Registration Policy

A non-refundable $75 deposit is required to register for each workshop with a registration fee over $100. Workshops with registration fees under $100 require full payment for enrollment, $75 of which is non-refundable.

Full payment can be made at the time of registration but is not required. If full payment is not received at the time of registration, you will receive an invoice for the balance payment 60 days prior to the course date. If full payment is not received 30 days before the workshop, your space will be forfeited.

Payment can be made with a check payable to UC Regents or credit card (Visa or MasterCard only). *Please note that we cannot accept payment information via fax or email for security reasons. Stay tuned for options to complete payments on our web site via PayPal.

Cancellation Policy

The Friends staff will only cancel a workshop upon the request of the instructor or due to under enrollment (<10 students). If a workshop is cancelled, participants will be notified at least 30 days prior to the workshop and a full refund will be issued.

If you have to cancel, notify the Jepson Herbarium as soon as possible. The date of cancellation is the date that written notice (email, fax, or mail) is received by Friends staff. If your cancellation is received:

More than 60 days before the start of the course, you will receive a refund, less the $75 deposit.

59 - 15 days before the start of the course, if your space can be filled, you will receive a refund, less the $75 deposit.
