Exceptions

Berkeley Law Executive Education may make exceptions to the refund deadline based on medical issues, death in the family, call to military service, or other extenuating circumstances. Proof will be required to consider any exceptions to the refund deadline. The decision on any request for exception is final, and Berkeley Law Executive Education reserves the right to approve or deny requests for exceptions to our cancellation and transfer policies. Requests for exceptions should be submitted by email to executive@law.berkeley.edu. Any refunds granted as an exception to the above policies will be subject to a $100 cancellation fee.
