Program Cancellation and Refund Policy

The Deposit

The deposit is non-refundable under any circumstances. This is because Career Semester has a limited number of Participants it can accept and has incurred costs planning the Program.

Program or Skills Development Course Cancellation by Career Semester

Career Semester reserves the right to refuse your Program application prior to the payment of the deposit and/or cancel a Program or skills development course for any reason in its sole discretion.

In the event that a Program or skills development course is cancelled by Career Semester at whatever time, Career Semester will notify you as soon as practically possible in writing.

If the cancellation of a course and/or Program was in the reasonable control of Career Semester, we will work with you to refund you the amount that you’ve already paid for the Program, within 40 (forty) working days.

If the cancellation of a course and/or Program was not in Career Semester’s reasonable control, such as governmental restrictions or instances of force majeure, we will work to refund you the amount that you’ve already paid for the Program, less non-recoverable costs and the deposit, within 40 (forty) working days.

You have no further claim against Career Semester for any loss or damage incurred as a result of this cancellation, whether direct, indirect or consequential.

Program Cancellation by the Participant

In the event that you no longer want to attend the Program and let Career Semester know in writing more than 20 (twenty) working days prior to the arrival day of the Course, we will work with you to refund:

  • the Fee amount that has been paid to Career Semester, excluding the deposit, if you furnish Career Semester with valid reasons and legitimate documentation for your withdrawal from the Program, such as severe illness or a death in the family; or
  • the amount you have paid of the Fee, if any, once 30% of the total Fee and the deposit have been deducted, if we do not accept the reason for your cancellation.

In the event that you cancel your attendance 20 (twenty) working days or less prior to the commencement of the Program or during the Program, you will forfeit any amounts paid.

Program Switch

In the event that you elect to switch to a Program that is less expensive than the one you initially enrolled in, Career Semester will refund you the monetary excess, if applicable, between the amount that is already paid, and the new Program Fee, within 40 (forty) days.

Your placement in the Program is unique and you cannot transfer your spot to another person without Career Semester’s express prior written consent.
