Jump Link1. What is included in the seminar fee?

Jump Link2. What are my payment options?

A) Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard or American Express)
Registering online with a credit card is by far the quickest and easiest way to ensure a place in your program of choice. Click on “Enrol Now” to access our secure online registration form, fill in all of the necessary information, click Submit, and you’re done. You will receive a return Thank-you page in your browser and an automatic email to the address supplied confirming that your submission has been received.

B) Cheque (company or personal)
Payment by company cheque requires a Purchase Order number and an authorizing manager’s name. If these are unavailable at the time of registration, you will be tentatively registered and then contacted by a registration assistant to confirm your place in the program. Personal cheques are also accepted for tentative registration, but payment by credit card will ensure immediate acceptance into the course (subject to availability).

If you are attending a program being held in Toronto, cheques must be made payable to:
“York University – Schulich Executive Education Centre”

Cheques should be mailed to:

Finance Dept.
Schulich Executive Education Centre
500-222 Bay Street
Toronto ON  M5K 1K2

C) Payment Plan
For programs that run longer than one week, SEEC offers a payment plan. Registrants are required to pay the deposit fee +HST upon registering for the program. The balance is spread across three instalments depending on the end date of the program, with the first instalment due one week prior to the program start. Participants will be required to provide credit card information, as instalments will be automatically charged on the payment due date. If interested in this option, please contact our registration department at 416-736-5079 or execregistration@schulich.yorku.ca

Jump Link3. Is there a reduction if we enrol more than one person?

Yes. When registering for 2-5-day or 6+ day programs, you will receive a reduction of $150 each off the regular tuition fee when two or more registrations for the same course are received at the same time. We regret that we are unable to give the multiple-registration discount unless registrations are received together.

Jump Link4. When is payment due?

The seminar fee is due and payable at the time you register. An invoice will be issued and emailed to you within 2-3 days of receipt of your registration. Payment must be received two weeks prior to the commencement of the seminar, or your spot cannot be guaranteed. You may reserve a spot without identifying an applicant as long as a contact name is provided.

Jump Link5. Is there still space in the seminar I want to attend?

Seminar attendance is limited, however, if there is space available, it is possible to register for a seminar at any time up to the day before the commencement date. In the case of 6+ day programs with standalone modules, it is possible to register after the program has started (see No. 11). If in doubt please call or email to confirm space availability.

Jump Link6. What is the cancellation policy

Program sessions may be cancelled by SEEC up to 15 calendar days prior to the scheduled start date due to insufficient enrolment or other causes. In the event a program session is cancelled, participants will be offered a place in a future session of that program or in an equivalent program of the same duration. If no suitable session is available, participants will receive a full refund.

Registrants who provide notice of cancellation at least 15 days in advance of the start date for 2-5-day programs and 21 days in advance of the start date for 6+ day programs will receive a full refund.
Late cancellations from 2-5-day programs will be subject to an administration fee of $500. Late cancellations from 6+ day programs or standalone modules within those programs will be subject to an administration fee of $1000. Non-attendance will incur full seminar tuition cost. If you are unable to attend the program, your organization may name a replacement participant. You may transfer to another seminar date for the same course or another seminar of equal cost, if you are unable to attend your originally scheduled date and provide written notice at least 15 days in advance. For transfer policy details, see item 9.

SEEC’s liability is limited to reimbursement of paid tuition fees. Fees, dates and speakers are subject to change.

Jump Link9. Once registered, can I transfer from one date to another?

Yes. One transfer only will be permitted, subject to availability, without penalty on individual courses, provided written notice is received at least 15 days in advance of the seminar start date. First-transfer requests received less than 15 days in advance of the seminar start date will incur a $100 late-transfer fee for 2-5-day programs and 6+ day programs. Subsequent transfers for the same program will incur a $200 late-transfer fee.

Jump Link10. Can I earn maintenance credits towards my professional designation?

Yes. Many SEEC programs are recognized by professional organizations such as CAP, HRPA, IIBA, PMI and others, and are eligible for continuing education credits. Each program description lists the number and type of credits awarded by association. For a list of programs that qualify for continuing education credits, visit the Browse All Programs page and click “Yes” on the “Show Only Programs Offering Continuing Education or Certification Maintenance Credits” filter.

Jump Link11. Can I take individual program modules by themselves?

Yes. Many of our 6+ day programs offer “standalone modules” as an alternative to registering for the full program (subject to space availability). Except where noted, participants choosing this option qualify for the full-program price, as long as all subsequent modules are taken in sequence (eg, start with module 2-4, then complete module 1). Alternatively, participants may register in standalone modules in any sequence over 36-months at individual module prices and receive the full-program certificate upon completion of all required modules. Some programs also offer the option to take a standalone module at a partner institution offering the same program. For more information, contact our registration department at 416-736-5079 or execregistration@schulich.yorku.ca
