A deposit of $500 is required at the time of your enrollment. This is not an additional fee but will apply against the balance of your tuition. The deposit is nonrefundable 72 hours after you have submitted it. If the program does not hit the minimum pre-established enrollment, we will refund the deposit.
For students applying for financial aid, the deposit is 100% refundable if we are unable to come to an agreement with your family on financial aid. If on the other hand the aid package is finalized, the deposit is non-refundable.
Fees for credit card payments will not be refunded.
EARLY WITHDRAWAL REFUND
Following enrollment, a participant’s withdrawal from the program for any reason, including, but not limited to, illness, injury, family engagements, work-related issues, or geopolitical concerns, etc., will be deemed a cancellation. Please understand that there will be no exceptions to our cancellation policy. Per person cancellation fees are based on date of written notice to SSA. SSA will refund on the following basis:
Cancellations within 72 hours of enrollment: Full Refund
Cancellations 72 hours after enrollment to 121 days prior to departure: 100% refund of program tuition, minus the $500 deposit.
Cancellations between 120 days and 91 days prior to departure: 75% refund of program tuition
Cancellations between 90 days and 61 days prior to departure: 50% refund of program tuition
Cancellations 60 days prior to departure or less: No refund
Cancellation by SSA: Full Refund or Credit for future travel
Final tuition payment is due 90 days prior to program departure. If you enroll within 90 days of your program, 100% of tuition is due at the time of enrollment.
If the participant has scheduled their own airfare and if the flight is delayed or if for any reason the participant is prevented from joining the program on the scheduled departure date and time, or if the participant chooses to leave the program early, we will not provide a full or partial refund or credit toward a future program.
We reserve the right to cancel any program due to low enrollment, when a U.S. Department of State Travel Warning is issued for the destination, or for any other reason.
Any participant who returns from a program before the scheduled return date forfeits the tuition and must cover all expenses associated with an early return.
Enrollments received after the registration deadline, for both Custom and Open Enrollment Programs, may be subject to additional tuition fees for airfare, hotel, transportation, administration and other expense increases.
