Payment Policies

Students are responsible for any and all required payments and charges applicable to the travel seminar program fee. Students will pay the travel seminar program fee separate from their CSP Student Account. If a student doesn’t pay the travel seminar program cost, then the fees will be put onto the student’s account.  

Deposit

The trip deposit of $500 is non-refundable.

Cancellation

The CALL Study Abroad Center reserves space on the program for the participant upon receipt of the $500 deposit. At this point, the CALL Study Abroad Center incurs certain non-recoverable costs. Therefore any participant who cancels at any time after the deposit deadline passes will be responsible for non-recoverable costs. 

  • All cancellations must be submitted in writing to the faculty trip leader and to abroad@csp.edu. 
  • Financial Aid and Student Accounts will bill a student’s account for the non-recoverable costs if student chooses not to pay them directly to the cashier or online through the travel seminar payment site. 
  • Students are responsible for non-recoverable costs according to the cancellation period and amount listed below: 
Cancellation Period Amount Due
