  • To cancel from a program the registrant must submit a written request to billing@berkeley.edu and not have started the program.
  • To transfer to a different iteration date of the same program, a registrant must submit a written request to billing@berkeley.edu and the program services manager. Every accommodation will be made to ensure enrollment in the next upcoming iteration.

    • If you need to withdraw after the start of the program and do not transfer to new program dates, or if you are found to be in violation of the Agreements or any other UC Berkeley Executive Education policy, you will not be issued a refund. UC Berkeley Executive Education will communicate your options based upon your situation on a case-by-case basis.

Program Cancellations 

While we strive to maintain our published course schedules, Berkeley Executive Education will need to cancel programs periodically. We will inform registrants in canceled programs immediately via email and arrange for a transfer to a future program date or a full refund of the associated program fee.

Note: Any travel coordination and expenses related to the attendance of our in-person programs are the sole responsibility of the program registrant(s). For this reason, we highly recommend you plan your travel accordingly.
