CMSE Professional Development Policies
Registration Cancellation Policy
It is the goal of the Professional Development Division within the Center for Mathematics and Science Education (CMSE) at the University of Mississippi to provide high-quality research-based professional training for teachers, administrators, and other school leaders. In order to adequately prepare for professional development events, an accurate accounting of the number of participants must be known within one week of the event. Therefore, any registrant who needs to cancel their registration must do so no later than seven calendar days prior to the event. Registrants who cancel before seven days prior to the event will receive a full refund of registration fees paid in advance. However, Registrants who cancel less than seven days prior to the event will not be eligible for a refund of their registration fee. Likewise, if a purchase order is submitted as payment for registration and a registrant cancels less than seven days prior to the event, an invoice will be sent to the originator of the purchase order. It is the responsibility of the registrant to notify the CMSE of his/her ability to attend the event. If a registrant cannot attend, another participant may be named in his/her place with no penalty up to the day of the event. Changes in registration can be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 662-915-6621.
Effective January 1, 2017.
