Refunds

The GRC policy is that there will be no refunds of program fees. Under special circumstances, a program fee may be partially refunded.  This is based on provision of timely, officially documented medical  reasons, which cannot have pre-existed at the time of joining GRC. This  decision is solely at the discretion of the Board,  and subject to  deduction of fees committed on behalf of the registrant.
