Deposits are considered non-refundable. However, cancellations made more than one month prior to the first day of a program will result in a full refund of the deposit or a transfer of the deposit to another program. Cancellations made less than one month prior to the first day of a program will be deemed non-refundable, unless the spot left vacant can be filled, at which point the deposit will then be available for transfer only.
