Health Insurance

All students are required to be covered in Europe by their own or their family’s accident and health insurance. All members of the group must submit evidence of insurance coverage for their time in Europe upon admission to the program. Also, the program strongly recommends that students purchase tuition and repatriation insurance. Before issuing a visa, the French Consulate may require proof of repatriation insurance.

Refunds

Our hope is that no student needs to leave the program. However, when necessary (voluntarily withdrawal or due to illness or dismissal by Hamilton in France) Hamilton in France follows the refund policy established by the Hamilton College Business Office.

  • Amounts refunded refer to tuition and fees only. The program cannot refund deposits and travel expenses. Students who have purchased a ticket with the group are responsible for contacting the airline about any changes or refunds.
  • Annual students who withdraw after one semester will be billed at the cost for the Hamilton in France fall semester and will pay a supplementary $1500 administrative fee to cover expenses incurred due to their early withdrawal.
  • The date of withdrawal is understood as the date on which the student leaves the program and moves out of the host family's residence.
