Seminar/Lab Payment Policies

To reserve a place at a seminar or lab please register and pay the fees in advance. Advance registration enables us to present the best event possible. We will send e-mail confirmation when we receive your payment. Same day registrations will be accepted as space allows.

Discount policy: Any discounts (“early-bird” registration) are available until announced discount deadline, 2 weeks before the seminar or lab, after which full seminar prices apply to all registrants.

Refund policy: 

  • If the CMI organization cancels a seminar/lab, the full fee will be refunded. If a seminar/lab is cancelled due to inclement weather and a student is unable to attend on the make-up date, the full fee may be transferred to another seminar/lab. 
  • If a student withdraws more than 15 days before the seminar/lab, the full fee, less a $25 administrative fee, will be refunded or transferred to another seminar/lab held during the same academic year (September – August).
  • If a student withdraws within 15 days of a seminar/lab, the full fee, less a $25 administrative fee, may be transferred to another seminar/lab held during the same academic year (September – August). If a student misses a seminar/lab without notifying the CMI organization before the event commences, no refunds or credits will be given.
  • If the student misses part of a seminar/lab, no partial refunds will be given.
  • Partial attendance at seminars is strongly discouraged. 
  • Students with special needs may petition the CMITI administration for exceptions to this policy.
