RYI Refund Policy

Fall 2022 Policies

Application Fee

The application fee is non-refundable.

Registration & Tuition Fees

Registration and tuition fees are not due until one week prior to the start of a semester. Tuition paid after this date will incur a late fee.

For students who need to withdraw from a course or program after the start of classes, please see the Student Guidebook for more details.

If classes are cancelled on campus due to unforeseen circumstances, we will resume them online.

RYI is not responsible for any additional costs related to a student’s travel and stay in Nepal to attend classes on campus. We suggest that students look into travel insurance given the continued uncertainty around world conditions.
