Please ensure that our email address is listed on your “safe sender” list to avoid emails being filtered.

STEP 3 Final Payment & Docs

All programs require a passport copy, flight itinerary, and signed contract to be submitted electronically to SPI. After your acceptance, you will receive login credentials to access the ENROLLED STUDENT LOGIN page where you will access orientation contents and submit payments and documents. Payment extensions are available for a fee. If you enroll after the final deadline, your application will be subject to a $200 late fee. Documents are due within two weeks of acceptance.

PAYMENT PLANS & CANCELLATION POLICY

Payment Plans

Standard Payment Plan

After making the initial deposit (counts toward your final balance), you will have the flexibility of making multiple payments or one final payment at your convenience to SPI by the final payment due date. Please make payments online as we accept e-check and credit cards (3% fee for credit card charged). If you enroll near or after the final payment due date, full payment will be charged at enrollment, otherwise you may request a “Deferred Payment Plan” for an additional fee. There is a $40 charge for all returned checks.

Deferred Payment Plan +$200 Fee

Deferred Payment Plan +$200

For students needing more time to make their final payment, SPI charges a $200 fee. All balances must be paid in full no later than 45 days prior to program start date, otherwise the student will be withdrawn from the program and no refund will be given.

Online Enrollment Conditions

> Airfare is NOT refundable by SPI for any reason and is completely separate from all SPI programs.

> Having a valid passport and visa documentation on day of travel, if required, is the responsibility of the student/parent. No refund will be given on account of student not having proper documentation or being denied boarding/entry by an airline or government agency.

> We encourage purchasing additional travel cancellation insurance with a travel insurance provider if you feel you may have to cancel participation in the program for a covered reason. SPI is NOT responsible for the level of coverage or claims process.

Program Change Fee +$500

THIS FEE IS REQUIRED for all students wishing to change programs or sessions AFTER MAY 1. The fee is in place because SPI pays nonrefundable transportation, hotel, and academic deposits on the student’s behalf that we must recover, plus the new costs of making additional arrangements.
