Attendance & Refunds

Participants must be on-time for class. If a participant arrives after the course has started, this will result in the failure of the course and they will be unable to make up the course material. Safety classes are non-refundable, however Campus Recreation will authorize a participant to move into another offered class if a) the class has an opening and b) if the request was made at least five business days prior to the original course the individual signed up for. For emergency situations, proper documentation will be required within 48 hours of the cancellation request (e.g. doctor’s note, obituary).
