Cancellation Policy: Cancellations received by noon the day prior to the seminar will be entitled to a refund. No refund will be given on notifications received after that time or in any no-show situation. When the Enterprise Center collects the registration fees, its cancellation policies apply. Please contact them directly for further information. The MSBDC reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a seminar due to insufficient enrollment. Registration fees will be returned or credited towards a future program.

Inclement Weather Policy: In the event that a host school is closed due to inclement weather, SBDC workshops scheduled at that location are also canceled. We will try to cancel workshops before the actual scheduled date if we know that there is bad weather predicted for that day.

We will make every effort to reschedule workshops that have been canceled due to weather conditions as early as possible. Refer to the host school websites for schedule changes, weather alerts and updates.
