is to be offered. All courses require a 10% non-refundable deposit due within 10 days
    of the close of the registration period during which students register for the course.
    Students that have not made the initial deposit will be removed from the course and
    receive a “no course” designation on their course schedule. Payment schedules for
    each course are determined by the faculty instructor and/or the Office of
    International & Off-Campus Studies and are published prior to spring registration.
    Students adding an off-campus course after the registration period closes are
    required to submit the deposit and any appropriate scheduled payment at the time
    they add the course. Travel reservations will not be made for a student who has not
    adhered to the payment schedule. Failure to adhere to the posted payment schedule
    may result in removal from the course. (See also Adding and Dropping Courses,
    paragraph 10.) Students may use their tuition exchange or remission benefit for these
    programs.
2. Students traveling on Cornell off-campus courses are required to participate in the
    group travel arranged by the Office of International and Off-Campus Studies. The
    Office of International and Off-Campus studies will arrange travel to accommodate a
    student wishing to extend their stay in the destination city/country provided that the
    student: 1) secure permission from the course instructor and contact the Office of
    International and Off-Campus Studies before group transportation has been
    purchased and 2) pays any additional travel costs associated with the extended stay.
3. Initial eligibility is determined at the time the non-refundable deposit is made.
    Students who have paid the deposit and are denied participation at the time of the
    initial eligibility check will be refunded their deposits. Final eligibility is determined
    one month before the course. If a student is placed on academic or disciplinary
    probation (or financial probation, for students who have petitioned to apply their
    need-based financial aid to a pre-approved program) between the time of the initial
    check and the final check, his/her participation will be reviewed by the course
    instructor, the Associate Dean and the Dean of Students. The student may be
    removed from the course or may be given permission to participate with clearly
    established guidelines. Should a student be placed on disciplinary probation after the
    final eligibility check but prior to the departure date for the off-campus course he/she
    will be removed from the course. Faculty members retain full discretion as to student
    enrollment in their courses.
4. In addition to fulfilling all eligibility and payment requirements, students
    participating in Cornell Off-Campus Courses are required to:
    a. attend all pre-departure sessions held by the faculty instructor, Student Health

         Services, and/or the Office of International & Off-Campus Studies;
    b. complete and submit all documents required by the faculty instructor, Student

         Health Services, and/or the Office of International & Off-Campus Studies; and
    c. fulfill additional requirements, as defined in writing by the faculty instructor

         and/or the Office of International & Off-Campus Studies.
5. Students who drop or are removed from an off-campus course are only eligible for

    refunds of monies not already committed as a result of their anticipated
    participation, less the non-refundable deposit. A student’s refund may also be
    reduced if his/her non-participation in the course results in a higher per student cost
    on an existing contract with a third-party organization (e.g. Tour Company).
    Students who drop or are removed from an off-campus course less than 60 days prior
    to the start of the course is scheduled to begin are liable for payment of the full cost
