I understand that the study abroad programs that NMH offer are very competitive. I have completed the full application and reviewed the program description and understand the financial, physical, emotional, and educational commitments that the study abroad programs have. I understand that if I am accepted into a study abroad program and have submitted the initial deposit ($750.00), the initial deposit and all program fees will be non-refundable should I or my parents/guardians decide to withdraw me from the program, last minute circumstances prohibit or interfere with my participation in the program, or I am required to withdraw or dismissed from school, or due to disciplinary action or a Core Team referral I am removed from a program. I understand that my participation in this study abroad program will be contingent on maintaining academic, behavioral, disciplinary, and financial good standing from the period between acceptance into the program up until the program itself is carried out. I understand that I will also be required to attain medical clearance from the Health Center prior to participation in the program, which includes a requirement for all study abroad students to be immunized according to Massachusetts State recommended immunizations. I understand that there are risks associated with international travel and that additional immunizations may be recommended or required. I have discussed this with my parents/guardians and by signing this document, I indicate that information contained on this form is true and accurate.
