The EMPA’s Summer Executive Leadership Series currently only accepts online credit card payment. We accept American Express, Discover, Master Card and Visa. The online credit card payment will be processed by CyberSource Corporation. Payments in cash or by check will not be accepted.

All payments must be made in full on or before the stipulated payment deadline date for each EMPA workshop, which is one day prior to the first session. By registering for any EMPA workshop you affirm that you understand the policies stipulated above, and you agree to abide by them.


A full (100%) registration fee refund may be granted provided that the participant submits a written refund request and such request is received by the EMPA Program Coordinator at least one (1) week prior to the first day of the workshop for which the participant is enrolled.

All refunds, full or partial, may be subject to a $10 processing fee. There is no refund for absenteeism or cancellation made on the day of a workshop.

If a workshop is canceled by the department due to weather or circumstances beyond our control all participants will be notified accordingly and will receive a full (100%) refund that is not subject to a processing fee. Refunds will be processed within 10 business days.
