If you cancel before your course start date, the following schedule applies for your tuition payments:
60+ DAYS PRIOR
All tuition/fees paid are refundable less a $100 application-processing fee per person per individual course.
30-59 DAYS PRIOR
All tuition/fees paid are refundable less the $200 or $500 deposit per person per individual course. Deposits are transferable to another course within one year of the cancelled course start date.
LESS THAN 30 DAYS PRIOR
All tuition/fees paid are non-refundable but are transferable to another course within one year of the cancelled course start date.
Outward Bound Costa Rica reserves the right to cancel any scheduled course up to 31 days prior to the course starting date. This is uncommon and due to low participation or certain programming factors. This decision would be announced no less than 30 days prior to the course starting date and participants would be advised either via telephone or email. In this case, participants would be allowed to apply their tuition towards any other Outward Bound Costa Rica course within one calendar year or receive a full refund minus a 3% processing fee. Outward Bound Costa Rica is not responsible for reimbursing any pre-arranged travel costs.
MEDICAL WITHDRAWAL POLICY
Students with a legitimate medical condition that prohibits them from attending an upcoming course will have the choice of rolling over any payments to a course within the next year, or receive a full refund. A refund can only be processed upon receipt of a signed doctor’s note detailing the condition.
EXPULSION & VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL POLICY
While some Outward Bound schools specialize in at risk or seriously troubled youth, Outward Bound Costa Rica does not. Our instructors are trained and well-qualified wilderness instructors. We provide structured courses and strive to teach valuable life lessons resulting in personal and professional growth for our participants. We reserve the right to remove participants who present a danger to themselves, the environment, other participants on course and our instructors, or those participants who violate our Student Code of Conduct. Participants who are expelled from the course or voluntarily leave the course for personal reasons do not receive a refund and are responsible for evacuation fees.
