We are confident in the quality of our program. If any participant feels the program did not deliver a valuable experience as described in the brochure and website, we will refund his or her full tuition.

Cancellation and Reimbursement Policy

Cancellations or deferrals must be submitted in writing at least 60 days prior to program start date to receive full refund. Due to program demand and the volume of pre-program preparation, cancellations or deferrals received 30-60 days before the program start date are subject to a fee of 50% of the tuition.  There will be no reimbursement or deferral received within 30 days of the program start date.

  • Deferrals
    If you would like to switch to a course offered at a different date, we will apply your tuition, less any cancellation fees, toward the new course. Please note that the tuition for a course offered at a later date may be higher.  In that case, individuals switching to the later course date will need to pay the difference in the tuition fees.
  • Exceptions
    Exceptions may be allowed only under extenuating circumstances (i.e. death in family, illness, etc.) and with approval from Leadership Institute Director of Operations.
