In order for students to be guaranteed a space on the college tour a non-refundable of $325.00 deposit is required and will be prioritized on a first come first served basis. If a partial deposit payment is received the student's space does not become guaranteed until full deposit payment is received. Full or partial payment of deposit is non-refundable. Payment methods: Cash, Check, Cashier's Check, Money Order, and Major Credit Cards

The organizations requirement is that the entire trip balance of $1,700.00 will be paid in full by the last scheduled group meeting, December 14, 2013.  Meetings will resume on January 10, 2014

If a student generates an overage of proceeds from fundraising, the overage amount will remain in the general fund in support of group activities while on the trip.
