If you must withdraw from your WRFI course, please let us know immediately and in writing. The following policies exist to encourage commitment when applying for a WRFI course, as well as to cover the costs incurred by WRFI when a student withdraws from a course for any reason.
Students who withdraw 60 days prior to the course start date will receive a refund of 85% of tuition paid.
Refunds will not be issued:
Although we rarely need to do so, we reserve the right to cancel or postpone a course, or change a course’s location or duration. If we cancel or postpone a course, WRFI will either offer enrollment on another course, or provide a refund of all tuition paid. WRFI is not responsible for additional, associated costs in these cases. If a course is significantly shortened due to conditions within WRFI’s control, WRFI will attempt to provide an equivalent experience to complete the academic work. If that is not possible, we will either offer enrollment on another WRFI course, or negotiate partial tuition refunds.
We strongly encourage students to purchase travel insurance prior to their course, which may cover a broad variety of expenses, including illness, injury, family emergency, etc. One option is World Nomads, which has provided travel insurance for many WRFI course participants over the years. However, World Nomads is just one of many available options, and we encourage students to talk to an insurance agent to assess their insurance needs. Be sure to read the details to understand what claims the policy will cover in response to COVID-19.
