To receive a refund after registering for orientation, students must withdraw or cancel their registration at least three full business days prior to their scheduled date.

If students meet the three day withdrawal deadline, the refund will be credited to their student account. The money will not be credited directly back to a credit card or bank account.

If a student withdraws or cancels less than three full business days prior to the scheduled orientation date, there is no refund. There are no partial refunds. If a student registers for another day, he or she will need to pay the full registration fee again.
