Waiver and Release Agreement for Faculty-Led Programs
Per UNF international travel policies, in order to participate in a UNF Faculty-Led Study Abroad Program, students must complete all of the following requirements within the time prescribed for the specific program:
The University of North Florida has established an Emergency Reserve Fund (ERF) supported by a portion of the program costs that are charged to each student participating in a UNF Faculty-Led activity abroad. This portion of the program costs is non-refundable.
While the ERF is primarily meant to cover those overseas travel situations in which unforeseen costs affecting the group are incurred due to weather, natural disasters or political situations, the ERF may also help individual students who need to cancel their participation in a study abroad program (either while abroad on the activity, or prior to departure from the U.S.), in the event of any of the following:
For more information, or to submit a claim, please contact the UNF International Center.
If you have a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and may require an accommodation or auxiliary aid(s) for the study abroad experience, please contact and register with the UNF Student Accessibility Services office (located in COEHS, Building 57/1500; phone (904) 620-2769; email email@example.com).
Military and veteran students who may need physical and/or academic accommodations should contact the Director for Military and Veterans Resource Center (located in COEHS, Building 57/2700) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org; calling (904) 620-5131 or visiting the MVRC website.
Please note that foreign countries do not have to comply with the public access requirements of the ADA and there may be physical or other barriers that impair equal access to medical care, lodgings, restaurants, businesses and other buildings, services or facilities in foreign locales. Students with disabilities are strongly encouraged to research the access and service limitations of the locales to be visited. Further, prior to applying to the study abroad program, the student should meet with the Faculty Leader to ascertain whether the student will be able to participate in all activities of the study abroad program, or can participate in alternate activities to meet program objectives.
