I agree to the following understanding, binding upon myself and my parents or guardians, if I am under 21 years of age, and
I, the undersigned (or my guardian if I am a minor) acknowledge that GBC, its employees and agents, my school board, the teachers, counselors, my
local school, the host universities in this country and overseas are not responsible for damages or other liability in connection with the program, or for
events beyond their control such as (without limitations) strikes, war, terrorism, loss or theft of personal belongings, delays, weather, acts of God, or
government regulations and restrictions; or hotels, restaurants, and other suppliers of program services. I agree to release GBC, its agents and
employees, my local school, the teachers, counselors, directors, and host universities overseas from all claims arising out of such events, acts or
I understand that GBC cannot be held responsible for my health, safety and well-being during stay-ahead/behind periods, when I am absent from
supervised activities or if I fail to follow the directions of the directors of the program. If I become ill or incapacitated GBC will assist a student in case of
an emergency. I grant GBC, its personnel or university teachers at their discretion to place me, at my own expense, in a hospital at any point for any
services and treatment, or if no hospital is available, to place me in the hands of a local medical doctor for treatment. GBC and its personnel are further
authorized to fly me back to the United States at my expense (or my parents) for medical treatment, if this is deemed necessary by GBC in consultation
with local medical authorities.
I agree to abide by the Participant's Behavior regulations, and I understand that GBC has full authority to terminate participants in its programs and
reserves the right to enforce group rules and standards of conduct. I understand that my failure or refusal to comply with such rules may entail my termination as a participant and my return home at my own or my parents' expense and that I will have no right to refund of any part of my program fees. I will indemnify GBC, its employees and agents for any financial liability or obligation which I personally incur, or injury, or damage to the person or property of others which I cause, while participating in the Uni Norte program.
Uni Norte is the principal agent and is responsible to participants in making arrangements for all services and accommodations included in the program.
Uni Norte shall not be responsible if airlines, restaurants, ground transportation companies and other suppliers of arrangements fail to provide their service
or accommodations exactly as set forth in the program literature.
Uni Norte may cancel any program or any course at the university for insufficient enrollment or otherwise, and may alter transportation arrangements,
programs, itineraries, and departure dates and/ or substitute airlines and equipment as required. I agree to accept any such changes without liability for
refund, excpept in the case of a complete cancellation. I agree that any film likeness taken of me while participating in the MLSA program and any of my comments or statements may be used in future
materials published by MLSA.
I understand that I am responsible to obtain the required documentation, including passports, visas and health certificates. My failure to do so will not
entitle me to any refund.
