- All event registration fees (e.g., conference, pre-conference, professional development, etc.) are non-transferable (to another person or to another year).
- Adjustments and/or refunds for conference registration fees will not be given to individuals who register at the non-member rate and later become a member. These funds are also non-transferable between membership and registration fees.
- Registration fees for professional development events (e.g., Graduate Student Policy Seminar, Early Career Workshop, etc.) are non-refundable and non-transferable.
- Partial (50%) of the conference and/or pre-conference registration fees may be refunded for extenuating circumstances prior to September 30 proceeding each year's conference.

Appeals will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are granted for very rare extenuating circumstances.

Appeals requests will be reviewed after the conference and a decision will be sent within one month of the end of the conference.
- Conference registration fees will not be refunded for weather or travel-related delays or cancellations.
