Participants who wish to cancel must provide official notification by email and cancel their online application. Include the reasons for cancellation from the program. Participants, not their home institution and/or power of attorney, are responsible for notification.
Notification should be sent to the coordinator of Global Student Teaching at the University of Minnesota, Morris.
Cancellation is effective as of the date the email was sent. However, participants will continue to accrue non–recoverable costs based on the University of Minnesota cancellation and tuition refund policy.
Participants are responsible for all program fees until notification is received by the coordinator of GST. Institutions paying on behalf of the participant are responsible for all program fees until official notice of cancellation by the student is received. It is the student’s responsibility to also notify the institution paying their program fees of their cancellation from the program.
The application fee is non–refundable.
Global Student Teaching arranges placements for participants upon receipt of the non–refundable application fee. At this point, GST incurs certain non-recoverable costs. Therefore, any participant who cancels at any time after the application fee has been received will not have the application fee refunded. Students can defer to another term to avoid cancellation fees.
The information contained in this cancellation policy supersedes any verbal or other written information that anyone may receive regarding this policy. This policy is subject to any applicable refund policies of non–University of Minnesota institutions.
