Cancellation Policy
Registrants who are unable to attend the National Freshman Success Institute may request a full refund if NCS is notified of the cancellation at least 30 days prior to the first session. Registrants canceling within 30 days of the first session will not be eligible for a refund and must pay the registration cost regardless of attendance. Please keep in mind that cancellations may impact team or group rates.

​NCS reserves the right to change or cancel a National Freshman Success Institute session at its discretion. In the unlikely event of a change or cancellation (due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances), NCS is not responsible for non-refundable travel arrangements or other planning expenses incurred. In addition, NCS is not responsible for refunding registration costs if the National Freshman Success Institute occurs and the participant(s) cannot attend due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Switching Participants Policy
The National Freshman Success Institute is a seven-day, scaffolded experience. Participants are expected to attend all seven days in person so they can fully understand the research, data, and practice involved in freshman success work. For this reason, participants are strongly discouraged from registering if they cannot attend all seven days.

If a school/district would like to switch one participant with another educator after the Institute begins, then an additional fee of $500 will be applied. NCS understands that extenuating and unexpected circumstances arise from time to time. Should it be absolutely necessary to replace a participant, NCS may waive the fee at our discretion. Please contact Evelyn Camarillo immediately if your school/district needs to switch participants.

If someone attends a session of the National Freshman Success Institute without registering online or contacting Evelyn Camarillo to register as a replacement, he/she will be charged the the full cost of attendance.
