Cancellations and Refunds

Through May 1, 2020 there is a 100% tuition refund.

  • May 2 through June 12, 2020 a full refund minus a $50 Processing Fee will be made.
  • Between June 13 and June 22, 2020 a partial refund of $300.
  • After June 22, 2020: No refunds will be given.
Handouts will be electronic. Handouts will not be provided to those who cancel.

It is impossible for the Institute to refund 100% of the registration fee. It is important to note that the Institute incurs numerous contractual obligations long before the event, and is financially committed to expenditures that may not be refundable to the University.


The Wisconsin Municipal Clerks Association (WMCA) and the Municipal Treasurers Association of Wisconsin (MTAW) offer full and partial scholarships. The scholarship applications are available on their websites in January. Scholarships range from $100 to all expenses paid including lodging and tuition. The applications are easy to fill out and well worth the effort. Last year attendees received scholarships totaling over $19,000.

Go to WMCA's website or MTAW's website to get your application.
If you have any Scholarship questions, please contact the respective organization.
