Payment schedule: We request that you pay the full amount of your Basic Expenses at the time of registration to reserve your spot. Our preference is to receive tuition payments at the time of registration, but we can accommodate tuition payments as late as June 20, 2018. Payments after the initial registration can be made online through PayPal or payments via check can be mailed (see section on how to register below). If a different timing for the payments is needed, please contact us at nlsj@weavinghearts.com.

Refund Policy: If you cancel on or before June 20, 2018, your fees will be refunded minus a $100 administrative fee. If you cancel after June 20, 2018, your fees will be refunded (minus the $100 administrative fee) only if we can fill your spot with another participant. If we are unable to do so, your fees, minus the cost of Basic Expenses and a $200 administrative fee, will be refunded.

 Scholarship Assistance: It is our greatest desire that all persons who want to come to The Nonviolent Leadership for Social Justice Retreat are able to do so.  As part of our commitment to ensuring class diversity, we do not want access to funds to be the only barrier for attendance.  If you would like to attend this retreat and do not have funds to pay the requested contributions, please contact us at nlsj@weavinghearts.com or visit our website nlsj.learnnvc.org/registration for information on applying for scholarship.
