Track cancellations by OSU/NRLA - are scheduled to be determined by May 10, 2016. If a track is canceled and another option is either not available or acceptable within that same week, the $75 academy fee will be refunded (if previously paid), as well as any other prepaid non-credit fees. However, Oregon State University is not responsible for any fees or costs incurred by participants (e.g. airfare, transportation, lodging, OSU admission, etc.) as a result of track cancellations, therefore no refunds will be made to cover these costs.

- Week 2: Resilient & Robust Resource Management (WRP 599) running
Cancellation by the participant (credit) - a course (i.e. track) drop or withdrawal must be completed in the OSU "My OSU" (banner) system according to standard OSU summer term course drop/withdrawal deadlines and procedures. If a week 1 track is dropped/canceled, the $75 academy fee will not be refunded.

If attending only week 1 or both, the $75 academy fee will not be refunded, however any prepaid non-credit fees will be. If attending only week 2, any prepaid non-credit fees will be refunded.
