All students will be charged an additional $300 security deposit when invoiced for full program costs. This security deposit is distinct from the above program deposit. Security deposits are intended to cover lost keys, room damages and any additional charges accrued on program. Security deposits, minus charges, will be returned after completion of the program and when Summerfuel has received a full accounting from the business offices of its host institutions, usually by the start of October.
