Program Payment Policy
The application fee to a CFHI Program is $45 and is due at the time your online application is submitted. The $350 deposit, which is applied toward the total cost of your Program, is due within 30 days after acceptance to the Program or 45 days prior to the start of the Program, whichever comes first. All application ($45) and deposit fees ($350) are non-refundable. The final balance of the Program fee is due 45 days prior to the Program start date. If you are accepted into to any Program within 45 days before the start date, all Program fees are due within 72 hours of acceptance, without exception.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
If you cancel your Program for any reason, you must notify CFHI in writing via electronic mail (email firstname.lastname@example.org) with confirmation of receipt. If you cancel after payment of all Program fees but more than 30 days before the scheduled Program start date, you will be refunded the entire final balance amount. If you cancel after you have paid the full Program fees and less than 30 days (but not less than 15 days) before the scheduled Program start date, you may either 1) be charged 50% of the final balance, with the remainder refunded to you; or 2) have your Program fees transferred to another Program within 12 months of the original start date of the Program. If it is 14 days or less before your program start date you may either 1) be charged 80% of the final balance, with the remainder refunded to you; or 2) have your Program fees transferred to another Program within 12 months of the original start date of the Program. In either case, CFHI reserves the right to charge the participant 50% of the Program fees if significant Program costs are incurred to our Program Partners in preparation for your arrival.
Program fees are never transferable to other CFHI Program participants after a Program cancellation.
In the case of a true family or health emergency, documentation of emergency must be provided to CFHI and CFHI will review refund requests on a case-by-case basis.
No portion of the Program fee is refundable after the Program start date. Nor is any portion of the Program fee transferable between services or aspects of the Program or services purchased outside the Program. No refunds will be issued for changed Program itineraries, modifications or other unforeseen events. Furthermore, you are not eligible for refunds based on unused portions of your Program, such as accommodations or language classes, or because of your inability to participate according to the scheduled itinerary.
CFHI reserves the right to expel a participant during a Program, should this be necessary, at its sole discretion. Unused portions of your Program due to expulsion are neither refundable nor transferable to other CFHI Program participants. Please note that CFHI will not be held responsible for any charges made by airlines or other agencies at any time.
