New course cancellation policy starting with 2015 courses
Starting with 2015 courses, there will be a minimum cancellation fee of $50 for all courses more than two nights and $25 for day-longs and weekends. Prior policies will also remain in effect:
Three-tier course fee structure
Our three-tier structure for course fees is designed to make transparent to you the real costs to BCBS. Course fees have never covered our actual cost of $150 per student per night. We have not increased them in five years. The three-tier system will allow us to continue to offer the current low fee to those who need it.
Our lowest rate, “supported,” is the same as 2013 course fees-–well below costs. “Mid-level” gets closer to costs; “Sustaining” covers costs. Choosing a higher tier helps make courses available to all, regardless of ability to pay. Any amount above “Supported” is considered a tax-deductible gift.
