Cancellations and Refunds

The Office of Continuing Education reserves the right to end registration when the enrollment limit is reached and to cancel, modify or alter content, faculty or location for any course if circumstances indicate such a change is advisable. If the Office of Continuing Education finds it necessary to cancel a course, a full refund will be issued. No travel expenses will be refunded to the registrant in the event of course cancellation or cancellation of any registration.


Full registration refunds are issued if the registrant cancels in writing two weeks prior to a course. Cancellations processed during the two weeks prior to course date will be refunded registration minus a late cancellation fee of $75. No refunds will be issued for cancellations received three days prior to the day of the course or in the event of a no-show. Select courses may have individually specific cancellation fees and polices. These policies will be listed in the print materials (brochures, fliers, etc.) and on the individual course Web page.


A $50 fee will be assessed for all returned payments. Returned payments include returned checks and dishonored credit or debit card payments.
