What is your cancellation and refund policy?

A full refund, less a $25 processing fee, will be issued for all cancellations received or postmarked at least two weeks prior to the course date. A 50 percent refund less a $25 processing fee will be given for cancellations received one week prior to the course date, with no refund thereafter. Cancellations received the day of the course are not eligible for a refund. Registrants may choose to receive a full tuition credit toward a future course. UK College of Nursing Continuing Education reserves the right to cancel a course when circumstances are warranted. In such a case, a full refund will be issued. The UK College of Nursing is not responsible for travel or accommodations expenses.
