If I want to cancel my registration, can I get a refund?

Once you register, we start planning for you!  As a result, we commit the funds to vendors and associated expenses.  That means we are only able to offer refunds for the ticketed events through a specified date (please check back for more information for Family Weekend 2015).  Unfortunately we are not able to offer a refund for the registration fee.  To request a refund, please email Meghan Fisher at  A refund should appear on your credit card statement within 6-8 weeks.

What does the administrative fee cover?
Your registration fee helps cover many of the administrative costs associated with the event including staff for the event, Faculty Concert, sibling activities, mini-classes, campus movie, and Coffee with the President.
