All refunds listed below are additional to the mandatory $500 cancellation fee. Please also refer to the Letter of Agreement which all students must sign and submit before beginning their program. Internship Program students should also consult the TAU International Internship Program Agreement for additional refund and cancellation information regarding internships.
Withdrawal prior to or on the first day of class: 100% of tuition refunded minus confirmation fee and cancellation fee. Note that for study abroad year/semester programs, the first day of class refers to the first day of the required Hebrew Ulpan.
Withdrawal after the first day of class, but no later than five days after the beginning of classes: refund 50% of tuition minus confirmation fee and cancellation fee.
Thereafter (if enrolled for a single semester): no refund.
Thereafter, with respect to Students enrolled for the entire academic year and who withdraw during the first semester: refund second-semester tuition and summer semester tuition minus confirmation and cancellation fee.
Thereafter, with respect to Students enrolled for the entire academic year and who withdraw during the second or summer term: no refund.
Tuition assistance, grants, and scholarships provided by the Program and TAU are contingent on successful completion of the course of studies. Early withdrawal cancels the aforementioned funding and makes the Student liable for the full tuition as covered in clauses above.
Students who have received federal loan disbursements before they withdraw will not receive any refunds and must contact the Department of Education if they want to return any of the funds.
Students will be charged for dormitory accommodations in full, unless they indicate they will be living off campus prior to their payment deadline as set by TAU International.
Students leaving the dormitories after the beginning of the program (after arrival day) will be charged the entire dormitory fee for the duration of the program. Note that for study abroad year/semester programs, the beginning of the program refers to the arrival day of the required Hebrew Ulpan.
TAU is not able to give any refunds for students who leave the dorms early.
Bank Fee – Bounced checks incur a $60 fee and cancellation of any payment plan.
Late payment of fees – This incurs a $100 fee for every 30 days passed the payment deadline and may lead to the cancellation of the Student's payment plan. Students in debt will be refrained from receiving TAU services (e.g registration for courses, grades, library access, and/or receiving TAU academic documents).
Cancellation Fee – A $500 fee is incurred if a student withdraws after TAU Interntional receives the Confirmation Form or if a withdrawal occurs after the first day of classes, whichever one comes first. Note that for study abroad year/semester programs, the first day of class refers to the first day of the required Hebrew Ulpan.
Collection Fees – Tel Aviv University may utilize the services of an attorney and/or collection agent to collect any amount past due, and you will be charged an additional amount equal to the cost of collection (approximately 33% of your outstanding balance) as well as any other fees incurred by Tel Aviv University.
