Student Contract and Liability Release
Your Student Contract is due to SEA within two weeks of your acceptance, along with your $750 deposit. You may send a check payable to Sea Education Association or you may charge your deposit/payments by contacting our Business Office at 508-444-1933. You may also pay online (a 3% convenience fee applies to tuition/deposit payments). Note carefully the conditions of the contract and keep a copy for your records.
Your participation in the program is contingent upon medical clearance. You must have a complete physical no more than 180 days prior to your program. Please complete the form in a timely fashion. Once we receive it, we may have questions or additional advice for you that should be discussed before the start of your program. It is extremely important to communicate any needs for special accommodations.
Please be clear and forthright when completing your medical form. It is critical that both you and SEA understand any challenges that SEA Semester may pose for you; we can accommodate a wide range of medical conditions with advance information and communication. Be confident that we will work collaboratively with you and your doctor, as necessary, through the medical clearance process. All health issues (physical and mental) must be brought to the attention of SEA, since without full disclosure, a medical officer or doctor may be unable to render vital treatment ashore or at sea.
Please notify us if you have been exposed to a contagious disease, or if any changes in your health occur between the time of your physical exam and the beginning of your program. If you require regular medication, please work with your doctor and insurance company to ensure that you have a 100% redundant supply during your SEA Semester.
Return the medical form, thoroughly completed and signed by you and a licensed physician, to the attention of Student Services.
YOUR MEDICAL RECORD IS DUE TO THE OFFICE OF STUDENT SERVICES NO MORE THAN SIX MONTHS AND NO LESS THAN ONE MONTH PRIOR TO YOUR PROGRAM START DATE.
