A $250 per person, non-refundable deposit must accompany your registration form. Externship candidates must add an additional $500 processing fee. A second payment of $500 is due on March 15, 2019. Registrations received after February 28, 2019 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 30, 2019. Due to the non-refundable nature of our accommodations arrangements and host institution’s policies, cancellation between April 1 and May 1, 2019 will incur a $500 per person penalty. If cancellation occurs after May 1, there is a 100 percent penalty. Externship candidates must include an additional $500 for placement qualification. 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.
