Withdrawal Procedures

Students wishing to withdraw from studies at the RIS must:

·         Submit written notification to both their academic department and the RIS Finance Office (Boyar 501/502).

·         Bring a library clearance showing that all books have been returned.

·         Bring a dormitory clearance form showing they have vacated University housing.

·         Return their Student Card and Health Insurance Card (if applicable).

Failure to attend classes does not constitute formal withdrawal, but may result in a failing grade and a refund will not be issued.

Students who withdraw completely from the Hebrew University after receiving financial aid or a MASA grant may be required to return all or part of the aid/grant awarded.

Checkout Procedure

Obtaining Library Clearances

Students must bring their student card to the circulation desk in the Rothberg International School Library (on the first floor of the Boyar Building) to obtain a library clearance. Note that clearances are required even if the student has never used the library facilities.

Vacating Student Housing

All students must vacate housing in the Scopus Student Village by 3:00 p.m. on the date stated in the Check­out Table at the end of each program chapter. Please check the Supervisor's Office hours at other housing complexes (see locations below).

Students must have their rooms inspected, return their keys, and make sure they receive an official clearance from their housing supervisor.

If students need a place to store their belongings until their flight, special arrangements must be made in advance with the madrichim.
