Refund and Cancellation Policy

 

 
To cancel your participation in a MayX program after you have paid the deposit, notify the Rinker Center for Study Away and International Education in writing; email notification is acceptable. Please note that we cannot process your cancellation if you do not notify the Rinker Center directly, though we encourage you to email the faculty members leading your program out of courtesy. The $500 deposit is non-refundable and non-transferrable.
