CPE Policies

Refund Policy

Cancellation requests must be made three business days in advance of the course to receive a refund. Requests made less than three business days in advance will result in a credit balance. Credit balances expire and are forfeited after six months. Another individual may substitute for you at the course. No-shows forfeit the registration fee.

Transfer Policy

Transfers to another course will be allowed up to one business day before a course. Transfers to a lower-priced course initiated by the attendee will result in a refund if the difference amounts to $15 or more. The discounted price per course after purchasing a "Season Pass" is not transferable to another course.

Course Cancellation Policy

In the event that a course must be cancelled, registrants will be notified immediately and full refunds will be given. If purchased with a previous credit the refund will remain as a credit. No refunds will be given for individual courses purchased under the “Event Bundle” or "Season Pass" price. The chapter will try to reschedule the course.

Late Arrivals/Early Departures

Anyone who arrives at a NJCPA Education Foundation continuing professional education program late or leaves early will have his or her CPE credits adjusted accordingly. This is especially important with regard to the New Jersey Law and Ethics course. This is a four-hour requirement mandated by the New Jersey State Board of Accountancy (NJSBA), and participants must complete the entire 200 minutes in order to fulfill the requirement. Late arrivals and early departures will not be permitted. As stipulated by the NJSBA, continuing professional education credit is granted at the rate of one credit hour for every 50 minutes of in-class participation.

Special Requirements

If you plan to attend a program and will need assistance relating to a disability, please contact us at least three weeks prior to the event. If you have any special dietary requirement, please contact us within five days of the program.

Season Pass Holders

In order for the chapter to submit accurate counts to meeting facilities, you must register for each event.
