Above fees do not include books (up to $50/session), personal expenses, transportation, or expenses for dependents. The UNCG Facility Fee and Medical Insurance usually increase each year between Summer and Fall. Please contact the institute if you have any questions.

Student Health Insurance: Traveler’s insurance is not the same as health insurance. INTERLINK requires students and their dependents to have health insurance. Travel insurance is designed for people traveling to cover cancellations, personal belongings and only emergency medical treatment, whereas international health insurance is designed to cover inpatient treatment check-ups and continuing treatment of chronic conditions abroad.

Refund policy:
Students can receive a full tuition refund if it is requested before the start of classes. If requested during Week 1 of classes, students can receive a 50% refund. After Week 1, students are not entitled to a refund. Students requesting a refund will be required to fill out the Refund Form. Refunds for students who must withdraw because of illness or emergency will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

On-Campus Housing Deposit Policy:
Students who want to live in the on-campus dorms must pay a $100 non-refundable deposit and $75 refundable key deposit three weeks before the first day of orientation (the first class date). If the student does not pay this deposit, they will not be eligible for on-campus housing. On the return of the room key, the student will receive their $75 deposit. The student must email to confirm their arrival date and time. We can only move students into the on-campus room Monday – Friday 8:30 AM-4:30 PM.
