A $250 per person, non-refundable deposit must accompany your registration form. Externship candidates must add an additional $75 processing fee. A second payment of $500 is due on March 1, 2014. Registrations received after February 28, 2014 are contingent upon space availability and must include both the deposit and second payment (total of $750) to reserve space. The balance in full is due and payable no later than April 15, 2014. Due to the non-refundable nature of our accommodations arrangements and host institution’s policies, cancellation between April 1 and May 1, 2014 will incur a $500 per person penalty. If cancellation occurs after May 1, there is a 100 percent penalty. The penalty may be waived if a qualified substitute is found to fill the vacancy. Acceptance is on a first-paid, first-reserved basis and subject to space limitations. If your registration is not accepted, the full deposit will be returned.

A completed and signed Registration form, Assumption of Risk and Release form, Emergency Contact Information form, Health Information form, a legible copy of your current passport, and the $250 per person deposit must be submitted to enroll in the program. Seats are filled on a first-paid, first-reserved basis. All required forms are available (combined into one PDF writable document) at the left under "Quick Links."
