Refunds and Cancellations

Refund Policy

If you must cancel your registration, please notify the Continuing Dental Education Department as soon as you determine you are unable to attend. Full refunds of tuition less a 10% processing fee will be provided for cancellations up to 7 business days prior to a lecture course and 21 business days prior to a participation or limited attendance course. For cancellations made after that time, the attendee may choose to apply the entire tuition to a future course. Tuition for no-shows will be forfeited. Select courses may have individually specific cancellation fees and policies. These policies will be listed in the print materials (brochures, flyers, etc.) and on the individual course Web page.

UAB CDE will assess a $50 fee for all returned payments. Returned payments include returned checks and dishonored credit or debit card payments.

Presentation and Cancellation of Courses

UAB Continuing Dental Education reserves the right to cancel any course, limit enrollment, modify the announced course content, or change the location, time, date, and faculty of any course as may be deemed necessary or advisable. We encourage you to register early. This will enable us to protect course enrollment and avoid an unnecessary cancellation of a course. In the event that the School of Dentistry feels it is necessary to cancel a program, a full refund of the tuition will be granted. Attempts to contact all registrants will be made at the time cancellation is determined. UAB Continuing Dental Education Programs cannot be responsible for the refund of any part of the tuition, costs of travel, or lodging as a result of unforeseen circumstances or events beyond its control.
