The program may be canceled due to insufficient numbers until the final payment date.

-Death of the student or death in the immediate family (parent, legal guardian, spouse, child, or sibling).

Partial refund of program fees may be granted in instances of withdrawal prior to the start of the program under the following circumstances:

The student will be required to submit all relevant medical records for review and evaluation by Florida State University's Health and Wellness Center. The Health and Wellness Center will advise International Program's refund committee of its recommendation. International Program's refund committee will notify the student of the decision.

-Exceptional circumstances that could not have been foreseen and were beyond the control of the student, as approved by the International Program's refund committee.

-Timely notification in relation to the event that caused the need for withdrawal will be considered in evaluating refund requests. In no instance will a request be considered if it is made after the end of the semester for which the refund is requested.

-Refunds cannot be granted, under any circumstances, in instances of withdrawal after a program has begun.

-Applicants who apply and are accepted after the published due dates remain liable for fees in accordance with the published due dates.

Before this trip, theatre was like a friend to me. It was a hobby, a place of work, something to study and something to keep me entertained. Now, it is something completely different. It is a passion—Dina Sheikh

I feel as though I have opened myself up to a lot of new ideas, and feel far more aware and respectful of the world outside of my own country, as well as respectful of my home and where I come from—Shane Davis
