Terms of Participation

Our services

We provide multi-day education programs that include travel, classroom learning and other activities (each, a “Program” and collectively, our “Programs”) in various Program locations primarily outside of the United States, as more particularly described on our website or in our promotional or other materials.

Application

To apply for participation in a Program, you must complete the full application on our website, and provide us with all of the information required in the application or other information we may request.  

You must be at least 18 years of age to participate on a program.  Application submissions and other information you provide to us must be true and complete.

Acceptance

TGP will determine whether you will be accepted to a Program.  

We will also determine whether to cancel your acceptance or participation in the Program (including after the start of the Program), including, for example, if you fail to timely submit any required forms or information, or to meet any Program requirements, or if you violate the letter or spirit of these Terms and Conditions or otherwise create risk or possible legal exposure for us, or take any action or omission that we reasonably deem inappropriate.  

Our determinations will be made at our sole discretion.  Your enrollment and acceptance are not transferable.

 

PROGRAM FEES

The applicable Program fees are set forth on our website and student portal.  

In addition, other charges and fees that you are required to prepay to us, such as credit card handling fees and costs of educational materials, may display as separate line items on your invoice or payment form if applicable.

We reserve the right to change the Program fee and inclusions for the Program from time to time.  If we increase the Program fee, you may cancel your reservation in the Program, without penalty, and receive a refund of Program fees paid prior to cancelation, if we receive written notice of your irrevocable cancelation within seven (7) days of our announcement of the increase to the Program fee.  Prepaid charges and fees, however, will not be refunded.

PAYMENT TERMS

You may elect to pay the Program fee in full at the time of your acceptance to the Program.

Alternatively, you may elect to pay the Program fee in monthly installments, commencing on the date of your acceptance to the Program and on the same day of each calendar month thereafter.

The Program fee, and any required prepaid charges and fees, must be paid in full not less than six (6) weeks prior to the Program start date. For online courses, an extension can be made for final payments to be due not less than three (3) weeks prior to the Program start date.  If you are using a payment plan, you are responsible for submitting payments on time according to the payment plan schedule.  

Only for participants who have been accepted to a Program prior to January 31, 2021: You may elect to pay the Program fee in 3 installments, as follows: (i) $500.00 was due on the date of your acceptance to the Program, (ii) one-half of the remaining balance will be due not later than four (4) weeks after such date, and (iii) the final payment will be due not less than six (6) weeks prior to the Program start date.

If any payment is not received by its applicable deadline, we may cancel your registration for the Program.  In such an event, you will be entitled to a refund as set forth below. 

You will be liable for all costs and expenses incurred by us in connection with collecting any Program fees, other charges, or enforcing our rights under these Terms and Conditions.

 

CANCELLATION AND REFUNDS

You may cancel your registration in a Program at any time by providing us irrevocable written notice.  Your cancelation will be effective upon our receipt of the notice.

If we receive your cancelation notice, or if we cancel your registration or participation for non-payment or other reason:

  • More than sixty (60) days prior to the Program start date, you will be entitled to a refund of all Program fees paid prior to cancelation less $500.00.

  • Between sixty (60) and thirty (30) days prior to the Program start date, you will be entitled to a 50% refund of all Program fees paid prior to cancelation

  • Less than thirty (30) days prior to the Program start date (including if you do not attend the Program or cancel, or are terminated by us, after the start of a Program) you will NOT be entitled to a refund of any Program fees.

Prepaid charges and fees will not be refunded in any case.

If you wish to change your Program (including if you become unable to attend), you must contact us in writing.  We will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your change request on a case-by-case basis. If you change your program less than sixty (60) days before your original program date, a $250 change fee applies. You have two-weeks from the day of notice to make the change fee or you will forfeit your reservation on the program. If you have already changed programs and are considering cancellation for your new program date, TGP will review your refund on a case-by-case scenario. These refund terms may no longer apply.

 

CREDIT CARD REQUIRED  

As part of your Program registration, you may be required to provide us with valid credit card information and pay the fees and charges described above by such credit card.  We will charge your credit card at the time you register for a Program and, if applicable, for monthly charges when due.  You authorize us to charge your credit card in this manner and for this purpose.

The processing of credit card payments will be handled by a third-party processor.  The processor may have its own terms of service or other agreements to which you must agree before making payment online or may be agreeing by making payment.  You agree that we will have no liability in connection with processing of your credit card payments, including storage or use of information, including your credit card information, you may provide.
 

PROGRAM & ITINERARY CHANGES

We may cancel, in whole or in part, any Program for any reason and at any time as we may deem necessary in our sole discretion.  In such event, our liability will limited to (i) in the case of cancelation of the whole Program, the Program fees paid by you prior to cancelation and (ii) in the case of cancelation of only part of the Program, an amount determined by us in our commercially reasonable discretion of the cost of the part(s) of the Program being canceled.

If TGP determines that the operation of a Program is affected by COVID 19, you will have the option to (i) attend the Learn Now, Travel Later or online version of the Program, (ii) change to another Program at no additional cost, or (iii) receive a credit for a future Program in the amount of the Program fees paid by you prior to our determination that the Program is affected by COVID 19.  TGP provides updates regarding COVID 19 impacts on our Programs on our website.

In the unlikely event that all Programs within a season do not fill up to the minimum capacity, we may consolidate two or more Programs in order to provide a more fulfilling experience for all participants.  In such an event, you will be asked to choose one of the consolidated dates for your Program.

We will make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Program operates as advertised.  However, circumstances may arise that require changes or exceptions in certain aspects of the itinerary due to, among other things, adverse weather conditions, changes by vendors or other third party service providers, or other unforeseen circumstances.  Under such circumstances, we may make modifications or substitute conveyances, hotels, excursions, and educational visits as we may deem necessary in our sole discretion.  In addition, all programs, activities, excursions, and itineraries provided during the Program are subject to change at our discretion or the discretion of the in-country Program operators.  You will not be entitled to a refund of any Program fees or other charges in the event of any changes.

 

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS, INSURANCE, AND OTHER MATTERS

Program participation will require you to purchase non-refundable airline tickets and travel medical insurance.  This is your responsibility and is separate from the Program fee.

Valid government-issued photo identification is required at time of check-in for all flights. A valid passport is required for travel internationally. Many countries require that a visitor’s passport be valid for up to six months beyond the date of return from the respective country. You are responsible for contacting the consulate of the Program location, as applicable, for requirements and necessary documentation (such as visas) for entry into such country.

Beginning December 2021, all traveling TGP participants will be required to provide proof of full COVID vaccination a minimum of 14 days prior to the program start date in order to participate. 

For the latest information on travel requirements, log on to the consulate website of the Program location. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you may have different entry requirements than U.S. citizens and it is your responsibility to be informed and ensure that all your travel documents are compliant with the laws and regulations in the applicable locations prior to attending the Program. 

Travel medical insurance is compulsory for all our Programs. We require that, at a minimum, you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation throughout your travels. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. When traveling on a trip, you will not be permitted to join the group until evidence of medical insurance and the insurance company's 24-hour emergency contact number has been provided to us. 

If you have credit card insurance, we will require details of the participating insurer/underwriter, the level of coverage, policy number and emergency contact number rather than the bank's name and credit card details. Please contact your bank for these details prior to arriving in-country. Participants have had positive experiences using World Nomads. If you book your flight through StudentUniverse, you'll have the option to include insurance.

It is your responsibility to check the accuracy of your travel documents. You are responsible to ensure that your first and last name provided to us on your application and at the time of registration are exactly as they appear on your valid passport and all information submitted is correct and true. We are not liable for any travel related errors or additional costs associated. If you do not submit your travel documents, student roster, waivers, and/or flight information on your student portal by the given deadlines, you may not participate in the Program or receive academic credit or credentials to access parts of the Program.

Due to possible changes to Programs and schedules, it is important to contact us prior to booking your flight reservations to the Program location. Please email your personal representative with us before you book your flight reservations to ensure that the Program you selected has not been rescheduled or consolidated.

We act only as an agent for hotels, car rental companies, transfer companies, sightseeing companies and other service providers, including any that may be identified on your ticket, other travel documents or your itinerary. We are not responsible for acts or omissions of these suppliers or their failure to provide services or adhere to their own schedules. We have no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, any refund, personal injury, property damage (including damaged baggage), or other loss (including lost baggage), accident, delay, inconvenience, or irregularity which may be caused by (i) any defaults, wrongful or negligent acts, or omissions of any such suppliers, (ii) any defect in or failure of any vehicle, craft, equipment or instrumentality owned, operated, or otherwise used or provided by a supplier, (iii) any circumstance beyond our control, such as force majeure, including but not limited to, acts of God, pandemic, war or terrorism, or (iv) any act or omission of any person or entity other than our employees.

We have no special knowledge regarding the financial condition of our suppliers, unsafe conditions, health hazards, weather hazards, or climate extremes at locations to which you may travel. For information concerning possible dangers at Program locations, we recommend contacting the Travel Warnings Section of the U.S. State Department at (202) 647-5225 or www.travel.state.gov. For medical information, we recommend contacting the Centers for Disease Control at (877) FYI-TRIP or wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/. You assume full and complete responsibility for checking and verifying any and all passport, visa, vaccination or other entry requirements of your Program locations, and all conditions regarding health, safety, security, political stability, and labor or civil unrest at such Program locations. You hereby release us from all claims arising out of anything covered by this section.

Certain Programs may provide students with exposure to governmental or restricted access places.  The Japan Program, for example, includes visits to Japan's Atomic Energy Agency and Fukushima Daiichi or Daini Nuclear Power Plant.  Students may be required to obtain clearances or sign confidentiality or other agreements as a condition to entry to such places and, therefore, student compliance with any such requirements is a condition to participation in the applicable Program.   We will assist with making these requirements available to the student.  However, compliance is the student’s responsibility, and if the student does not complete and satisfy all such third party requirements, then the student may not attend the Program. 

We will make commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate special requests and dietary needs.  However, we will not be responsible for the failure of carriers, hotels, or other suppliers or third party service providers to accommodate such requests.

Any disability requiring special attention must be reported to us at the time you make your reservation. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate any special needs due to a disability of which you notify us.  However, we are not responsible for failure to provide any such accommodation, including the denial of services by carriers, hotels, or other suppliers or third party service providers. We are not responsible for providing individual assistance for walking, dining, embarking/disembarking transportation, and/or for other personal needs, and you acknowledge and agree that a qualified companion must accompany you if you require such assistance and such companions will be subject to separate program fees for the Program.
 

UNIVERSITY REQUIREMENTS

Students must adhere to all university partners’ guidelines and deadlines for enrollment and paperwork submission at your home institution and abroad.  Our host universities will not retroactively accept students or issue transcripts if students are not signed up by the deadlines given. If participants choose not to enroll before the Program, they will not be able to receive transcripts, may not have WiFi credentials at the university, or be able to participate on the program. If a student does not receive instructions before the Program, it is the student's responsibility to check their spam folders and contact us for information if needed.
