Deposits

There is a $425 registration fee (not included in the cost of the program) which must be submitted at the time of application through our online registration system. Upon acceptance to any program, we require an additional payment of $1,000 USD to secure a seat on the program. If this payment is not paid within two weeks of acceptance, NCSY reserves the right to re-assign the seat to another applicant.  Please note – the $1,000 payment is a portion of the overall program cost and does not represent an additional expense.

Withdrawals, Refunds & Cancellations

Many of the expenses that NCSY pays in advance to our vendors are non-refundable. Therefore, we have developed the following refund schedule to help us cover some of those non-refundable expenses should you choose to cancel from the program.

Upon cancellation, please notify our office by phone or email immediately. However, refunds are processed solely upon receipt of WRITTEN NOTIFICATION to NCSY. To accomplish this, you may send us an email (using the email address we have for you on file) with your official notice of cancellation.

If your written cancellation is received on or before:

  • February 28, 2018 – payments are refundable less $100
  • April 15, 2018 – payments are refundable less $1,400
  • June 1, 2018 – payments are refundable less 50% of total tuition cost (Registration fee is no longer refundable)
  • After June 1st payments are no longer refundable.

Flight Arrangements & Luggage

Transportation for the program is via group flights.  Airline tickets are not transferable and may not be exchangeable for reservations at any other date.  All flight deviation fees are the responsibility of parents of program participants.  NCSY is not responsible for the cancellation or schedule change of any flights nor any fees connected with their cancellation, schedule change or lost baggage.  In all cases of lost or damaged luggage, program participants must deal directly with the airline.  After acceptance to the program, information regarding recommended travel insurance will be sent to participants.

Program Capacity Procedure

Please note: When a program is filled to capacity and all participants are fully committed, we will notify everyone enrolled in that program notifying them that tuition payments are no longer refundable (even if the program sells out before June 1st).
