Frequently Asked Questions & Program Policies.

Below are the answers to some frequently asked questions and details for programs.

Costs & Discounts

How do I pay for the program?
  • Registration is not complete until you are paid in full.
  • Credit cards are the preferred form of payment and Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted at the time of registration.
  • Payment by check is also accepted, however the processing of such must be initiated at least six weeks prior to the start of the program. Therefore, we highly recommended that you pay first with a credit card in order to ensure your seat in the program and then, if possible, seek reimbursement from your employer.
Can I reserve a spot without payment?

Unfortunately because space is limited, spots in a program cannot be saved without first completing the payment & registration process. If you are interested in a specific program, please be sure to register as soon as possible.

Changes, Cancellations & Notices

What if I need to cancel my registration?

To cancel or transfer your registration, write to profed@wellesley.edu.

No shows without notification will not receive a refund.

Participants who cancel less than one week before the start of the program will be refunded half the program fee. If you do not cancel and do not attend the program, you forfeit the entire tuition.

What happens if Wellesley cancels the program?

Professional Development programs are rarely canceled because of inclement weather. If they are cancelled, a notice is posted on the homepage the day of cancellation. Participants are notified by email.

Programs may be added or cancelled throughout the year. If a program is cancelled, Wellesley will refund the program tuition in full, but is not responsible for travel, accommodations, or other expenses incurred by the participant.
