Go Global fee and withdrawal policy

If you are accepted by a host university for a structured research program, you will be asked to confirm you participation in the program and you will be charged the Go Global fee of $415. The fee will be posted to your SSC account following confirmation of your acceptance. Go Global will contact you with complete information on how to pay the fee.

You will not be able to make payment in-person at Brock Hall (Vancouver), University Centre (Okanagan), the Go Global office or your financial institution. You cannot pay this fee directly through your financial institution’s online banking interface as payments made through this method will only be counted towards your tuition and your Go Global fee will remain unpaid.

You will receive a $93.25 refund if you withdraw from the program in writing to your Go Global Advisor before March 31, 2018. If your notification of acceptance from the host university is after the refund deadline, then you have two weeks from date of acceptance to withdraw and receive a partial refund.
