ACMS does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age, marital status, national and ethnic origin and disability.

Program participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from the program location in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. All participants must be available in Ulaanbaatar to begin the Field School program on Monday July 29, 2019 at 9:00am local time, and must stay with the group until the program ends in Ulaanbaatar at 3:00pm on Friday August 16, 2019. In extremely rare cases, there may be valid academic or personal reasons for a participant to arrive late or request to leave a program before it is completed. Permission for such arrangements can only be granted by the appropriate program director, and only upon receipt of a written request from the participant prior to the start of the program. 6. The ACMS is unable to directly offer program participants academic credit for their participation in the program. Students who wish to receive academic credit for their participation in the program can work with their home or other academic institutions to ensure that the courses taken through the program meet the academic requirements of the institution granting academic credit.

Program participants who withdraw from the program within the 15 days prior to the starting date of the program are responsible to pay the $500 administrative fee and are eligible for a refund of 75% of the tuition fee. Program participants who withdraw or are required to leave the program after the start date of the program are not eligible for a tuition refund. 8.

Students accepting fellowships but who do not participate in the program are required to personally pay any fees owing as outlined in the tuition payment terms and conditions outlined above. 9. Fellowship recipients are responsible for paying all taxes related to their awards. The fellowship funds awarded are generally considered income in most countries, and therefore must be reported to the tax authorities. The ACMS bears no responsibility for withholding or remitting taxes related to these awards. 10. Participants must be at least 18 years of age and are subject to the laws of Mongolia during the field school program. Drug or alcohol abuse, sexual harassment or other behaviors in violation of the law or generally accepted standards of behavior will be viewed as a serious violation of the terms of participation and can result in dismissal from the program.
