Transfers, Cancellations and Refunds:

  • To transfer to another program or to drop a lecture, please send a written request to or fill out a transfer form or drop form available at the desk in the auditorium. All transfers require administrative approval.

  • No refunds can be given after lectures begin.

  • One-time lectures that were purchased as part of a discounted bundle are non-refundable.

  • A $15 processing fee per person will be charged for each lecture series refunded. A $5 processing fee per person will be charged for each one-time event / lecture refunded that was not purchased within a bundle. No refunds will be given for programs purchased as part of a discounted bundled purchase. There will be no exceptions. Due to the high administrative costs, we regret that no matter the circumstances all refunds will be subject to drop fees.

  • Processing refunds for lectures or events paid for by check require the last four digits of your social security number and direct deposit information with your refund request. Refunds for check payments take a significant amount of time to be processed.

Registration Checklist

  1. Please be sure to include your Patron ID number on your form. It can be found next to your name on the back cover of the schedule book or on your patron ID card.

  2. Use separate forms for husband and wife.

  3. Fill in your full address, including zip code.

  4. Include your e-mail address on your form, if you have one.

Or, if paying by credit card, complete all credit card information on the registration sheet. The form must be signed regardless of payment method. If the form is not signed, we cannot process it, resulting in a delay of your registration.

  6. Check the total amount owed for accuracy.

  7. Verify that your program choices have been correctly marked on the registration form.

  8. DO NOT include annual membership fees if you are a lifetime member.

  9. Remember that new or renewal memberships will be good through June 30, 2018.

  10. Do not put MEMBER registrations and NON-MEMBER registrations on the same form. Each patron must submit his/her own form. Do not combine member payment and non-member payments on a check. Check payment for non-members is not permitted.

  11. Use separate checks for members with different last names. Only spouses with the same last name may combine memberships and registrations on one check.

  12. Be sure to include your license plate and state of registration on your registration form. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A VEHICLE, please state this on your registration form. Failure to do so will delay your registration.
