What is the cancellation/refund policy?

  • Payment is required prior to entering an Academic Senate event.

  • Please remember that the last day (October 5, 2020 to cancel your registration without penalty) is always posted on each event's webpage, and is listed in each confirmation email. Cancellations must be submitted in writing to events [at] asccc.org on or before the posted date. Registration will not be canceled due to non-payment. All cancellations made after the posted cancellation date will be assessed a $175 cancellation fee.

  • Full Refunds will not be granted for cancellations after the posted cancellation deadline.

  • Cancellations made less than 7 business working days prior (October 29, 2020) to the event will be billed the full registration amount for the conference.

  • No shows, unclaimed "TBA" attendees, and cancellations made after the deadline will be billed to you and/or your college for the total cost of registration and room if applicable to the event.

  • It is your responsibility to ensure payment of the registration fee. Submission of your registration signifies agreement with this policy.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

No, All attendee registrations must match the ticket.  If you would like to transfer your registration, you must cancel the first one, then register the second attendee online.  If a payment transfer needs to be made because payment was made by check, you must contact the Senate Office directly with a written notification at events [at] asccc.org
