Pricing & Policy

Learning & Development workshop participants will be required to provide a form of payment upon registering for a workshop or program.

Columbia faculty and staff are required to obtain approval form their manager to take any of the classroom learning courses. Employees should speak with their manager and department finance contact to secure the account and project information needed to process the internal chargeback in ARC, also known as a chartstring.

Affiliates and other members of the Columbia University community will be prompted to provide payment for workshops via credit card to confirm registration. It is important to also review associated payment procedures, cancellation and refund policies.
