Programs Fees

Immersion Service Learning - Program Fees

Program fees are generally all inclusive,covering airfare, hotels en route, most in country meals and accommodations, in country transportation, and host agency/partner costs. (passport / visa fees, immunizations (if required), transportation to and from Halifax Stanfield International Airport and meals en route are not included)

Participating students have the option to work together on various fundraising projects to help pay for their travel costs. Groups can begin to organize these activities once students confirm their participation in the program. 

A non-refundable deposit  is required to confirm student participation.  The university makes commitments to program partners abroad and must guarantee airline reservations. Student fees are retained to cover expense commitments made on their behalf, for airline tickets, flight insurance, taxes and host partner fees, should a student withdraw from the program.  Please note:  all immersion payments are non-refundable.

Cancellation insurance purchased with ticket reservations covers only airline ticket costs (but not taxes and handling charges) that are refundable if a participant must cancel their participation because of medical problems that arise during the term covered by the insurance. Cancellation insurance does not cover the room and board portion of the experience. This portion is non-refundable.
