A $200 deposit must be paid to the International Education Center, 141 S. Clarke St., within 10 days of submitting an application. This deposit holds a place for eligible applicants to this study abroad program. $100 of this deposit is non-refundable, and the remaining $100 is refundable until July 1. This program is highly competitive for undergraduate students; in the event a student is not selected to participate, a full refund of the deposit will be returned to the student. An additional payment of $1100 is due Aug. 1, and the balance of $1100 by Sept. 1. Only in an exceptional case, e.g., an extremely adverse exchange rate, will the cost of the program be increased beyond what is listed on this application. In the unlikely event the International Education Center finds it necessary to cancel a program before the start date, every attempt will be made to give a full refund. If unforeseen events require the shortening of a program after arrival in-country, the International Education Center will determine an equitable, prorated refund.

Financial Aid/Scholarships: Students are eligible to carry existing financial aid and scholarships on Georgia College approved study abroad programs. Students may also be eligible to apply for the Georgia College Study Abroad Scholarship or other funding resources. For more details, please visit our Funding Page.
