Once admitted to the program we will apply $200 out of your application fee to the final payment for the program. The remaining $20 will cover our electronic fees for servicing applicants' payments. The final payment is usually requested within 1 to 4 weeks after initial acceptance to the program. The final payments are usually submitted by check or money order and payable to Global Education Leadership. Please do not apply to the program if you cannot afford it.
In case of the withdrawal more than two weeks before the start of the program all collected fees except $220 nonrefundable application fee is returned to the applicant.
In case of the withdrawal less than two weeks before the start of the program 50% of collected fees, in addition to $220 nonrefundable application fee, are kept by GEL and the remaining amount is returned to the applicant.
In case of the withdrawal after the program started no refund is possible.
GEL encourages its participants to purchase an insurance plan in case of the withdrawal from the program. A recommend plan is Patriot T.R. I.P. that allows to receive back non-refundable and other payments in case the travel is cancelled or cut short for various reasons. To learn more check the Patriot T.R.I.P. website.OK
The payment of $220 shows to us your seriousness and commitment to the program as you invest your time and money in submitting your application documents. In the past, we spent time reviewing application documents, corresponded with an applicant and conducted internship or study abroad placement together with our academic partners only to learn that an applicant decided to withdraw from the program. The modest nonrefundable application fee of $220 ensures that you are genuinely committed to the program and our work on your application is a worthwhile undertaking for all concerned, including you.
The application fee covers administrative and organizational costs connected with reviewing and processing your application documents, initiating your internship placement, our contact with an academic institution at which you would like to undertake your studies and reserves a place for you on the program.
Only after the application fee is received will your application be reviewed.
Once you are admitted by a host institution we will apply $200 out of $220 towards the final payment for your study abroad or internship program. Please make sure to review carefully the total costs of the program you applied for that are specified on the GEL pages. The final payment is usually requested within 1 to 4 weeks after initial acceptance to the program. Final payments are submitted by check or money order and payable to Global Education Leadership.
