Cancellation/Refund Policy

Live (Virtual or In-Person):

All refunds are subject to a $50.00 non-refundable and non-transferable administrative fee per course except when a course is cancelled or rescheduled by USC Marshall Office of Executive Education. In the event a course is cancelled or rescheduled, a full refund of the course fee will be processed. The Office of Executive Education refunds back to original payer and in the original form of payment.

Due to the inherent program costs, the following fee schedule applies if you cancel:

Within 2 weeks of program start 100% of program fee
From 2 to 5 weeks prior to program start 50% of program fee
More than 5 weeks prior to program start $50 processing fee

Cancellation fees are based on the number of weeks from the program start date. We must receive your cancellation request in writing via e-mail by the dates indicated above.

If, for any reason, you need to cancel your registration, and you paid with a credit card, we can only refund to the same credit card with which you originally paid. If you do not have that credit card available for your refund, we can only issue a credit towards other Executive Education courses, at the value of your original course. We cannot issue a refund to a different credit card

On-Demand Programming:

Sales for on-demand programs are final once a course has been launched. Refunds can be obtained for 100% of the program fee prior to launching a course. If the quality of a program fails to meet expectations, the learner shall contact the Office of Executive Education as soon as possible to discuss concerns. The Office of Executive Education shall have the option of granting a one-time course substitution of an alternate on-demand course title

Transfer and Substitution Policy

The Office of Executive Education may accept one-time transfers to an alternate program offering in our discretion. All transfer notices must be received by e-mail prior to the start date of the program. Qualified substitutes for registrations can be accommodated with advance written notice.
