TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Payments, Shipping, Returns and Cancellations

The Monroe Institute® (TMI) offers secure online transactions.  We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal. 

Please be aware that some Visa and Master Card issuing banks impose a “Foreign Transaction Fee” on credit card transactions processed outside of the U.S. even if the transaction is denominated in U.S. Dollars. This “Foreign Transaction Fee” is an arbitrary fee imposed by the credit card issuing banks, which accrues solely to their benefit. TMI derives absolutely no benefit, monetary or otherwise, from the assessment of these fees.

Personal checks, cashier’s checks and money orders are accepted as long as it is received at least 30 days prior to the program start date. Please print our order form and mail to:

The Monroe Institute
Ordering Department
365 Roberts Mountain Road
Faber, Virginia  22938
 

Note: If you live outside the U.S., your check must be drawn from a U.S. bank in (U.S. Dollars) only. A $25 US dollar returned check fee will be charged for each item returned from a bank.

Program Payment Arrangement

  1. To guarantee your space(s), a $500 USD deposit is required at time of booking. The deposit allows TMI to book your reservation and begin the registration process for your program.
  2. Full payment is due 30 days prior to the program start date. If your final payment is not received by the 30-day deadline, you will be given a grace period of seven (7) days, during which time you will still be allowed to submit the final payment. Failure to submit the final payment within the seven (7) day grace period constitutes a forfeiture of your reservation in the program as well as the full amount of the initial deposit. In addition, you will need to reapply to attend another program in the future.
  3. You are responsible for discretionary travel cancellation insurance, airfare, and optional international mobile services, and travel tax expenses, none of which are covered by your payment to TMI. These recommended items are not available through TMI.

Program Cancellation/Transfer Policy

Due to advance planning requirements by program participants and TMI staff, it is necessary that we administer the following policy:

  • If for any reason you are not accepted in a program, any payments you have submitted will be refunded in full.
  • If you choose to transfer to another program, you may do so one time, with no fee, as long as the transfer is complete more than 14 days before the start of the program. If you transfer within 14 days of the program, a fee of $100 will apply.
  • If you cancel your program 30 days or more before the start of the program, a $100 fee will apply. If you cancel between 29 – 10 days, we will issue a non-refundable credit voucher (less $100 change fee) that can be used towards another program of equal value, within one year of the issue date.
  • If you cancel less than 10 days before a program starts, if you leave a program early for any reason, or if you do not show up, no refund or credit voucher will be given. (Special circumstances? Please contact our Program Coordinator).
  • If you do not attend a program you are registered for, all payments you submitted may not be refunded, unless you have prior approval from the Registration Coordinator.

TMI reserves the right to cancel a program 30 days in advance of the program date if there is not sufficient enrollment or for other major cause. If TMI cancels your program, you will be notified and given the option to transfer monies paid to another program or to receive a full refund of monies paid.
