Refunds

CCSA reserves the right to withdraw any of its programs due to war, political unrest, terrorism, natural disaster, low enrollment, unforeseen circumstances, or a travel warning issued by the US State Department.

Participants who withdraw or who are involuntarily removed shall remain obligated to pay the balance determined by the Penalty for Withdraw schedule above. Applicants whose participation is involuntarily canceled by CCSA due to the applicant’s failure to remain in good standing or complete required preconditions for participation (such as holding a valid passport, completing visa requirements, or other factors that prohibit participation) shall remain obligated to pay the balance determined by the Penalty for Withdraw schedule above.

If CCSA cancels a course, the applicant will automatically be moved to their alternate course choice and sent a notification. If both the primary and alternate courses are canceled, and an applicant does not elect to participate in another course, the full amount paid to date less the application fee will be refunded if the student confirms the withdrawal within 48 hours after the change. After this time, CCSA follows the Penalty for Withdrawal schedule below.
