Trip refund not in the offing

Did you know that if your register for a cultural study tour with Colorado Mountain College, and for some reason that tour is postponed for a year, you are not entitled to a full refund?

Did you know that your personal choice to not attend a postponed trip is scrutinized and criticized?

Did you know that signing a waiver for a 2003 trip still limits CMC’s liability for a 2004 trip?

It’s true. I signed up for a 2003 trip to China/Tibet through CMC and it was postponed to 2004. CMC requested payment of $4,500 up front and doesn’t consider my personal right of not wanting to go in 2004 as reason enough to refund my money. I received less than half of that amount, but I believe the college has acted unethically.

I think the public should be aware of the actions of CMC and be very careful about signing up for any courses – read the very, very, fine print
