Payment, Cancellation, and Refund Policy

Payment, Cancellation, and Refund Policy

If there are any questions about payments, please email our Accounting department (accounting@ieimedia.com).

Study Abroad programs require extensive, detailed advance planning. Because commitments for hotels, cooperating agencies and organizations are frequently done months in advance of the trip, it is essential that students be aware of their financial commitments when signing up for a program. The refund policy as outlined below will be strictly adhered to in order to ensure consistency and fairness.

  • If you decide to withdraw from a program, you must notify our Admissions office (admissions@ieimedia.com) and your program director immediately in writing.
  • If you withdraw before March 15, ieiMedia will refund all but the $500 deposit and $50 application fee.
  • If you withdraw between March 15 and April 1, ieiMedia will refund 50% of your payments after the deposit and application fee are subtracted.
  • If you withdraw after April 1, none of the fees will be refunded, but you may defer admission for one year at an additional charge.
  • If you require a visa and the visa application is denied, ieiMedia will refund the entire program fee upon receiving proof of visa denial, prior to March 15.
  • If a medically certified illness prevents your participation, the student will forfeit the application fee plus any payments made on behalf of the student that are non-recoverable. No refunds can be made after May 1, but you may defer admission for one year.
