Cancellation Penalties

Withdrawal Date Cancellation Fees
Cancellation prior to 60 days $300
46 to 60 days prior to departure 25% of the program fee plus $300
22 to 45 days prior to departure 50% of the program fees plus $300
21 days or fewer prior to departure 100% of the program fee

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.


Students will earn credit that will transfer directly back to their home institution.


Student housing in apartment accommodations with shared bedrooms for the duration of the program are included. Student apartments will include a kitchen, bathroom, television, and wireless Internet connection.

What will I be able to do with My Global Education?

CAPA presents a My Global Education Calendar to all students and faculty. The events, reflective sessions, and activities listed are designed around significant academic themes such as Diversity, Social Dynamics, Globalization and Urban Environments. Participation in these activities will give you an intelligent, well rounded, and in depth view of London and the UK.

Some CAPA professors integrate My Global Education activities into their courses and assessment, so that you may have an opportunity to reflect upon, write about and present your experiences. My Global Education is also an excellent way to develop areas of interest that may be extended into an application for the CAPA Record of Achievement.
