Withdrawal and Cancellation Policies

Withdrawal Policy

A student must submit his/her/their request to withdraw in writing via email, postal mail, or fax to the Carleton Global Engagement Programs office and the Program Director. The student’s date of withdrawal is considered to be the date when the Carleton Global Engagement Programs office or Program Director receives the request to withdraw. If the student withdraws from the program after acceptance has been confirmed and payments have been made, Carleton will follow the schedule below to determine the forfeited amount. The student or home institution will be held accountable for any amount forfeited, even if those funds have not yet been forwarded to Carleton College.

Carleton College does not award partial academic credit. Students who receive approval to withdraw before completing course requirements are not eligible to earn academic credit from Carleton, and will have DRP’s (drops) recorded for the courses they are enrolled in at the time of the withdrawal.
