ICISP Study Abroad Application
Terms of the Program (page 1 of 2)
I, the undersigned, having applied to the ICISP Study Abroad program in _______________________________
for the _______________ semester, 20_____, do covenant and agree as follows:
I release ICISP and the host institution from any liability or damage or loss of property, injury, illness, or death
during the period of the program.
I understand and agree that neither the Illinois Consortium for International Studies and Programs (ICISP), its
agents, officers, or employees, nor any educational institution associated in this endeavor shall assume any
liability for damages or loss of property or for any financial or other obligations incurred by participants either
in the United States or elsewhere.
I further understand and agree that while participating in the Program, I shall be subject to the supervision and
authority of ICISP, its agents, officers and employees, including the sole decision-making responsibility with
respect to any participants whose conduct or academic standing may warrant expulsion or withdrawal from
the Program. I understand that participants are expected to attend classes regularly unless otherwise indicated
by illness or unavoidable circumstances and to conduct themselves in a mature and responsible way as
representatives of their colleges and their country.
I further understand and agree that when I travel independently from travel arrangements and fieldtrips
organized by the host college and/or by ICISP for participants in the Program I do so at my own risk. I assume
responsibility for my own health, safety, and responsibility for all of my luggage and valuables as a result of this
decision. I hold the host college and ICISP harmless for this decision and was advised as to my personal
responsibility for this decision.
I hereby acknowledge and agree that if I should be required to withdraw from the program for failure to
maintain appropriate standards of study or behavior, that my rights to a refund of any program fees may be
limited and that I would no longer have access to any of the facilities of the Program.
I agree that, should there be any dispute concerning my participation in the Program that would require the
adjudication of a court of law, such adjudication will occur in the McLean County Illinois Circuit Court and be
determined by the laws of the State of Illinois.
I represent that I am at least eighteen years of age or, if not, that I have secured below the signature of my
parent or guardian as well as my own. I further represent that my agreement to the provisions herein is wholly
voluntary, and further understand that, prior to signing this agreement, I have the right to consult with any
advisers, counselors, or attorneys of my choice.
I agree that, should any provision or aspect of this agreement be found to be unenforceable, that all remaining
provisions of the agreement will remain in full force and effect.
