My class was cancelled, how long will the refund process take?

The UFT Course Program notifies the computer system that the course is cancelled. This ensures the online content reflects the change and no longer accepts online registration. Then, the UFT Course Program notifies registered members and offers course transfers if available. If no transfer can be made, refund requests will be generated.

The UFT Accounting will issue refunds in checks only; credit card refunds are not available. The refund process may take up to six weeks.
