Refunds and Rebates

The course fee (less a $30 administrative fee) will be refunded only if cancellation of enrollment is postmarked by the specific refund date indicated in each course description. Notify the Short Course Program Office immediately by calling (310) 825-3344, followed by a written request for refund. A refund is not allowed after the published refund date; however, you may apply the course fee (less the $30 service charge) toward enrolling in another short course. A full refund is given if a course is canceled, discontinued, rescheduled, or participant is dissatisfied after attending the first day of a two- to five-day course. UCLA Extension assumes no liability for travel or other expenses incurred by participants requesting a refund.

The Short Course Program pairs certain related courses and schedules them back to back during the same week. Rebates are offered on each of the course fees if both courses are taken in combination with one another. Rebates are processed after the final refund dates of both courses.

Course Fee Discounts
Early Enrollment

Receive a discount on the course fee if you enroll (with payment) by the early-enrollment date indicated in the course description. Please note that a tentative reservation only holds a space in the course and that payment must be made by the deadline to qualify for the discount. Enrollment and/or payment after the deadline date will be processed using the higher fee listed in the course description. (This discount cannot be combined with any of the other course discounts.)

Team Advantage

Send three people from your organization as a group and receive one additional free enrollment for a colleague. Many past participants say that having three or more colleagues attend a short course together is highly beneficial. Multiple attendees are known to share knowledge and experiences, extend their networking chain, and return with new skills and ideas that can be applied more effectively throughout their team or organization. For this reason, we’ve created “Team Advantage.” When you register three people as a group, we’ll offer you one additional enrollment (as approved by your organization) at no charge. It’s a great way for you to invite a colleague, boss, supplier, client, or other vital member of your organizational team and get started on your path to success! Send all four enrollment forms together (be sure to check the “Team Advantage” box on each form) or request this discount when making your reservations. This offer is limited to one per organization. (This discount cannot be combined with any of the other course discounts.)


A limited number of 25% discounts are available to full-time faculty members and full-time graduate students (who do not work full time) from accredited universities. Submit a written request, including verification of academic status, to the Short Course Program Office at least three weeks prior to the course’s start date. (This discount cannot be combined with any of the other course discounts.)

Multiple Course

Any paying participant of a short course qualifies for a 10% discount off the fees of additional short courses taken within one calendar year of the first course. Please request this discount when making your reservation and/or enrolling. (This discount cannot be combined with any of the other course discounts.)

Continuing Education Unit (CEU)

One CEU is awarded for each 10 contact hours of satisfactory participation in an organized noncredit continuing education program.
