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. Go to our secure online registration form, fill in all of the necessary information, click Submit, and you’re done. You will receive a return 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 cheque requires a Purchase Order number and an authorizing manager’s name. If these are available at the time of registration, you have only a tentative registration and you will be contacted by a registration assistant to confirm your place in your program.

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

Cheques should be mailed to:

Schulich Executive Education Centre
Schulich School of Business at York University
222 Bay Street
PO Box 304
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 Person?

If registering for Public Seminars or Conferences, 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 when registrations are received non-concurrently.

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. 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 seminar start date for Public Seminars and Conferences and 21 days in advance of the start date for Professional Courses and Senior Management Courses will receive a full refund. Please see the application form for details on the Executive Program cancellation policy.

Late cancellations of Public Seminars and Conferences will be subject to an administration fee of $500. Late cancellations of Professional Courses and Senior Management Courses will be subject to an administration fee of $600-$1000 (please refer to the program brochure for specific details). 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 of the seminar start date. Transfer requests less than 15 days in advance of the seminar start date will incur a $100 late transfer fee. Only one transfer to an alternate session will be permitted without penalty. Each subsequent transfer request has a $200 administration fee for Public Seminars and Conferences and $300 for Professional Courses and Senior Management Courses.

In addition, Residential Program participants transferring/cancelling their reservations at the ELC hotel less than three (3) weeks from the start of their program will incur a $1000 fee.
