22 to 45 days prior to departure 50% of the program fees plus $300

This cancellation penalty policy is necessary because the booking of overseas facilities requires substantial non-refundable payments and commitments from CAPA in advance of the program start date. All notifications of withdrawal must be made in writing and sent to CAPA The Global Education Network. Students requiring CAS numbers for Tier 4 visa applications on the London program to participate in internships or service learning will include a $500 cancellation penalty for withdrawal from the program, or just the internship component between issuing of the CAS and 61 days prior to departure. Standard penalties will go into effect after that point.
