2.2 Deposit Fees
A deposit fee of $500 must be paid at the time of application/registration.
2.3 Refund Policy
Once an application is reviewed and accepted, an administrative cancellation fee of $100 will be imposed for any cancellation from the program. Cancellations received after the DS-2019 issuance are subject to a $300 visa processing cancellation fee. The visa processing cancellation fee is inclusive of the $100 administrative cancellation fee. In any case that a student is refused a visa, only the $100 administrative cancellation fee will be charged. An exception to the cancellation fees applies if a 3-month period has expired and a training position has not been secured for a placement assistance program applicant. In this case, HORIZON will refund the entire deposit upon written request.
2.4 SEVIS Activation Policy
Once the Form DS-2019 is issued by Horizon student exchange, HORIZON must be notified about the arrival schedule of the trainee within 30 days of the date the Form DS-2019 was printed. If the arrival schedule is not confirmed within 30 days of the date the Form DS-2019 was printed, the SEVIS record will be canceled, the Trainee will be canceled from the program and the $300 visa processing cancellation fee will be applied.

A fee of $200 will be charged for any such form that must be replaced or reissued due to information incorrectly entered on the application and/or not verified correctly by the agent or participant.

If a participant requests from HORIZON a change in host companies during the program, a $200 relocation fee will be charged.
