Program Registration and Cancellation Policy
Other than the exceptions stated below or otherwise authorized by the Assistant Dean of Continuing Education, all registrations for courses and events can only be confirmed upon full payment of program and associated fees. Continuing Education will provide receipts and confirmations, and does not issue letters of invitation - international participants are welcome but are responsible for handling their own visa arrangements. Subsequent cancellations and withdrawals are subject to the following cancellation policy:
If you cancel your registration up to 1 week before an event start date, your fees will be refunded, minus a $15 processing fee. There is no refund for any cancellations made with fewer than five business days notice.
CPE and Field Education Supervisors
CPE and Field Education supervisors receive a 15% discount on continuing education program fees for on-campus events. Meals and lodging are not discounted.
PTS students, faculty, administrators, staff, and visiting scholars and their spouses are welcome to audit most on-campus continuing education programs without program charge on a space-available basis. However, meals, lodging, and any special material fees are not waived or discounted.
Occasionally, there may be events and programs that are not open to complimentary participants due to limited enrollment or certain qualification requirements.
