Cancellation Policy

If it is necessary to cancel your registration, a $50 fee will be withheld from your refund before May 29, 2017.  To obtain a refund, please submit a completed W-9 for the district or individual who paid for the registration.  Once our office receives the W-9, the refund will be processed. 

No refunds will be given after the early registration deadline (May 29, 2017, at 5 p.m.).

Substitutions from the same school district, with a completed registration form, will be allowed up to five business days prior to the start of the Institute. If you request a substitution after the registration deadline (5 p.m. on May 29) and your sub will be enrolling in a different course, a $50 rush fee will be assessed, as different course materials will need to be ordered (same as a late registrant).

Classes are subject to cancellation due to insufficient enrollment, and full refunds will be given in these rare cases.


Late Registration Policy

Those who register after the registration deadline of 5 p.m. on May 30, 2017, will be assessed an additional $50 rush processing fee to cover the costs for rush shipping, late printed materials and additional supplies.
