On the “Application Selection” page that results, click on the cancel button next to the program you need to cancel from, fill out the cancellation form and click “Submit.” (When we receive your web cancellation, you have then officially cancelled from a program and any resulting fees will be assessed.)

No other method of cancellation will be accepted. For assistance you can email or call (801)422-3686.

Our official cancellation policy is the following:

The 1st program payment and $500 of the 2nd program payment are non-refundable. If you cancel after the 3rd payment due date, 100% of the 2nd program payment is non-refundable. If you cancel within one month of the beginning of the program, all program payments are non-refundable. If your program cost includes an airline ticket purchased on your behalf and you cancel the program, you will be assessed the cost of the airline ticket.


Through the ISP Appeals process you request exceptions to the ISP payment policy. The ISP Appeals Committee will review and consider your request. Appeals will only be considered from student participants. The Appeals Committee will not consider appeals from third parties.

Through the ISP Appeals process, ISP students may request consideration for use of emergency funds to cover expenses for extraordinary circumstances. The ISP Appeals process helps ISP administrators make responsible and fair decisions regarding these funds. Appeals can be denied or funded partially or in full. This will depend on the nature of the appeal and how much emergency funding is available.

To make an appeal, please write an e-mail describing your situation and detailing why you believe you qualify for refund money from ISP. Send to The ISP Appeals Committee will review your request as quickly as it can though it may take 6 to 8 weeks.

Thank you for your patience in the appeals process. It is a thoughtful process determining how sacred funds are distributed, looking at each individual situation, and considering student need.
