Class Cancellation and Refund Policy • The Division of Educational Outreach (DEO) reserves the right to cancel any class or make any other changes it deems necessary in order to provide students with the best educational experience possible. • Course fees will be refunded in full if it becomes necessary to cancel a course, however, under no circumstances will the amount refunded exceed the amount of the registration fee. DEO will not reimburse students for the cost of travel or lodging in the unlikely event a class is cancelled. Therefore, DEO recommends students traveling to attend classes make refundable travel reservations in case it becomes necessary to make changes. • DEO will make all reasonable attempts to notify students of class cancellations or changes, using email, phone, and fax contact information provided by the student at the time of registration. It is recommended you call 702-895-3394 a day prior to your class to confirm the class will meet as scheduled. • We recognize you may occasionally need to cancel a registration. If you wish to receive a refund, we must receive a written statement (email, fax, or postal mail) listing the course name and number, and giving the reason for cancellation. The direct link for the cancellation page is: http://continuingeducation.unlv.edu/ registration/refund/ or it may be faxed to 702-895-4195. Postal mail refund requests should be sent to Division of Educational Outreach, 4505 S. Maryland Parkway, Box 451019, Las Vegas, NV 89154-1019. • Refunds of registration fees paid by credit card will be processed as a credit to the credit card account within seven to ten business days of the cancellation notification. Refunds of registration fees paid by check will require a minimum of six weeks to be processed, to allow sufficient time for the check issued by the student to clear, prior to a refund check being issued. • Unless a separate policy is stated for a specific class or classes, the following applies to all cancellations and refunds: Prior to the first day of class 100 percent of the fee paid will be refunded minus a $10 administrative fee. If class has begun or concluded, refunds are decided on a case-by-case basis. All refunds must be requested within 14 days of the last class. All of the provisions of the Class Cancellation and Refund Policy are in accordance with relevant Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) rules and regulations adopted and approved by the NSHE Board of Regents.

• The Division of Educational Outreach cooperates with the Clark County District Attorney’s office to prevent bad check losses. A $25 service fee will be assessed for any check returned from the bank for any reason. Post-dated or two party checks will not be accepted. Any returned check shall be made good within ten days after notification to the student, or the student will not be permitted to attend any classes.

Payment of Fees • Payment must be received at the time of registration. Students are responsible for the payment of all fees associated with each course in which they enroll within the time period specified by UNLV. • Students who fail to pay fees when due, will be required to pay late fees and any additional penalties established by UNLV. Failure to pay applicable fees when due will result in referral to an outside collection agency.

Professional Credit Upon registering for a professional course (real estate or management) for the purpose of obtaining professional credit hours, please include your Nevada license number.

CEUs do not constitute academic credit. They are maintained by the Division of Educational Outreach and provide you with a transcript upon request. So, what do you do with a CEU? As you update your credentials, are in line for a transfer, promotion or evaluation of your current position, or want to make a vocational change or explore a new career, the CEUs demonstrate the time, energy and interest you have shown in broadening your horizons. University of Nevada, Las Vegas Alumni UNLV alumni with a baccalaureate or advanced degree are entitled to a 15 percent discount on ONE select class per semester as deemed by the DEO office. This discount may only be used by alumni (not their spouses or children).
