STEP 3 OTHER INFORMATION AND SIGNATURES Please carefully read the information and policies below and sign to accept the terms and conditions
LETTER OF ENROLLMENT, VISA, AND “PERMESSO DI SOGGIORNO” As soon as we receive confirmation of your enrolment from your university provider we will issue a letter of enrollment. The letter of enrollment should be used to obtain a Student Visa at your nearest Italian Consulate or Embassy. Visa requirements depend on student nationality and the period of study. The student is held responsible for obtaining the study visa. If a visa must be requested, a copy of all documents presented at the Consulate must be brought to Florence. Once in Florence, those documents will be utilized to request a “Permesso di Soggiorno” (permit of stay) from the Immigration Office. Some shorter stays will only require a “Dichiarazione di Presenza” instead of the permesso di soggiorno. In this case, only a passport is necessary. The FUA staff will assist with both requests upon arrival in Florence. Important! The Immigration Office in Florence typically doesn’t allow students to extend their stay without returning home. If you wish to extend your enrollment after arrival you will need to return home and start the Visa process again. Tuition is due in full before the start date of your chosen program. For students enrolling in a 2 or 4 year program, balance is due before the end date of the first/third year of study.
CANCELLATION POLICY For all programs tuition/entire program cost liability is based on the date on which a formal written cancellation request is received by FUA. If a cancellation notice is received: Within 30 days prior to the term start date*, the student will be liable for 30% of tuition/entire program cost. Within a period of 30 days to one (1) week prior to the term start date*, the student will be liable for 50% of tuition/entire program cost. Within one (1) week prior to the term start date* the students will be liable for 100% of tuition/entire program cost. Under no circumstances will a refund be made. Failure to attend does not constitute official cancellation. *A term starts on the arrival date as indicated in the FUA Academic Calendar (please see last page of application form). No refund will be made under any circumstances until the official enrollment letter has been returned to FUA. A student who enrolls for more than one semester and who wishes to withdrawbefore completing the entire duration they applied for will NOT receive a refund of any kind.
INSURANCE All students must be covered by international health insurance for the duration of their stay in Italy. Please check with your home institution as to whether this is included or should be arranged independently.
WAIVER Program involves studying at FUA institution in Italy and may include living with a host family or in an apartment in the host city. Group excursions and social/ cultural activities are routinely offered to participants. Some trips will be overnight and most will involve transportation on a bus and/or train. The Undersigned fully understands that there are certain dangers, hazards, and risks inherent in international travel, the group excursions, and in the activities included in the FUA program and have signed this document in full recognition and appreciation of the dangers of these activities, which dangers include, but are not limited to, physical injuries (minimal, serious, catastrophic) and/or property loss or damage. The Undersigned expressly acknowledges that the participant is not required to participate in this FUA program, but chooses to do so. The Undersigned therefore agrees to assume and take on all responsibilities in any activities associated with the FUA institution’s program in Italy. In consideration of, and in return for, the service, facilities and other assistance provided to participants by the FUA institution, we, along with any of our assignees, heirs, distributees, guardians, and legal representatives release FUA and its Italian institutions from any and all liability, claims and actions that may arise from injury, harm or death to the Undersigned and from loss or damage to the Undersigned’s property in connection with these activities. The Undersigned understands that this release covers liability, claims and actions caused entirely or in part by any acts or failure to act by the FUA institution and/or FUA office, including but not limited to negligence, mistake, or failure to supervise by the FUA institution or any of their employees, agents, or contractors.
CONDUCT/ BEHAVIOR RELEASE I understand that as a student attending an FUA program, I represent my home institution and country and will behave as an ambassador for this institution and country. Therefore, all policies governing behavior as printed in my home institution’s Student Code of Conduct apply to me during my participation in the FUA program, in addition to the Student Code of Conduct for my chosen FUA program. I understand that information regarding any behavior found disruptive or offensive to the FUA program will be released to my home institution’s study abroad office. I understand that FUA must take steps to ensure that no offensive, disruptive or potentially dangerous conduct occurs. Accordingly, FUA reserves the right to dismiss a student from the program on the basis of any observed conduct or behavior which causes concern for the safety and well-being of students or others. The Director and/or Associate Director of FUA shall have the authority to make the final decision on a participant’s dismissal from the program. Misconduct includes actions that violate school regulations or Italian law, or in the judgment of the school and/or FUA officials, jeopardize the welfare of that student, other individuals or the program. It is understood that no refund of tuition, fees or rent will be given if a student is dismissed from the program. Such actions include, but are not limited to, the following: Excessive unauthorized absence from class and/or other organized program activities - The use of threats or physical violence - Violation of Italian laws - Violation of the school or housing regulations - Damage to or destruction of school, residence, or student property - Alcohol or substance abuse - Reckless or dangerous behavior.
TRANSCRIPT RELEASE Transcripts are released approximately 8 weeks after a term ends.

Transcripts will be released once accounts are paid in full.
