Full tuition payment and full payment of additional course fees are due by 4:30 pm Thursday, April 4, 2019. The deadline to receive 100% refund of tuition and fees (with the exception of the $300 non-refundable deposit) for dropping the course is also 4:30 pm on Thursday, April 4, 2019. Because Regent College will be paying various local expenses for the student in advance, the $1,400 (CAD) additional fee is non-refundable after April 4, but tuition is 50% refundable until Friday, May 3, 2019. No refunds will be granted after May 3, but the course may be dropped without refund until Friday, July 12, 2019. Regent College may be required to cancel this course due to either the political instability of the host country, or to low enrollment. In the event of course cancellation, all tuition and fees (including the registration deposit) will be refunded, but Regent College will not be responsible for any other expense, loss, or damage incurred by the student as a result of such cancellation. Tuition benefits do not apply to this course.
