Transfer

Terms & Conditions

GENERAL REFUND POLICY

In this policy, the word “program” refers to the full cycle of studies to which the student registered. Extensions of studies will be treated separately.

To be considered for a refund, a student or agent can submit a completed Cancellation Form or notify the school of the cancellation by some other means.

For any study program changes resulting in a decrease in the number of English lessons per week (e.g. 20 lessons/week to 16 lessons/week) after enrollment has begun, there will be a one-time study program change fee of $110.

For specialized Activity Programs [e.g. Study tours, English Plus, etc.], there are no refunds for homestays, activities, airport transfers, or excursions, but only for tuition that is offered as per the normal Cancellation/Withdrawal policy [see below].

There are no refunds or make‐up classes for classes missed due to holidays, graduation, orientation, natural disasters and/or other situations beyond the school’s control.

If Global Village Hawaii cancels a program that a student registered for, and proficiently placed into, Global Village Hawaii will refund all monies paid by the student. If you came through an agency, Global Village Hawaii will check with your agency for any other fees that they may assess.

If a student is dismissed from school for violating school policies, Global Village Hawaii will refund the student per the normal Cancellation/Withdrawal policy [see below].

It is understood that students who register through travel agents have signed contracts with these agents that may include cancellation penalties, no‐refund policies, or home country refunds only conditions. In all cases regarding agent-sent students, Global Village Hawaii will confirm the conditions of agent-student contracts with travel agents before issuing any refunds.

Textbook fees will not be refunded once the books have been issued to the student. If a student has the same edition of textbook(s) from previous studies, the student may request a refund for the new textbook(s). The request must be made within the first week of studies. No refunds will be given beyond this period.

Cancellation/Withdrawal of Enrollment before the student’s program start date or never attended class (no show):

Global Village Hawaii will refund all monies paid less the non-refundable fees: registration fee, accommodation placement fees, any actual housing costs incurred (including deposits) by Global Village Hawaii, express mail fees, and SEVIS related fees. However, if a student cancels within 72 hours of submitting the registration, Global Village Hawaii will refund ALL monies paid less non-refundable accommodation deposits, express mail fees and SEVIS related fees, if applicable. An amount not to exceed $500 in identified non-refundable charges, may be charged in the event of a student’s cancellation. All refunds will be made within 45 calendar days of the first scheduled day of class or the date of cancellation, whichever is earlier.

Students Denied Visa/Entry: A student denied a student visa or entry into the United States will be given a full refund of all monies paid less non-refundable accommodation deposits, any actual housing costs incurred by Global Village Hawaii, express mail fees and SEVIS related fees, if applicable. An amount not to exceed $500 in identified non-refundable charges may be charged.

Cancellation/ Withdrawal of Enrollment after the student’s start program date:

For all cancellations, students can notify Global Village Hawaii by completing a Cancellation Form or notifying the school of the cancellation by some other means. If a student does not notify the school that he/she is withdrawing, Global Village Hawaii will check attendance records and if the student has been absent for more than 10 consecutive class sessions, the student will be dismissed from school and the student’s I‐20 Form will be terminated. Global Village Hawaii will calculate the student’s refund (if applicable) based on the last day of attendance. Any money to be refunded will be mailed to the students’ home address or to their travel agent.

No refunds will be given for the first 4 weeks of the student’s study program.

For students who cancel/withdraw after the first 4 weeks but before or at the midpoint of the student’s study program, Global Village Hawaii may retain a prorated amount of tuition and other fees. For students who withdraw after the midpoint, Global Village Hawaii may retain all of the charges for the student’s study program.

Prorated refunds will be calculated on a weekly basis. When determining the number of weeks, Global Village Hawaii defines a partial week as if a whole week were completed, provided the student was present at least one day during the scheduled week.

Students who cancel/withdraw after completing the initial study program, but before or at the midpoint of any subsequent study program, GV Hawaii may retain a prorated amount of tuition and other fees up to the midpoint. For students who cancel/withdraw after the midpoint of any subsequent study program, GV Hawaii may retain all of the charges for that study program.

Refunds due students may not be applied toward future tuition fees.

Students who cancel/withdraw before the first 4 weeks or after the midpoint of the student’s study program due to a death of an immediate family member (spouse, parent, grandparent, child, brother, sister, mother-in-law, father-in-law, or legal guardian), Global Village Hawaii will refund 50% of the student’s unused tuition and refundable fees upon receiving official documentation of the immediate family member’s death.

 

ACCOMMODATION REFUND POLICIES

Homestay:

Cancellation/Withdrawal before beginning of homestay:

All money will be refunded except for the non-refundable Accommodation Placement Fee and an Additional Placement Fee may be charged, if applicable.

Cancellation/Withdrawal after beginning of homestay:

The student should inform the Global Village Hawaii Accommodations Office in writing three weeks before the end of the homestay period if he/she decides to terminate the agreed homestay period. For cancellations made less than three weeks in advance, Global Village Hawaii may retain up to a maximum of 3 weeks of the homestay fee as a non-refundable fee.

If the host family has failed to meet homestay conditions, then the Accommodations Office must be notified and given a chance to mediate and/or correct the problem(s). Only after the school’s intervention, and if the problem(s) persist(s), the student will be moved to another homestay and there will be no refund given for the period of homestay already used. Only if no replacement homestay can be found will an accommodation refund be issued.

GVH Residences:

There are no refunds for the Kaimuki and Kapiolani residence rent, Accommodation Placement Fee, and other related fees once the room is confirmed for the student.

Apartments/Dormitories:

There are no refunds for apartment and dormitory security deposits if the student cancels their accommodation bookings before arrival.

If written cancellation notice is given 30 days or more before the beginning of apartment check‐in, all money will be refunded except for a $35 apartment cancellation fee and the Accommodation Placement Fee.

If written cancellation notice is given less than 30 days before the beginning of apartment check‐in, Global Village Hawaii may retain any rent, security deposits, Accommodation Placement Fee and a $35 apartment cancellation fee.

Airport Transfers:

Cancellation/Change before the date of the transfer:

If written cancellation/change notice is given 2 weeks or more before the date of the arrival or departure transfer, the transfer fee will be refunded.

If written cancellation/change notice is given less than 2 weeks before the date of the arrival or departure transfer, there will be no refund given for the transfer fee.
