As you build a strong foundation for your future, you can invest with confidence in SIT. We are committed to protecting your investment in case of program suspensions due to health, safety, or security concerns.

As an SIT student, you are entitled to protective measures. COVID-19 related withdrawals from summer 2020, fall 2020, and spring 2021 term also carry these protections.

*SIT received the Innovation in Crisis Response award from GoAbroad for ‘Operation Bring Our Students’ Home’.

These protective measures include:

  1. Reimbursement of all direct payments to SIT if your program is suspended prior to start date* (excludes $50 non-refundable application fee if an application fee was required) 
  2. Should you need to withdraw for any reason from your summer 2020, fall 2020, or spring 2021 program prior to start date, we will issue a full refund for all program fees paid directly to SIT, including the non-refundable $400 deposit** 
  3. Option to change to an equivalent program in any region of the world if your original program is altered or suspended  
  4. Option to defer to the same program during another term at no additional cost (with home college/university approval)  
  5. Option to complete your program’s academic requirements online if your program is suspended while in progress
