We strive to make off-campus opportunities available for as many students as possible. In an effort to fill available spaces, we have set the following withdrawal policy for all Global Projects Programs. The Global Experience Office works closely with onsite vendors, travel agencies, and suppliers for an array of services. Their services frequently require our office to make deposits and other non-refundable financial commitments for upcoming programs.

Update: 20-21 Global Projects Program Withdrawal Policy

As a result of the continuously changing environment during the COVID-19 outbreak, we are not currently assessing withdrawal fees for students who wish to withdraw from a program due to health or safety concerns. For more information on program planning and response, please visit We Are WPI.

21-22 Global Projects Program Withdrawal Policy

You are required to commit to or decline your placement offer to your Global Projects Program by the deadline indicated in your notification. Failure to respond to your placement offer will result in removal from the program including possible withdrawal fees.
