Gap Year Program Assurance Advantage
PEACE OF MIND FOR YOUR Gap Year ABROAD PLANS
TAKE THE WORRY OUT OF PLANNING FOR STUDY ABROAD
Every one of our fall ’20 and spring '21 programs – no matter what the location – is covered by our Program Assurance Advantage. Should a health, safety, or security concern cause CIEE to cancel or suspend your program on or before your program start date – as a confirmed student you’re fully entitled to the options below. If you choose to cancel your participation to a program that CIEE is running, our normal cancellation and refund policy applies. You can find more details in our FAQ.
CHANGE TO AN EQUIVALENT PROGRAM AT A NEW LOCATIONClick to Open
You can change your enrollment to a different program of the same length that is taught in another location. If you were to choose a different program with a lower tuition cost, CIEE would refund you that cost difference. If you were to choose a program with a higher tuition cost, you would be billed the cost difference but wouldn’t be charged any change or confirmation fees.
DEFER YOUR PROGRAM TO AN EQUIVALENT TERMClick to Open
You can defer your participation in the program to a subsequent term.
GET UP TO $500 IN AIRFARE REFUNDS FOR FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS OR CHANGESClick to Open
CIEE strongly discourages students from purchasing airfare until they are advised to do so by CIEE. In the event that you have purchased airfare, CIEE will provide reimbursement for up to $500 in flight change fees and/or cancellation fees not refunded to you by your airline that result from having to alter an existing ticket due to your CIEE Gap Year Abroad program being cancelled.
