Under: “Tuition Policy”
Cost: $5,200 plus Travel Fees (estimated $1,500 - $2,500)
Your total school fees are recommended to be paid upon arrival. We want you to be able to focus on being a student, not fundraising for your school fees! However, if for some reason you cannot pay your school fees upon arrival, we have a set payment plan:
We require a refundable $500 deposit to reserve your spot in the school and confirm your arrival which will be due at least 30 days before your school start date. For example, if your school starts on March 28, we would expect your deposit to be paid by February 28.
*If you are an international student, we understand it may be difficult to pay online, therefore your $500 deposit is due upon arrival.
Starting Week 1: at least $550 dollars will be due every Monday.
At Week 5: Lecture Phase should be paid off in full totaling $3200
Week 6: Plane tickets must be reserved totaling $500 towards Outreach Fees. If you do not reach this deadline, we cannot purchase your plane ticket.
At Week 11: Outreach Phase should be paid off in full, totaling $2000 plus travel expenses (these are subject to change depending on outreach location).
Please note you will need additional funds for personal transportation costs, laundry, insurance, medical expenses (i.e. vaccinations), toiletries, etc.
If for any reason it becomes necessary for a student to cancel, resign, and/or be asked to withdraw after the start of the school, the following refund schedule will take effect.
If the student withdraws or does not attend the school the $500 deposit is refundable up to 30 days after withdrawal/no show. After 30 days of notification of withdrawal or no show this is non refundable.
Any money due prior to cancellation will still be required. For example: if the student cancels during week 1 and still has not paid any tuition, the student still owes 10% of the total tuition, during week 2, 25% and so on.
Due to costs the school incurs for each student there will be no refund after week 8. These amounts go towards your room and food costs for the time you spent on this campus.
Week 1 90%
Week 2 75%
Week 3 40%
Week 4 30%
Week 5 25%
Week 6 20%
Week 7 15%
Week 8 10%
These guidelines are non-negotiable. These costs are the minimum requirements and without them YWAM Salem cannot pay the costs (food and boarding) to have each student on campus. Please speak to your school staff if you are unable to meet these requirements.
