Enrollment Fees/Deposits

Successful applicants will be required to pay a $350 Program Deposit to secure a placement within 15 days of acceptance. This deposit is nonrefundable and applied 100% towards the Program Fee.

Cancellations

A placement is considered confirmed when an applicant 1) completes a Program Deposit and  2) completes Pre-Departure Paperwork. Once a placement is confirmed, an applicant may cancel their placement within 90 days notice at not additional charge. After 90 days, the applicant is financially responsible for the remaining Program Fee as outlined by the Refund Schedule.
