Professional and Continuing Education reserves the right to cancel, reschedule or combine program events that are below the minimum participant requirement.
Should a cancellation occur, we will contact you about the cancellation or about any alternative program event(s).
Some courses include a $60 non-refundable registration fee. In the event a refund is approved, this $60 fee will not be refunded.
Price changes are not retroactive. If the cost of a course is lowered before the course start date, refunds for the difference will be processed for those already registered. If the cost of a course is lowered after a course ends, participants who previously purchased the course will not be entitled to a refund.
Some courses may include additional fees for re-enrollment or administrative costs. All documents and emails should be read carefully to fully understand these fees.
Self-Paced courses or programs are not eligible for a refund.
Classroom-based and Hybrid courses or programs: You must email the withdrawal request to firstname.lastname@example.org on or prior to twenty-one (21) days before the first day of class. All refund requests submitted after that deadline will be denied. If you enroll in the course or program after that deadline, you will not be eligible to receive a refund. Similarly, if you transfer to a later course/session, you will not be eligible to receive a refund
To receive a 100% refund (minus the non-refundable $60 registration fee(s), if applicable) you must email the withdrawal request to email@example.com on or prior to the second day of class.
To be eligible for a refund, requests must be received no later than 48 hours after the class begins. If you enroll in the course or program after that 48-hour deadline, you will not be eligible for a refund. Similarly, if you transfer to a later course/session, you will not be eligible for a refund.
You must email the request to firstname.lastname@example.org by the cutoff (no later than the end of the second day of the first course).
Certificate Series that are canceled by the cutoff, will receive a 100% refund minus the $60 non-refundable registration fee.
Cancellation of the series after the cutoff will result in a $60 non-refundable registration fee being charged per course. Please see example below.

Transfers are allowed once, only within the same course. i.e.: you may transfer from the Spring offering of a course to the Fall offering of the same course, but may not transfer to a different course or program. You are not eligible for a refund after a transfer has been made.
A $60 transfer fee will be applied when you transfer enroll in the subsequent course. If you do not pay the $60 transfer fee before the first day of the course you transferred into, your enrollment for that course will be canceled.
If you are unable to complete a course the second time and still wish to take it, you must re-enroll at full price.
Transfers are only available until one week before the end of the course. Transfers are not available for self-paced courses.
