Additional Info

Deposits

A $500 seat deposit is due no later than 14 days after receipt of your AICASA acceptance letter. A $750 housing deposit is due no later than 45 days prior to the start of classes. If your acceptance date falls within that 45-day window, BOTH deposits are due immediately. Please be aware that both deposits are applied to overall student charges. If a student is granted a deferral, both deposits will be moved to the appropriate semester of matriculation. 

Health Insurance

All AICASA students are required to have health insurance while actively enrolled. AICASA provides students access to a limited benefit injury and sickness plan.  Semi-annual premiums are $1,100 (effective August 2022).

Students are not required to purchase AICASA-offered health insurance and may choose to opt-out in favor of Outside Coverage. Outside Coverage is defined as a policy purchased separately, by the student, transacted directly with the student’s insurance carrier, not AICASA.

Students choosing to opt-out of AICASA-provided health insurance in favor of Outside Coverage must submit a Proof of Insurance Evaluation form in order to be approved for an insurance waiver (Download here).  Scanned copies of insurance ID cards are NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE as proof of Outside Coverage. 

The Proof of Insurance Evaluation form calls for students to affirm minimum benefits as specified on the form. Students should contact their carrier to confirm the minimum benefits. Proof of Insurance Evaluation forms should be submitted within 15 days from the day classes begin. 

Important: Students in attendance in Antigua who opt-out of university-provided accident/sickness coverage will be required to purchase repatriation/medical evacuation coverage through the university and our insurance provider. The annual premium is $125 ($62.50 per semester) with no exceptions and no pro-rating.

Housing & Housing Damages Deposit

New students are required to live in student housing for one semester and must pay a $1,000 Housing Damages Deposit (HDD). Both rent and HDD are due prior to the start of classes along with all other charges for tuition and fees per due dates specified on student tuition billing statements. The HDD will be held until the 1-semester housing obligation is met. At the end of the lease, after the student has moved out and the apartment has been inspected and appropriate damages or replacement charges have been posted, the HDD will be credited back to the student’s account.

Refund Policy

All refunds will be made within thirty (30) days of the withdrawal date. Before any refund can be initiated, a withdrawal form (click here to download a blank form) must be completed and submitted to the Associate Registrar in Antigua. If a withdrawal form is not completed, the withdrawal will be calculated from the last day a student attended classes. Tuition will be refunded according to the following schedule:

  1. Prior to the first day of class, 100% of tuition will be refunded.
  2. Official withdrawal after the start of classes – Prorated credit adjustment for tuition based on the percentage of time not attended after the official date of withdrawal. There will be no tuition credits after 60% or more of the semester has passed. If any student withdraws during the first 59% of the semester, the refund will be prorated based on the withdrawal date. Only base tuition will be prorated. All other applicable fees are nonrefundable.
