Cancellation and Refund Policy

All cancellations must be made in writing (e-mail is acceptable). We will send you a confirmation of your cancellation by e-mail.

If a cancellation is made more than 14 days before the program all fees are refundable, except for the $300 non-refundable deposit.

If a cancellation is made less than 14 days before the program starts, the refund is contingent on the program selected, less the $300 non-refundable deposit. It all depends on what we paid in advance and if we can recover those costs. Our staff will do our best to refund you as much as possible, but we cannot guarantee that you will receive a full refund.

If you are preliminarily accepted into one of our programs, but not accepted into the university of your choice, we will refund you 50% of your deposit ($150).

After the program starts, if you need to return home due to illness or other justified reasons, it might be possible to refund some of the fees, depending on the time frame and the payments that have been made to our partners. However, if you decide to return home for “personal reasons,” or homesickness, without any justifiable reason, we will not consider any sort of refund.  Study Abroad Compass will not refund participants for unused housing, excursions, or other services included in the program fee.

We strongly encourage our students to purchase trip cancellation insurance before paying the program fee, in order to cover these expenses related to the unforeseen circumstances that may lead you to cancel your trip. A good plan is called Patriot T.R.I.P. This plan allows you to recover non-refundable, unused payments and deposits when a trip is cancelled or interrupted for a variety of reasons. For more information see the Patriot T.R.I.P. website.
