Summer Program Assurance Advantage
PEACE OF MIND FOR YOUR High School Summer ABROAD PLANS
TAKE THE WORRY OUT OF PLANNING FOR STUDY ABROAD
Every one of our summer’20 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
At no additional cost, 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
At no additional cost, you can defer your participation in the program to next summer.
GET UP TO $500 IN AIRFARE REFUNDS FOR FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS OR CHANGESClick to Open
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 High School Summer Abroad program being cancelled.
RECEIVE A REFUND FOR YOUR CIEE PROGRAM FEESClick to Open
Should a health, safety, or security concern cause CIEE to cancel or suspend your program on or before your program start date, and that you choose to not change or defer your participation to your program, you will be eligible for a full refund of your CIEE Program Tuition Payments.
If you choose to cancel your participation in a program that CIEE is still running, our normal cancellation and refund policy applies. You can find more details in our FAQ.
IF YOU ARE ON PROGRAM DURING PROGRAM SUSPENSIONClick to Open
Our onsite staff will present all available options to complete the academic requirements of your program. In such situation, we will be in direct and constant contact with you and your parents and/or legal guardians.
IF YOU ARE A GLOBAL NAVIGATOR SCHOLARSHIP AWARD RECIPIENTClick to Open
If your program is cancelled, please note 2020 scholarship awards can be transferred to any other program location this summer or deferred to your original program location in summer 2021, as long as you are still in high school during the 2020-2021 school year. If you are currently in senior year and were awarded a “merit only” scholarship, you will be able to transfer that scholarship to any other 2020 program, but won’t be able to defer to next year. No scholarship amounts can be redeemed for cash value.
