ALL cancellations involve the forfeit of the $500 deposit fee.

If a medical condition necessitates the participant’s withdrawal from the program between May 2 and July 8, 2017, the program will refund the paid balance minus the $500 deposit fee. The medical condition must be documented by a physician as one that prevents participation in the program.

If a medical condition necessitates the participant’s withdrawal from the program while in session, the program will refund housing and dining costs on a pro-rated basis. There will be no refund for course tuition, fees, or the $500 deposit.   

If a participant is dismissed from the program for failure to comply with the stated and published policy, the parent/guardian is responsible for all expenses, including but not limited to airfare and change fees, hotels, and meals. In the case of a dismissal, no refunds will be issued.

Duke Summer College for High School Students and Duke Summer Session reserve the right to cancel any class if the minimum enrollment is not met or for any reason beyond the control of Duke Summer Session.
