Payment Policies and Practices

  • In order for students to be guaranteed a space on the college tour a non-refundable of $375.00 deposit is required and will be prioritized on a first come first served basis. If a partial deposit payment is received the student's space does not become guaranteed until the full deposit payment is received. Full or partial payment of the deposit is non-refundable. Payment methods: Cash, Check, Cashier's Check, Money Order, and Major Credit Cards

  • The organization's requirement is that the entire trip balance of $1,725.00 will be paid in full by the last scheduled group meeting.


Tour Fee and Non-Refundable Deposit:

  • All deposits must be paid in full or within 30 days of registration. The deposit can be accepted in 2 payment of $187.50, upon arrangements. The total cost of the tour is $2,100.00 (subject to change).

  • Once a deposit is paid in full or in partial NO EXCEPTIONS whatsoever will be made to refund a deposit unless it is due to an organizational mishap, including but not limited to: required number of tour participants isn’t met, proceeds collected and/or earned via fundraising tour will not fully cover associated tour expenses, cancellation of the tour as deemed necessary by the organization


Fundraising Proceeds:

  • In order for tour participants and/or family representatives to begin participating in fundraising activities, 50% of the trip deposit must be paid and application must be received along with that payment.

  • If you choose to begin participation in fundraising without completing the requirements associated with the deposit, the earnings from participation will be held in the general fund until deposit requirements have been met. Upon completion of deposit requirements, fundraising earnings will be applied to your account to reduce the remaining balance.

  • If a student generates an overage of proceeds from fundraising, the overage amount will remain in the general fund in support of group activities while on the trip.

  • If a student decides to cancel their reservation on the tour once they have participated in fundraising activities the proceeds will remain in the general fund in support of group activities while on the trip.

Balance Payoff:

  •  Upon complete payment of the deposit Parent/Guardian's must commit to making payments that fits within their budget but are not reliant upon generation of proceeds from fundraising activities.


Required Documents:

  • Please provide a copy of students Picture ID, Birth Certificate, and a copy of Insurance Card(s)
