Payment Policies

Payment and Cancellation Policy for Online Programs

You will receive an invoice 4 weeks before the program start date and will have 30 days to pay it. If you wish to withdraw your application, you can do so without any penalties by notifying the ELC in writing at least 31 days before the program start date. If you do not cancel 31 days in advance, or if you submit your application less than 31 days before the program start date, you will be responsible for all program fees.

On-Campus Payment Policies

$100 Application Fee

A $100 nonrefundable application fee is required for all on-campus programs. This fee is used to ship the Form I-20 to your country and to process your paperwork. If a second shipment is needed (for example, in the case of a deferral), an additional payment may be required depending on the situation. 

Housing Deposit and Payment

If you choose to live in a homestay, a homestay deposit is due approximately two months before the move-in date, and full payment is due approximately one month before move-in. Please visit the Do Host Family website for more details.

Tuition and Fees Payment

All UNCW tuition and fees must be paid before the program start date. Payment plans may be available in special circumstances. Details concerning payment plans must be approved by the ELC Director before the program start date.

Tuition Refund Policy

After the first day of classes, all program fees are non-refundable. Any changes to your program selections (for example: length of program, housing, meals) must be made no later than two weeks before the program start date.
