TERMS AND CONDITIONS (PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT)
Please read each policy carefully.
Please confirm that you agree to the conditions of participation.
Program Participation: I agree to fully participate in all portions of the program as set out in the course information and by program staff and, if applicable, my volunteer/intern supervisors. I understand that I must fully participate in and complete every aspect of my program to receive credit.
Health and Safety Policy: I understand that all Diversity Global program participants agree to abide by a set of non‐negotiable agreements that are in place to ensure student health and well being, including:
I will not use illegal drugs or consume excessive amounts of alcohol.
I will not compromise my or another participant’s physical and/or emotional safety.
I will do my best not to behave in a manner that is offensive to local cultural norms.
Refund Policy: All deposits (or installments of your total program cost) are generally non‐refundable, as outlined in our Refund Policy document. I understand that if I withdraw from the program, I will, at most (in the case of documentable catastrophic emergencies), be refunded only the recoverable, non‐committed expenses (e.g. room/board not already paid for), if available and at the discretion of Diversity Global.
Flight/Transportation Policy: Diversity Global will make international flight and host country airport transportation arrangements when indicated; however, in the case of a missed flight, I understand that I am responsible for my own transportation to and/or from the host country at my own expense. In addition, I understand that I will not be eligible for a refund of any program costs due to missing my flight.
Insurance: I certify that I have health insurance that covers me while in the host (foreign) country and continues past the dates of my program. I understand that I will be responsible for the payment of any health care treatment that I receive during the program. I will also be responsible for any expenses not covered by my insurance.
Personal Health and Wellness: I understand that I take 100% responsibility for my physical and emotional health during my program. I state that I am free of medical conditions that would endanger the life, health, or wellbeing of others and myself while traveling or living abroad. I agree to fully disclose to my Diversity Global advisor (before departure and while on program) all physical, emotional, cognitive, and sensory conditions or disorders that would potentially impact me or another program participants. I hereby grant Diversity Global and its partners full authority to take whatever action they may consider warranted in order to protect my personal well-being, health, and safety.
Expulsion Policy: I understand that upon the decision of the program faculty and the Managing Director of Diversity Global, my participation in the program will be terminated if I engage in actions that endanger myself or others or jeopardize the success of the program overall. I further agree that if asked to leave the program I will be responsible for all expenses incurred in returning to my point of origin. In the event of such expulsion I further agree that no refund of program fees will be granted, and I run the risk of not receiving academic credit.
