Important Notice: Sessions with fewer than 12 registrants may be cancelled.
Important Notice: Due to the preparatory costs instigated by each participant's registration, registrants who fail to attend their chosen session are still obligated to pay the registration fee. Those who fail to attend the initial session for which they had registered will also be obligated to pay the registration fee for each subsequent session they register to attend. This policy applies equally to departments paying the registration fees of University employees.
