Cancellation Policy

If you must cancel your application or suggest a substitute participant, send written notice to Debby Smallwood at the Florida Institute of Government. Substitutions can be made at no additional cost provided the substitute meets the program criteria and passes successfully through the application and selection process. If the substitute applicant is not selected for participation, cancellation fees will be assessed accordingly To allow sufficient time to update program records and review substitute applications, the deadline for substitution is 14 days prior to the program start date.

If you cancel your application, a portion of the registration fees will be refunded based on the following deadlines:

For cancellation of your application received between the application due date and notification of selection, a $50 administrative fee will be assessed to offset the costs associated with processing the application. The remainder of the registration fee will be refunded.

For cancellation of your application received between after notification of selection up to 14 days prior to the program start date, a $250 administrative fee will be assessed. This fee will help offset the costs associated with processing your application and finding another participant. The remainder of the registration fee will be refunded.

No refunds will be given for cancellation of your application after 14 days prior to the program start date. Your selection will have resulted in the program turning away other applicants, and the Program will have incurred costs associated with your participation, including administrative, materials, and workshop coordination costs.

Once the program begins, there can be no substitutions or refunding of registration fees. Completion of all of the work is a requirement for certification, and costs will have been incurred on your behalf for the program.

If you are unable to complete the program, you will be given opportunity to make-up missed class meetings and assignments during the following class year at no additional cost. If missed work is not completed during the following class year, you will be required to reapply for a subsequent class year, pay the full registration fee for that year and start the certification program from the beginning.
