Inclement Weather Policy

In case of inclement weather, please call (434) 924-SNOW. If the University is operating on a regular academic/work schedule or if employees are granted a grace period to arrive, the event will be held as scheduled. Therefore, NO request for release of obligation or refund will be granted. In the rare circumstance that the University is closed (i.e. classes are canceled), the event will be canceled and every attempt will be made to reschedule.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

Requests for registration cancellation must be made in writing to the UVA Career Center. Event expenses are incurred based on the number of registrants; therefore, NO request for release of obligation or refund will be granted if received by the Career Center less than 14 days prior to the event. A full refund will be granted if the request for cancellation is received at least 30 days prior to the event and a refund of 50% will be granted if the cancellation request is received 15-29 days prior to the event. Financial Commitment Disclosure: In confirming registration for this event, you are hereby contractually obligated to the terms set forth herein by statutes of the Virginia Commonwealth via UVA Career Center. The public and/or government organization is hereby placed on notice that failure to pay in full at the time goods or services are rendered or when billed (under the University department's conditions) may result in the imposition of interest (see Interest Fee reference below) on the unpaid balance. Returned checks will incur a handling fee of $25.00. If the matter is referred for collection to an attorney or to a collection agency, then the debtor will be liable for attorney's fees or additional collection fees of the unpaid balance.
