. The $95 application deposit is non-refundable. If your application is denied due to eligibility requirements, your deposit will be fully refunded. Alternative payment arrangements (financial aid, payment plans, etc.) do not exempt you from this policy.
See our Prices and Dates page to find out when your final forms and payment are due for your program.
Signing and returning all documents in your student portal is your responsibility. If you fail to return the documents after repeated notification (email or call), you will be deemed withdrawn and will not be eligible for any refund.
Housing deposits and housing confirmation fees are non-refundable after the ISA original payment due date.
If you change or defer to another ISA program after your ISA original payment due date, but prior to the final deadline to withdraw, ISA will assess a $500 change fee plus costs incurred. Program changes are not permitted 1-14 days prior to the start of the program.
Prior to your official acceptance, please refrain from booking flights for your program. ISA reserves the right to adjust program dates to accommodate host university calendar changes and is not responsible for airline fare or ticket change fees incurred by program participants.
Other program types including EuroScholars, Internships, and ISA High School have cancellation policies that vary. Please review the policy, available when submitting the online application.
Prices and dates are subject to change without notice.
