Prior to embarking on your Sea|mester journey, please review the tuition terms and schedule of payments. Space is limited aboard our vessels, therefore it is important to have a firm financial plan in place prior to enrollment.
Application Fee: A non-refundable application fee of $75 is due upon application. Upon review of the application materials by GXG staff (including but not limited to medical history, academic transcript, and references), successful applicants are offered provisional acceptance and the deposit becomes due.
Berthing Deposit: This deposit is $750 if provisional acceptance is offered more than 30 days before the Program’s start date and $2,000 if provisional acceptance is offered within 30 days of the Program’s start date. Once the deposit has been paid, a GXG representative will schedule a phone or video conference interview with the applicant. GXG will typically determine whether it will offer formal acceptance based on this interview. The deposit is non-refundable once GXG offers formal acceptance.
Remaining Tuition Balance: Tuition is due 90 days before the Program’s start date. If enrolling within 90 days of the Program’s start date, the final tuition is due 21 days after the deposit is paid, but no later than 30 days before the Program’s start date. If enrolling within 30 days of the Program’s start date, the final tuition is due upon enrollment. Tuitions are non-refundable after the due date.
Forms of Payment: Tuition payments are accepted by check, ACH, or wire transfer. Credit cards may also be used for tuition payments, but the tuition amounts will be slightly higher, as GXG’s published tuition fees reflect a 3% discount for payment by check, ACH, or wire transfer.
Switching Trips: Once enrolled, any request to switch Programs in the same summer will be considered on a case-by-case basis. GXG does not allow Program switches within 30 days of the Program’s start date.
