Apprentice Program online payments
This site provides online payment services for Apprentice Program fees. Application fee payments are processed securely by STRIPE (www.stripe.com) or PAYPAL INC. This service is provided as a convenience to students and guardians to make credit card and electronic transactions an option to transmit payments. Apprentice Program fees received online are strictly non-refundable. A binding ‘click wrap agreement’ is the final step of the payment form. This is a required check box that must be checked manually by the payer before the payment can be processed. The click wrap agreement states in plain english the following terms: “By checking this box I understand and agree that all tuition fee payments are non-refundable unless the OYL Apprentice Program is cancelled by One Year Lease Inc. Tuition fees do not include round-trip airfares to Ioannina (IOA), Greece.” Please read and consider your agreement to this clickwrap agreement carefully before accepting its terms by checking the box and submitting a payment, as the click wrap agreement terms are binding, final and will be strictly enforced.
By submitting a payment online and checking the clickwrap agreement box, you are agreeing that the submitted payment will not be refunded under any circumstances including in cases of withdrawal or cancellation by the student or at the request of their parent/guardian for any reason. It is therefore recommended that any questions or concerns about your participation or that of your child/ward in the Apprentice Program are raised and resolved prior to making an online payment.
In the event OYL cancels the Apprentice Program in any given year, a full refund will be provided to students/guardians.
Cancellation by OYL is the ONLY circumstance under which a refund of an Apprentice Program payment will be provided.
