Refund and Cancellation Policy

Program tuition and fees are not refundable after the program enrollment deadline; however, in the case of a documented emergency including significant illness, incapacitation, or death of the student or immediate family before the start date of the program, tuition will be refunded less a $1000 cancellation fee. After the program start date, no refund will be given as most funds are already committed to in-country expenses. If the program is cancelled by Ceiba for any reason prior to the start date, tuition will be refunded in full.
