Payment Policies

Payment of Fees

Executive Education program fees must be paid in full no later than two weeks prior to the start of the program, pending availability.

Group Discounts

If a group discount is available for a Berkeley Law Executive Education program, participants from an organization must register at the same time. We will not process reimbursements retroactively.

Payment Methods

We accept credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, and American Express), wire transfers, or a cashier’s check or money order drawn from a U.S. bank.

Cancellations and Refunds

Executive Education participants may cancel their enrollment in any program that was previously paid for pursuant to the following requirements:

  • All cancellation requests must be received in writing at executive@law.berkeley.edu.
  • Cancellation requests will only be accepted up to two weeks before the program start date.
  • For program fees paid via credit card, we will refund the program fee in full, less a $100 cancellation fee.
  • For program fees paid by check or money order, we will refund the program fee in full, less a $100 cancellation fee.
  • For program fees paid via wire transfer, we will refund the program in full, less a $300 cancellation fee.
  • In the case of a no-show or partial participation, no refund will be granted.

Note: Some Berkeley Law Executive Education programs have their own, unique, cancellation policies that are provided during the registration process. In those cases, the program policy supersedes the policy outlined above.

Program Date Changes

Berkeley Law Executive Education reserves the right to cancel programs and/or change program dates.

If we will not offer the program at a future date, we will handle the situation in one of the following ways:

  • We will refund your paid tuition in full.
  • We will work with you to identify another one of our programs that meets your professional development objectives and then apply your previously paid tuition to the replacement program. If the tuition of the replacement program is less than the original program’s tuition, we will reimburse the balance to you in full.

If we reschedule a program and the new date is not convenient for you, we will do one of the following:

  • Substitute your participation with that of a qualified colleague at no additional cost.
  • Issue you a full tuition refund.

Financial Aid

Financial assistance is not available for Berkeley Law Executive Education programs. If, however, you are interested in financing these courses, Sallie Mae provides competitive education loan programs for credit qualified borrowers.  For more information and to apply, visit the Sallie Mae website.
