What is the cancellation/refund policy?
Payment is required prior to entering an Academic Senate event.

Please remember that the last day (April 12, 2022) 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@asccc.org on or before the posted date. Registration will not be canceled due to non-payment. 

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

Cancellations made less than 7 business working days prior (May 5th, 2022) 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. As attendees are permitted to register without funds, we have no way of determining cancellation unless specifically told, in writing.

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

Unpaid balances owed to the Academic Senate must be paid off before an attendee can register for a future event.
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@asccc.org
