Full Refund Program

You are encouraged to sign up for the full refund program.  This is an additional cost, however, it protects your investment.  Life happens.  As much as we want every student to travel on their planned trip, unexpected difficulties can pop up that can make it necessary to change your plans.  Add trip protection when you register for your child's trip, and you'll get a full refund of all funds you've paid to WorldStrides.*  This is optional, but we strongly recommend you elect this coverage.  It'll give you peace of mind.

 

*Less and non-refundable deposit, fees, and the Full Refund Program Cost.

How it works…

  1. Sign up for your trip.
  2. Travel on your WorldStrides adventure.
  3. Complete your coursework online.
  4. Receive your transcript!

Discovery for Credit is a fun way to reflect on your experience and learning during the travel program.  And, getting starting is easy!

Students register for Discovery for Credit online through their student MyTrip account.  You can register before, during, or even after you travel.  Students traveling on a non-science based international program,

please call 800-468-5899 or email discovery@worldstrides.org  for academic credit information.

 

Once you are registered, you can select the course(s) that are of most interest to you—and most relevant to your particular travel program.

 

After you travel, you’ll work at your own pace within your six-month window to complete all online coursework.  Our instructors will provide feedback on your work as you go.  You’ll engage in activities that offer options for video responses, opportunities to use photos from your experience, and that invite you to participate in discussion with your peers.

 

Once you’ve completed both the travel program and the online portion successfully, you’ll receive an official transcript from WorldStrides or our university level partner.

 

Your official transcript will be sent directly to your home address and you can choose how you’ll use it.  Transcripts stand and may be submitted alongside your traditional high school transcript as a form of distinction in your academic profile during the college/university application process.

 

You may also present your transcript to your high school registrar for consideration toward inclusion on your high school transcript.  Acceptance is always determined at the discretion of the receiving institution.  You can contact the Worldstrides Curriculum and Academics Team for supporting documents via discovery@worldstrides.org
