The Whittier College Office of International Programs faculty-based committee takes a number of things into account when reviewing applications. Among the many criteria that are considered, here are several that stand out:
Once the committee has made its decisions, applicants will be notified within 10 days via their Poet World Portal account. Paperwork associated with acceptance status will be posted to the Poet World Portal account and will need to be completed according to the deadlines posted.
Once the student makes a commitment to accept a place abroad, withdrawal policies and penalties will be applicable. In the event that the student chooses to withdraw from a program, he or she will be responsible for reimbursing Whittier for any non-refundable deposits and program fees.
