In order to participate in the WAVU program, all students must have up-to-date welcome paperwork on file. Vanderbilt University requires completion of new paperwork each academic year even if you have completed it in the past.
WAVU 2019-2020 Welcome paperwork will be available after students have been admitted to the program.
Inclement Weather Plan
Weather cancellations are unfortunate for all involved, but the safety of our students and families is top priority. Should it be in the best interest of our students and families that we delay or cancel our program due to inclement weather, we will issue a timely statement to our participants via email and also on our website. If a program cancellation is announced, tuition paid may be applied to a future program of the family’s choosing, or if preferred, a tuition reimbursement may be issued. If, however, the program commences as planned, we are unable to offer a refund to individual students who do not attend. As is our policy, the $35 application fee is nonrefundable. No matter the official program decision, it is always most important that each family make the safest travel decisions in regard to their own situation and program attendance.
