For GO: Prepared, students are accepted into a study plan with understanding that successful completion of the study plan is contingent on satisfactory attendance and attainment of specified grades.

If, however, the results from assessments upon arrival indicate that a student’s level of English or academic proficiency is significantly different than the one claimed and is lower than the one required for their program, then the student will be formally advised of the results and of applicable options. A change in study plan may involve additional time and cost with regard to tuition and accommodation fees.

A student, either individually or through his/her representative, who has submitted any documentation or certification to meet the admissions criteria which is later found to have been falsified is subject to immediate expulsion from the Kings program.

Attendance is compulsory for all students and is a condition of a US student visa. Nonattendance of students holding a Kings I-20 is reported to the Department of Homeland Security.

13. Force Majeure

Kings is not responsible for any events outside our reasonable control which may cause the closure of part or all of the School, housing, or host facilities and the cancellation or modification of any classes, courses or other services or materials Kings provides. Events outside our reasonable control may include, without limitation, war, riot, civil strife, industrial dispute, terrorist activity, state or federal mandate, disaster, storm or other extreme weather conditions, flood, plague and infectious disease. Kings will not be responsible for any costs incurred by or on behalf of the student as a result of any such case. No refunds will be given under this Section 13.

14. Liability

Kings will not be liable under any circumstances for any failure to provide any services whatsoever if that failure is caused directly or indirectly by actions or circumstances beyond Kings’ control. Any damage caused by a student to college property or to a residence, whether intentional or not, will be charged to the student or students responsible. Students in residential accommodation are jointly liable for shared facilities and Kings reserves the right to recover costs for damage and exceptional cleaning at any time.

Students hereby voluntarily release, hold harmless and agree to indemnify Kings, its agents, officers, employees, successors and assigns from any liability resulting from any claims, suits, procedures, costs, expenses, including attorney’s fees, and causes of action of whatever kind or nature, including, but not limited to, a claim of Kings’ negligence, resulting from any damage, loss, personal injury, disability, medical expenses, property damage or theft, arising from or out of the student's attendance or participation in the Kings program.

15. Jurisdiction

In any dispute arising out of this contract, the parties expressly agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of the USA having jurisdiction in the matter in question

16. Medical intervention

The student or guardian (if under 18) grants authorization and consent to Kings and UWO to administer general first aid treatment for any minor injuries or illnesses experienced by the student. If the injury or illness is life threatening or in need of emergency treatment, Kings is authorized to summon any and all professional emergency personnel to attend, transport, and treat the student and to issue consent for any X-ray, anesthetic, blood transfusion, medication, or other medical diagnosis, treatment, or hospital care deemed advisable by, and to be rendered under the general supervision of, any licensed physician, surgeon, dentist, hospital, or other medical professional or institution duly licensed to practice in the state in which such treatment is to occur. The student or guardian agrees to assume financial responsibility for all expenses of such care. Once medical/hospital treatment is completed, the student may be released back to Kings. The student or guardian (if under 18) agrees to allow Kings and UWO-Fox Cities to contact and speak with the student's physician/dentist.
If you feel contrary to this, please advise us in writing, so that we may keep a copy of this in the student's file and we therefore act accordingly. Students will be required to provide medical history documentation prior to arrival in the US.

17. Activities and excursions

It is understood that students may participate in off-site social activities and excursions organized by Kings, UWO, and/or external providers.
If your child is under 18, a guardian's permission is understood to be given for them to participate. Please advise Kings in writing if permission is not given in order to act accordingly.

18. University Progression

Students must meet the admissions requirements of all host and progression institutions in which they intend to transfer. All host and progression institutions reserve the right to amend their admission criteria independent of Kings and UWO.
