Can my $300 program deposit be deferred until my financial aid is disbursed?
No. The Spanish Studies deposit confirms your enrollment in Spanish Studies Abroad. If we do not receive a deposit, we cannot hold a space for you in our programs.
My financial aid will not be available by the payment due date, can my payment be deferred?
Yes. Please contact Spanish Studies Abroad as soon as possible to obtain the appropriate paperwork and instructions to defer your payment.
What forms of payment does Spanish Studies accept?
Spanish Studies Abroad accepts payments via check, money order, and/or credit or debit card. To make a credit or debit card payment, please visit the View/Pay Bill stage of your online account, or you may complete and return a Credit Card Authorization Form.
To whom should I make a check/money order payable to?
All checks and money orders should be made payable to "The Center for Cross-Cultural Study" or "CC-CS."
How do I know whom to pay for my study abroad program?
You will be able to access your billing statement in the View/Pay Bill stage of the Pre-Departure section of your online account. The billing statement will clearly outline each program fee and the amount. If you do not see an amount due online, or only the deposit appears, please contact your school to coordinate payment.
What is the Spanish Studies Abroad Refund Policy?
Penalties for withdrawal from the program are assessed based upon the length of time between the notice of your withdrawal and the start of the program. In any case, the $300 deposit is always non-refundable.
Withdrawal from program between:
Final payment due date and 30 days prior to the start of the program has a penalty of $500.
29 days prior to the start of the program and 1 day before the start of the program has a penalty of 25% of the room and board fee and 100% of the tuition, study tours and orientation, enrollment, and general education fees.
There is no refund for any portion of the program on or after the program start date.
I have my own health insurance, so do I have to pay for Spanish Studies Abroad’s health insurance?
Yes. Spanish Studies provides health insurance for all students as part of your program fees. This health insurance is mandatory for all students, whether you have insurance at home or not. Students must also obtain an ISIC (International Student ID Card), which provides you with additional health insurance. Please see Health Insurance and Medical Care for more detailed information.
