- A full refund is issued if a program or special event is cancelled by SEASPAR.
- In order for a participant to drop from a program or special event, SEASPAR must be notified five business days prior to the start of the program or special event to qualify for a refund. At this time, the participant will be refunded the cost of the program less a $5 processing fee, the cost of a ticket (if applicable, unless a participant on the waiting list registers), contracted services, or specialized non-refundable supplies.
- A prorated refund is issued if a written medical excuse accompanies the refund request.

- All refunds are issued monthly.
Fee Assistance Program
The SEASPAR Board and staff are committed to offering programs at the lowest possible cost. However, due to financial restrictions, some individuals may find it difficult to pay the entire fee. To help those in need, a significant amount of funds are made available for participants through the generosity of donors. Each year, community organizations and individuals contribute funds that are earmarked for fee assistance. We appreciate this support which allows participants to benefit from activities.
Generally, fee assistance is available for up to 50% of the program fee. Any balance due from a previous season must be paid prior to receiving additional fee assistance. Fee assistance is not available for overnight trips or the EAGLES program, and are only available to SEASPAR residents. Arrangements for a payment schedule are also possible to make the payment of fees more feasible.
There are three ways to submit a Fee Assistance Application:
