If a student applies online through the RILA website and then decides to cancel his/her application before REGISTRATION deadline, whether or not he/she has already sent the required documents and fees, the application will be cancelled and no other fee except the $50 application fee will be required (any other fee already paid will be reimbursed). Otherwise, the following conditions apply to students who have completed their registrations, should they decide to withdraw from the program afterward.
If the student notifies RILA of his/her decision to withdraw from a RILA program:
- After registration deadline, but at least three months preceding the day classes begin in that course (e.g., if classes start on July 1st, on or before April 1st), the student will have to pay 100% of the rent for the apartment assigned to him/her and one third of tuition;
- Between 3 months and 1 month before the beginning of classes (e.g., if classes start on July 1st, between April 2nd and June 1st), the student will pay 100% of rent plus two third of tuition;
- Less than 1 month before the beginning of classes (e.g., if classes start on July 1st, on or after June 2nd), the student will pay 100% of rent plus 100% of tuition and all expenses. (The optional Italian language class is also not-refundable.)
Because RILA is a small program, with a limited number of available spots, this cancellation policy will be strictly applied, and no exceptions will be allowed.
Thank you for your understanding.
