Terms & Conditions

  1. Prospective students who wish to enroll at a participating university member (“University Member”) of the International University Alliance (“IUA”) should read these terms and conditions carefully prior to submitting an application. If you are admitted to a University Member you will be bound by these terms and conditions for the duration of your tenure at such university. In addition to these terms and conditions, you will also be bound by the rules and regulations governing the University Member at which you enroll, as those may be amended from time to time.
  2. The IUA and each University Member reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions from time to time. By accepting these terms and conditions you acknowledge and agree to comply at all times with the then-current terms and conditions, found at: iua.org/terms-and-conditions
  3. Admission. If you are admitted to a University Member, you will receive a written offer letter with details and instructions on accepting the offer, paying a deposit, and arriving on campus. The IUA does not guarantee admission to the University Member of your choice; you are not guaranteed admission into a particular school, program, or major within a University Member if you are admitted.
  4. Tuition and Fees Payment. Following payment of your deposit, you must pay any remaining tuition and fee amounts due as indicated on your invoice from the University Member in a timely manner. You are responsible for paying the full invoice amount, including any banking and processing fees.
  5. Failure to Pay. Failure to pay by the due date indicated on your University Member invoice may lead to penalties, including late fees, inability to gain access to campus housing and use of a meal plan, and a hold on your account that will prevent you from enrolling in classes. Pursuant to section 16 of these terms and conditions, the IUA or University Member may be required to report you to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) if you are unable to enroll due to nonpayment of tuition and fees and you may lose immigration status.
  6. Refunds. You must abide by the refund policy of the University Member at which you enroll.
  7. Withdrawal. If you wish to withdraw from the University Member at which you enroll, please see your University Member’s withdrawal and cancellation policy for information on refunds, transfer, and obtaining transcripts. Cancellations made after your arrival to the U.S. on a university-issued Form I-20 will be governed under your university’s standard immigration policies.

Airport Transfers. Airport transfers from the airport to your campus may be available at some University Members. If airport transfers are offered at your University Member, you must request this service at least two weeks in advance. IUA cannot guarantee a reservation for a request made less than two weeks in advance. Airport transfers are available for your initial arrival on campus for flights arriving at select airports.
