Travel Programs

Yale Educational Travel is now Yale Alumni Academy

In 2021, Yale Educational Travel became part of Yale Alumni Academy for broader and more dynamic opportunities to travel and learn with Yale. Alumni can still enjoy high-quality travel programs led by Yale faculty and experts, and the same generous terms and conditions for our trips. Yale Educational Travel credits and policies will be honored on all Yale Alumni Academy travel programs and some credits may be transferable to our online courses and virtual travel programs. Inquire if you're interested in transferring. Throughout 2022 all travel programs offer a 90-day risk-free cancellation policy to support your dreams of travel when it’s safe to do so once again. We look forward to providing you with a wide variety of programs abroad: from the affordable to the luxury experience. Registration is now open!

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.
