Course Policies


Most Professional Development courses are dependent upon a minimum number of
registered students to run. If the minimum enrollment is not met, the course will be
cancelled and registrants fully refunded. Some courses may be limited to a maximum
enrollment with registration on a first-come, first-served basis. Once a course is full,
students will be added to a waitlist and notified if an opening becomes available.


Registration fees vary by course and full payment is required at the time of registration.
Professional Development courses do not qualify for financial aid or any of the various
fee waivers that may apply to UM credit courses.


Students will receive full refunds for cancellations received up to one week before the
course start date. To cancel a course, students should call Student Support Services,

Refunds are generally not provided for cancellations received after a course begins.
Please note The University of Montana requires a "Substitute W-9 Form" in order to
process refunds for payments made by check. The "Substitute W-9" form requires the
student’s Social Security Number.

ADA Accommodations

UM will provide reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities. To request
an accommodation, students should contact Student Support Services, 406.243.6496,
at least two weeks before a course starts.
