OUR REFUND POLICY
Parent & Family Programs strives to provide a special experience for our students and family members participating in our programs. To ensure the quality of programming offered during Family Weekend, we DO NOT offer any refunds. We encourage you to make sure your family members can attend Family Weekend and double check the items in your cart before registering.
NOTE: Family Weekend is similar to a conference and allows families to choose what events they want to attend, so it will take you approximately 20-25 minutes to register your family, add events to your cart, order t-shirts, list dietary restrictions, etc.
