All students are responsible for their own safety when traveling nationally or internationally, whether or not their travel is funded by the School of Divinity or given course credit by the School of Divinity. Before departure and in order to remain enrolled in any course associated with the travel, students traveling with the School of Divinity are required to do the following:

  1. Pay all course fees by the deadline specified in the course syllabus;
  2. Complete all travel forms and follow all procedures required by the University through the Center for Global Programs and Studies;
  3. Attend all briefing sessions required or provided by the Center for Global Programs and Studies.

Students who fail to meet these requirements may be dropped from the course. Information about University travel procedures is available through the University Center for International Studies (studyabroad.wfu.edu).

Each year, the School of Divinity may make funds available for travel scholarships. Students are eligible for one travel scholarship, which is applied to the first Cross-Cultural Connections course taken. If additional travel grants become available, priority goes to students who need to fulfill the Cross-Cultural Connections requirement.

Regular drop policies apply to travel courses. However, the School of Divinity cannot guarantee any refund of program fees should a student withdraw from the course, though the school will try to provide refunds on a pro rata basis when possible.
