Coming Soon: Vote for 2024 Travel Programs

As we look forward to planning 2024 travel programs, we want to hear from you! Where do you want to go; what do you want to learn? This fall we'll invite you to vote for the travel destinations you're dreaming of visiting. Come back in October to review the ideas suggested by our faculty, scholars and travel partners. Toward the end of the year, once your votes are in, we'll announce our 2024 programs.

COVID-19 Risk Free Travel Policy

The safety of our participants is of the utmost importance to Yale Alumni Academy. Our risk-free booking policy allows you to book with the confidence that you can withdraw from the program should conditions be unfavorable for travel. Unless otherwise listed in the trip’s terms and conditions, any new registrations booked after December 1, 2020, may be changed or canceled up to 90 days prior to departure and will receive a full credit or full refund of all deposits. For new cash deposits, a full-cash refund will be offered, for registrations made with credit vouchers, full-credit will be offered. Final payments for all programs are not due until 90 days prior to departure.

Yale Alumni Academy follows the stringent COVID-19 safety protocols established by the University. We therefore re-evaluate the viability of a program at 90 days prior to departure to determine whether it still meets Yale's safety standards. At that point, the University will confirm whether group travel will be possible based on the conditions surrounding international travel and the status of the destination. At that point, we will also notify all registered participants whether Yale will remain an official sponsor of the travel program, and whether the study leader has received final approval to participate. Unless otherwise listed in the trip’s terms and conditions, at the 90-day point, all travelers will have the option to withdraw from a program with no penalty.
