Refund Policy

Application fees will not be refunded.

Because faculty and staff salary commitments must be made in advance and the costs of plant operations are fixed, the College must follow a very limited refund policy. Details of this policy as it relates to tuition, room, and board follow. Appeals for refunds due to extenuating circumstances may be made in writing to the Program Director or the Dean of Special Programs.

If Skidmore College cancels a program, all fees will be refunded.


Tuition payments (less non-refundable deposits) will be refunded if requested, in writing, thirty (30) days prior to the program start date. 



International Students

In accordance with U.S. Federal regulations, all non-U.S. Citizens must have a student visa to study in the United States. You may not attend Skidmore on a tourist visa. If you are an international student, please click here.
