Program Fee Policy
Note: Weatherhead Affiliate Partners (corporate and nonprofit subscribers) follow a different set of policies than those described on this page. If your employer is an Affiliate Partner, contact your coordinator to register. If you are unsure if your organization is an Affiliate Partner, or do not know who your coordinator is, call 216.368.6413 or 800.736.6403.
Payment is due in full two weeks prior to the start date of the program. For registrations received within two weeks of the date of the program, payment is due on the day of the first program.
Accepted payment methods include:
- American Express
Payments may be made on an installment basis. Please call 216.368.6413 or 800.736.6403 to discuss this payment option.
Late Fee Policy
A late fee of 1.5% will be added every 30 days the invoice remains unpaid past the stated due date.
If you are unable to attend a program, we will gladly accept an appropriate substitute participant to take your place up to the day of the program at no extra charge. Exceptions must be made for programs requiring pre-program assessments or assignments that require completion well in advance of the program. These include, but are not limited to, "Coaching for Intentional Development," and "Leading, Developing, and Sustaining High-Impact Teams."
Weatherhead Executive Education will grant a 90% refund for cancellations made five (5) or more business days prior to the start of the program.
There is no refund for cancellations made less than five (5) business days prior to the program - no exceptions will be made.
Participants who have not yet paid their invoice will still be responsible for any and all fees incurred (e.g., late fees, cancellation fees).
If a program is not held for any reason, the University's liability is limited to refund of the program fee.
We will accept one registration transfer to an alternative program offering. There will be no additional fee if the first registration transfer is made more than five (5) business days before the original program start date.
Payment will be applied to the future program at the time of transfer. Any difference in cost between the two programs would also be due at this time.
There is a 10% administrative fee for transfers made less than five (5) business days past the start day of the original program.
We will charge a 10% administration fee for any postponements/transfers made after your free/complimentary registration transfer has been utilized.
Cancelled Programs Policy
Weatherhead Executive Education reserves the right to cancel any program due to weather, “acts of God,” low registration, or for other reasons Weatherhead deems appropriate. If we cancel a program, participants will be eligible for a refund of fees paid to Weatherhead, not in excess of the total registration/program fee.
Discount Code Policy
Participants may utilize advertised certificate discount codes to receive a discount off select certificate prices when registering for the complete certificate and paying by credit card. Please note: discount codes for certificates are invalidated upon the cancellation of any program for which the discount code was applied. This is excepted only when an appropriate substitute class is applied at the time of cancellation. Improperly applied discounts (e.g. non-profit applied incorrectly) or improperly applied discount codes (e.g. code applied for less classes than required) may be invalidated at the sole discretion of CWRU and Weatherhead’s Executive Education department. In all cases where the discount or discount code is invalidated, the discounted amount becomes due immediately.
