About Your Leave
Rescinding Your Study Abroad Leave
Students on two-semester programs considering returning after one semester should see Rescinding a Leave on the Class Deans website. Students wishing to rescind their Study Abroad Leave should notify the Office for International Study and their class dean in writing.
If you rescind your study abroad leave in order to register for classes in Northampton, that decision will be binding, and you will not normally be eligible to have off-campus study status reinstated.
Leave may be rescinded until the first day of classes each semester; however, you are responsible for any nonrefundable fees and deposits already paid to the study abroad program on your behalf. You are also responsible for contacting the Office of Residence Life to request a room.
If you withdraw from your study abroad program after the program has started, you are responsible for any nonrefundable fees and withdrawal fees charged by the study abroad program, and may not return to Smith that semester if classes have already begun at Smith.
Students approved for study abroad for one semester who want to extend their study abroad experience into the following semester should contact the Office for International Study to discuss their options.
