Policies for Professional and Executive Education

Course fees must be paid at the time of registration. You can register anytime, but it is best to register early; our courses fill up quickly. In some cases, courses are closed to registration seven days before the course starts. A 5% discount is available to three or more registrants from the same organization registering for the same program at the same time. NSF cheques are subject to a $50 charge.

Written cancellations received a minimum of two weeks prior to the program start date will receive a full refund. Late cancellations will be subject to a 20% administration fee. Non-attendance will incur the full program fee. Non-attendance does not constitute notice of withdrawal. Organizations may substitute candidates if notice is provided prior to the program start date. Masters Certificate Program cancellations received a minimum of three weeks in advance of the program start date will receive a full refund. Late cancellations will be subject to a $800 administration fee. Refund is not available after the course begins.

Future EDge liability is limited to the reimbursement of paid program fees. Fees, dates and speakers are subject to change.

Future EDge reserves the right to cancel a class at any time but will make its best efforts to provide a minimum of 10 business days notice of such cancellation. In such cases, we will refund the course fee(s) in full. Our liability is limited to course fee(s) only. We cannot be held liable for travel or other related expenses.

Attendance to all Certificate Program modules is mandatory. Missing part or all of a module requires attendance to a make up session. Certificates cannot be awarded until the entire program has been completed. Only one transfer to another program offering will be permitted (subject to space availability) without penalty. Each subsequent transfer has a $200 (+HST) administration fee.

Adherence to acceptable standards of academic honesty is an important aspect of the learning process. Academic work submitted by a student is evaluated on the assumption that the work presented by the student is their own unless designated otherwise.
The University Senate defines plagiarism in the regulations on instructional offenses as: “to use and pass off as one’s own idea or product work of another without expressly giving credit to another.”

Borrowing someone else’s answers, unauthorized possession of tests or answers to tests, or possession of material designed in answering exam questions, are also subject to university policy regarding instructional offenses.

All instances or accusations of plagiarism or breach of academic integrity will be forwarded and investigated by the Program Coordinator in alignment with the policies and procedures of Carleton University Future EDge.
