"Our child definitely gained confidence and independence at a time when they really needed both. We have no doubt that our money was well spent at EXPLO."
Eric G., Parent, EXPLO 360 at Wellesley
"The fact that they can take every experience - in the classroom, in their dorms, even at the cafeteria table - and implement those experiences in the real world... you simply can't put a price on that. EXPLO can be expensive for our family. But we have walked away saying 'this was well worth it'. Every. Single. Time."
Sally Jo L., Parent, EXPLO 360 at Wheaton
Deposits are refundable until March 1, 2017, at which point they become non-refundable.
In order for a student to be enrolled, their application must include a deposit. Application deposits are not required for scholarship candidates.
Deposits are credited to the student’s final balance.
Credit cards are our preferred payment type for online deposits.
A credit card deposit will expedite our ability to process your application. If you pay your deposit via check or bank wire, we will not be able to process your application until we have received payment.
Final payments must be received in full by May 1, 2017 for all students, regardless of which session they will attend. Students applying after the final balance due date of May 1, 2017 must pay the entire bill immediately after acceptance. Students enrolling after June 1, 2017 must pay by certified check, wire, or credit card.
In the event that space is not available at a program, families will be notified in writing that the student has been placed on a waitlist and EXPLO will hold the deposit. If space does not become available for the student, or if the family wishes to be removed from the waitlist, EXPLO will return the deposit in full.
Any returned checks will result in a charge of $20.
Deposits are refundable until March 1, 2017. After that date, deposits are non-refundable.
Between May 1, 2017 and the program’s start date, a full or partial refund of tuition (minus the deposit) will be considered only if the student can be replaced.
Every student enrolled in EXPLO 360, EXPLO Focus, or EXPLO English is automatically covered by tuition refund insurance administered by A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. and underwritten by the member companies of OneBeacon Insurance Group. This plan does not provide coverage for any event or circumstances prior to the first day of the program session. The insurance may cover students once they have arrived at the program and provides for a partial refund of tuition based on the number of days left in a session should a student leave before the end of the session. The only refunds that will be made are those that are covered under the terms of this insurance policy. Click here for conditions and terms of the policy.
Please note that this tuition insurance plan does not cover students for their enrollment in our 1-week EXPLO Mini programs.
Final payments can be made via check, wire, or debit/credit card. Families wishing to make final payments via wire or debit/credit card may do so, but will incur a processing fee from the third party administrators EXPLO uses to process these forms of payment.
Checks must be drawn on U.S. Banks in U.S. funds. We will not accept checks drawn on a foreign bank.
Make checks payable to Exploration School. Include the name of the student and program they are attending on the check (e.g. Jane Smith, EXPLO at Yale).
