Any activities done outside of the structured trip activities are at your own risk.
Insurance – Health insurance is required. I will show proof of personal health insurance.
Payment - Final payment is due no later than thirty days before departure. Failure to pay in full by the deadline will result in a cancellation of my application's acceptance.
Cancellation - The deposit and program fees are not refundable.
Agreeing to the above affirmatively indicates my agreement and understanding of the responsibilities I am undertaking as a trip participant. I also personally assume any risks involved in activities outside of the trip program. Submitting this application indicates that I have carefully read and agree to the above conditions.
I affirm that the information given in this agreement is true and correct to the best of my knowledge. I approve contact with the advisor or faculty member named above.

Upon submission of this form, I understand that I am responsible for all expenses paid on my behalf by Park University, and will repay any such charges if I cancel my trip participation.
