Participant Requirements - Change of Status and Program Withdrawal

 

 

All BOSP participants are subject to and will be held accountable for the policies in this section. Please review them carefully.

Accepted

Although you have been admitted to the program and are confirmed, failure to turn in required materials by the Required Materials Deadline, attend the mandatory orientation session and complete mandatory orientation activities will result in your removal from the program. This will enable us to better prepare students for studying abroad, and will ensure fairness to students on the waitlist who have completed all of these items.

Waitlisted

If you are currently waitlisted for any BOSP program (Quarter-length, Consortium or Seminar), know that we will ONLY accept students from the waitlist who have turned in all of their required materials, and who have attended the mandatory orientation meeting regardless of where you might be ranked on the waitlist. Students who fail to do this will be administratively withdrawn from the waitlist. This will enable us to better prepare students for studying abroad, and will ensure fairness to other students on the waitlist who have completed all of these items.

Students on the Waitlist who have completed all of the necessary items above will be accepted into the program as soon as space becomes available, even on very short notice up until it becomes no longer possible to admit you to the program. Please understand that it is impossible for BOSP to predict whether you will be accepted into the program. You may remain on the waitlist for as long as you wish.

If you do not wish to remain on the waitlist, please send an email to bospstatus@lists.stanford.edu, so that we can remove you from the list.
