McMaster University Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program Cancellation Policy


If you register for the program, and inform the Program’s Admin Coordinator at the time of registration, exactly which days you will miss, we can register you for those days in the next available program at no charge.

If the program has already started, when you inform the Program’s Admin Coordinator that you will have to miss a day or two, then the policy (below) shall apply.  If you miss a day of the course, the policy (below) shall apply.

McMaster University Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program Policy on Missing Units

If a Unit is to be missed during the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program, rescheduling to complete the Unit in the next available program is possible under the following circumstances:

1.    A written request for rescheduling must be submitted to the Program’s Admin Coordinator by no later than six weeks prior to the commencement of the Unit.  Approval is not automatic and will depend on the nature of the extraordinary circumstances that have caused the rescheduling.  If a rescheduling is granted, the Unit will be considered "postponed" and a $450.00 rescheduling admin fee shall apply in order to complete the Unit in the next available program.

2.    If no written request was timely submitted or if it was rejected, the Unit would be considered "NOT COMPLETED" and a $1,081.00 full registration fee shall be charged for new registration to complete the Unit in the next available program.  In this case, no partial credits shall be issued for completed portions of the program until the missing Unit is satisfactorily completed.

3.    Truly unanticipated extraordinary circumstances shall be evaluated on an individual basis.  Unanticipated extraordinary circumstances mainly include acts of terrorism, natural disasters, and medical emergencies properly documented by a medical certificate.

4.    Under NO circumstances shall a given Unit be permitted to be rescheduled more than twice.  In that case, the program participant will be recorded as "FAILURE TO COMPLETE THE PROGRAM" and no further rescheduling rights will exist.  A full registration for a new program will be required.

5.    One day absence (even if it is scheduled before the course begins) due to extraordinary circumstances can be made up by arranging a day of shadowing an instructor and completing the missed workshop exercises at a charge of $350.00 per missed day.  Anything over one day must first be approved by the Director of the Program.  If approved, the cost is $600.00 for 2 days, and $800.00 for 3 days.  These arrangements are not automatic and shall depend on the circumstances of the missed day.  Otherwise, a rescheduling of the full Unit is required with the current fee.
