 Changes in course offerings

From time to time, it has been necessary to change the course offerings in our summer programs. If this happens or there are other significant changes to a program in which you are enrolled, we will give you a chance to withdraw from the program and receive a refund of any deposit, tuition or housing fee you have paid. This happens rarely.

Cancellations and refunds

We have never canceled a summer program, but if we must because of limited enrollment or travel or other safety concerns, we will advise you by e-mail or telephone, and we will fully refund your deposit and tuition, as well as any housing fees, you have paid.

If we must cancel a program, we will use our best efforts to make arrangements for each student enrolled to attend a similar program, if the student desires.
