In addition, Commencement Week will not accommodate any guests or someone who has been a previous participant on the trip. All students are also required to sign the Commencement Week Waiver/Release electronically upon making the initial $200 deposit.

Fees for Commencement Week are non-refundable. Students will not be refunded any money if they cancel or if their participation is restricted by Bentley for violations of university policies.
