We strongly recommend travel insurance, especially for overseas trips. Insurance protects your overall investment if you are forced to cancel your registration. It protects you in many situations, including lost luggage or illness. Many independent agencies offer travel insurance, as do travel providers.

Transfers of registration to another student are permitted when requested at least 30 days prior to the start of the course. A fee of 10% of the registration total will be charged and must be completed prior to the registration transfer.
Transfers to a future course will not be permitted unless the eligibility requirements above are met.
Transfer requests must be sent via e-mail to email@example.com E-mails must be received by midnight US Pacific Time (PT) (GMT-7) to be processed on that day.
What if the course can’t be held?
