Conditions of Participation

I, the applicant, do hereby accept my participation in the OHIO International Consulting Program (OICP) and agree to all terms and conditions of the program. Furthermore, I verify that I am at least eighteen (18) years of age and fully competent to sign this agreement.

1.       Personal Conduct. I agree to participate in all aspects of the program, including orientation, instruction, excursions, and evaluation. I understand that Ohio University and its representatives have the authority to establish rules of conduct necessary for the operation of the program during the entire period of the program. Should I violate stated rules, the Ohio University Student Code of Conduct, demonstrate disruptive behavior, or through my conduct bring the program or its participants into disrepute or legal or physical jeopardy, I may be removed from the program and/or face other sanctions. If I am dismissed from the program, I will lose all academic credit and will remain responsible for all program costs incurred on my behalf.

2.       Financial Responsibility and Cancellation. I acknowledge my indebtedness for the total program cost which includes the non-refundable deposit fee. I further understand the following:

a.       Ohio University reserves the right to make cancellations, changes, or substitutions in cases of emergency or changed conditions or in the interest of the group. Should Ohio University cancel the program, full refunds of recoverable expenses will be made.

b.      The $500 deposit fee is nonrefundable. The deposit will be applied to the cost of the program. If I should choose to withdraw from the program, I understand that I will be held responsible for these costs.

c.      If I choose to withdraw from the program for any reason, I must notify the Program Director in writing. If I fail to do so, I may be held responsible for the full program costs.

d.      If I must withdraw from the program for medical reasons, I must provide the Program Director with the statement of a medical doctor who examines me at the time when I become ill. This statement must certify that I must withdraw for medical reasons. In the case of life-threatening emergency, this pre-certification will be waived. The College of Business will provide refunds of all recoverable costs whenever possible in the case of certified medical reasons but cannot guarantee any refund in advance.

e.        If I withdraw from the program voluntarily, I will be required to pay all non-refundable and non-recoverable costs. If I withdraw on the program start date or thereafter for a non-medical reason (see above) or am removed for disciplinary reasons, I will be required to pay all program and administrative costs.

f.       The program costs pay for the program as a whole. I cannot be refunded any part of it that I miss while preparing for or participating on the program.

g.      In addition to the program fee, I am required to pay Ohio University tuition and fees for the six semester hour associated with this program.

h.      If I do not meet payment deadlines, a hold will be placed on my records and I will be prevented from graduating, registering for future semesters, and/or securing an official transcript until the amount is paid in full along with any other charges that may occur in the meantime; Ohio University may report this delinquency to a credit bureau; and my account may be placed at a collection firm and/or litigation may be pursued if my entire indebtedness is not paid by the indicated deadline, in which case I will pay all collection firm fees, attorney's fees, and other costs and charges associated with the collection of my debt.

3.       Program Pre-departure Obligations I understand that if I fail to comply with the program pre-departure obligations described in paragraphs 3a and 3b, I may be removed from the program. If removed, I will remain responsible for paying the administrative fee, program deposit and any non-recoverable costs.

a.       Academic Performance I understand that I must be in good academic standing to participate in the program. I further understand that I must maintain program-specific cumulative GPA and/or other pre-requisites.

b.       Judicial/Criminal Penalties I understand judicial sanctions resulting from violation of the student code of conduct may impact my eligibility for program participation.

4.       Permission to Share Information. I give Ohio University and its representatives permission to communicate internally and with my parents and/or other emergency contact person specified by me regarding all issues surrounding my program experience. This may include but is not limited to student account information, student conduct issues, health and safety, grades or academics; such contact may occur before, during or after the program.

5.       Photo Release. I give Ohio University and its representatives permission to make use of photographs bearing my image in both print- and web-based program materials for educational, non-commercial promotion.

6.       General Release and Waiver. I release Ohio University and its staff from any liability for damage or loss of property, injury, illness or death during the period of the program, arising on the part of fellow participants, host family members, agencies and education organizations, persons, or groups with which Ohio University contracts for the provision of services for the program, or which have been suggested by program faculty as resources for regional or independent study projects.

I understand that all Ohio University Policies and Procedures are subject to change, and it is my responsibility to be informed of all University policies pertaining to students enrolled at Ohio University.  I hereby acknowledge that I have read, fully understood, and agree to the policies as stated above.
