Class Cancellation and Refund Policy

Low Enrollment/Emergency Cancellation

The University at Buffalo CPR program reserves the right to cancel classes at any time. Classes may be cancelled due to low enrollment, severe or inclement weather, instructor illness, or emergency. In those very unlikely events, UB CPR will contact you via email. Participants preregistered in a cancelled class will receive priority enrollment in the next available class, or will be given the option to receive a full refund.

Cancellation

If you have registered and paid for the course you have guaranteed a space for that specific course date. Cancellations will not be accepted without a documented emergency (illness, death in the family). If you cannot attend the course you originally paid for, we will work with you to reschedule for another date. In the event of an emergency, supported with documentation, you will be eligible to receive a refund.

No-Show

If a registered student does not show up to their scheduled class and has not rescheduled, the student will forfeit the complete paid registration fee.
