What do I do if my class is cancelled?

We reserve the right, when necessary, to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. If we must cancel your class, you may request a full refund. We will notify you at least 48 hours in advance if we must cancel a class.

What is the cancellation and refund policy if I am unable to attend?

If you need to cancel your registration and do that at least 3 business days before the start of class, you will receive a full refund minus a 10% processing fee. No refunds will be given for cancellations received after the refund deadline, unless otherwise indicated for special programs.
The S.T.E.M. Summer Camps have a different Cancellation and Refund Policy, shown below.

S.T.E.M. Summer Camp Cancellation and Refund Policy

If I am unable to attend my registered course, can I transfer to another course?

You may transfer a registration from one course to another by notifying the Registration Office at least 10 business days prior to the start of a program. Only one transfer is allowed. The registration may be applied to any other noncredit course University Outreach offers. Should the fee for the replacement course be less than your original selection, we will refund you the difference minus a $25 handling fee.

If your alternative selection has a higher fee, you must pay the difference plus a $25 handling fee. (The handling fee does not apply if you are transferring your registration from a course we canceled to another course that has not yet begun.)

What do I do if I've lost my password?

You can send a request for your password to be sent to your email address on our Lookup Password page.
