I AM REGISTERED AND NOT ABLE TO ATTEND. CAN MY CO-WORKER TAKE MY SPOT?

No.  Teachers who are on a waiting list have first priority to available seats.  Your co-worker may submit a registration form and will be registered for a subject should space become available.

No.  Walk-ins will not be accepted.

WILL YOU HOLD A SPOT FOR ME?

CAN YOU TAKE MY REGISTRATION OVER THE PHONE?

No.  Participants are required to complete their registration online.

I FOUND OUT I WILL BE TEACHING A DIFFERENT SUBJECT.  CAN I CHANGE TO A DIFFERENT CLASS?

If your request is received before the registration deadline, space is available and no one is on the waiting list, we can change you to a different class.  All changes must be requested in writing and sent to precollegiateprograms@ou.edu.

CAN I REGISTER FOR ONE SUBJECT AND BE ON THE WAITING LIST FOR ANOTHER?

No.  We feel it isn’t fair to other teachers trying to register.

WHAT IF THE SUBJECT I WANT IF FULL?

If the subject you request is full, and you want to be placed on the waiting list, please submit your registration form WITHOUT the $50 Registration Deposit.  Your $50 Registration Deposit will be collected if a seat becomes available.  If a seat does become available, we will contact you at the email address you provide on your registration form.  If you do not reply, we will move to the next person on the waiting list.

I AM GOING TO HAVE TO MISS A PARTICULAR DAY OR HOURS DURING THE INSTITUTE. CAN I DO THIS?

Yes.  However, certificates are only provided to those who attend 100% of the institute.  No exceptions.  If you miss some time, you may request a letter confirming the number of hours you attended.

Yes, but the fee MUST be paid before the first day of the institute.

WILL MY $50 REGISTRATION DEPOSIT BE REIMBURSED?

No.  The Oklahoma State Department of Education no longer reimburses the $50 Registration Deposit.

WHAT ABOUT REFUNDS?
