Registration Policy

Course fees are listed as Jepson Friend/General Public. To join the Friends of the Jepson Herbarium, click here.

Workshops with registration fees less than $100 require full payment for enrollment.

We require a non-refundable $75 deposit for each workshop that has a registration fee of more than $100. Full payment for these workshops 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 due 60 days prior to the workshop date. If full payment is not received 30 days before the workshop, your space will be forfeited.

In special circumstances (for example, if your employer will be paying for a workshop and requires extra time to issue a check), we may be able to temporarily hold a space for you without a deposit. Please call the Herbarium for details.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, and checks made payable to UC Regents.

Cancellation Policy

The Friends staff will only cancel a workshop at the request of the instructor or because of insufficient enrollment. If we cancel a workshop, ach enrolled participant will receive a full refund.

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

If your cancellation is received more than 30 days before the start of the course, you will receive a refund, less the $75 deposit. Within 30 days of the start of the course, no refunds will be issued.
