Note:

Center for Global Education travel seminars require a certain level of emotional and physical stamina. For this reason, our registration form asks you to disclose health-related information that could impact your ability to fully participate. If you have questions whether this kind of seminar is for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Please read our cancellation and refund policy below carefully before registering.


 

Cancellation notices must be received by the Center for Global Education in writing.  Your deposit is non-refundable.  A cancellation notice received up to 75 days before departure will be assessed only the deposit plus any non-recoverable costs (i.e. flight deposits, visa fee, etc.).  A cancellation notice received 61-74 days before departure will be assessed 25% of the total travel seminar cost; a cancellation notice received 31-60 days before departure will be assessed 50% of the total cost.  A cancellation notice received within 30 days of departure will be assessed 100% of the total cost.

In the event that a Travel Warning is issued by the U.S. State Department for a country that will be visited during a program and CGE agrees that it is unsafe to travel there (or the sponsor has an existing written policy against traveling to a country/location with a Travel Warning), then we will try to reroute that program to another country.  If we need to cancel the program, the participants will be refunded any recoverable expenses.

If there is no Travel Warning, but a participant cancels due to fear of a worldwide crisis, then they may be able to transfer their deposit to another program within the same fiscal year (if agreed upon by CGE); however, they would still be responsible for paying any unrecoverable expenses related to the original trip.

All participants are encouraged to purchase trip cancellation or interruption insurance in the event of a personal or family illness or other unforeseen events.
