FAQ's & CONCERNS
In consideration for being permitted to participate in a Tulane Study Abroad Program, I hereby agree to and represent the following:
Payment of the deposit and completion of required forms are evidence of my commitment to participate in the above-indicated program. I understand that withdrawal from the program for any reason will result in forfeiture of the deposit. Tulane University reserves the right to decline any application or to cancel any program without notice, in which event all money paid will be refunded in full.
I will accept unconditionally the authority of the designated representative of Tulane University and/or foreign university international office designee throughout participation in the program.
I will complete the designated period of study abroad with the program (i.e., from the first formal meeting of the group overseas to the end of the last examination). Withdrawal from the program prior to completion of the year will result in a loss of credit.
I will pay the tuition and fees of the study abroad program for the entire period of the program. Financial commitments abroad are made in advance on the assumption that students are re-enrolled for the full period. It is understood and agreed that students and/or parents will provide any additional amount necessary to cover actual expenditures as well as any deficit occasioned by factors and circumstances not now known (e.g., an increase in cost of room and board or travel, unforeseen personal expenses, exchange rate variances).
I will accept the housing and living arrangements made for me by the designated representative of Tulane University, resident director and/or foreign institution designee and to abide by the regulations governing the conduct of students in these lodgings. I may not change these lodgings during the academic year without permission obtained in advance from the resident director to whom full particulars are to be sent before I take any action.
I hereby agree, on accepting an offer of accommodation, in lodgings provided by the BHI5 program, that I shall pay in full the of $550 USD required throughout the period of the entire period of the program, and that, should I vacate such accommodation before the end of that period I shall be liable for any fees or rents outstanding for the remainder of that period. I agree to pay for any damages for which I am responsible.
Should such permission be obtained, I agree to settle on demand and in full, fees and charges made or supported by the regulations of the Residence Halls or the lodging officer in connection with my vacating assigned quarters. In the case of students living in Residence Halls, this would mean the forfeiture of fees paid in advance for the term or, if fees are paid on a monthly basis, the forfeiture of
one month’s fees upon vacating the lodgings and any additional fees imposed by the said residence hall. I also understand the ordinary room and board fees will be paid by me directly to the residence authorities according to their published terms of residence (except for participants of JYA France – Paris whose fees are billed through Tulane Accounts Receivable).
In order to utilize fully the foreign academic facilities and to derive the utmost benefit from the experience of being taught by foreign professors, I recognize that I am required to attend all regularly scheduled classes. Class absences in excess of those established by each program, as on the home campus, are grounds for removal from the program.
I will conduct myself in such a way as to reflect credit upon Tulane University and the U.S.A., and to undertake seriously my academic assignments in order to maintain for subsequent Tulane study abroad participants the opportunities that my predecessors preserved for me. I understand that my behavior must be in accordance with the laws of the country in which I will reside during study abroad, the rules and regulations of the host institution, and Tulane University’s Code of Student Conduct.
I will use the language of the country in all situations.
I will abide by the academic regulations and procedures as stated in the undergraduate catalog of Tulane University, by the Code of Student Conduct and by the Honor Code of my college.
I and my parent/guardian authorize release of medical records held by the any hospital, clinic, or doctor to the designated representative of BHI5 should a medical necessity arise. I, the participant, hereby authorize the designated representative of BHI5 and/or resident associate director, at her or his discretion, to notify and make full disclosure to my parent or guardian in the event of an emergency. On rare occasions, emergency requiring hospitalization and/or surgery develops. In order to prevent a dangerous delay in case of a medical emergency, the signature found below of the parent/guardian authorizes the designated representative of Tulane University and/or resident director to secure whatever treatment is deemed necessary for the student participant, including the administration of an anesthetic surgery.
Parents and students should be aware that there will not be the same type of support structure at home. The program assumes that students who are accepted are emotionally mature and are aware of what is considered proper behavior, and, therefore do not need specific rules for every situation but will follow their good judgment.
The designated representative of BHI5 Program, in consultation with the student’s Parents has the authority to terminate, at any time program participation of a participant whose continuation would be detrimental to him/herself, to others, or to the University. The decision termination is made at the sole discretion of the above named employees of BHI5 or Partners of the program and their decision is final. Return travel and any other expenses due to such program termination are to be paid by the student.
I grant the Program Director full authority to take whatever action she (he) deems warranted under the circumstances for my health, safety and welfare including but not limited to assisting with arrangement for medical treatment and my transportation home. I will pay any additional costs incurred in all such events.
