POLICIES

Deposit and Registration: Fifty percent of the tuition (and room/board) is required with your registration at least 30 days prior to an event. Full payment is due three weeks prior to the first day of the event. Tuition cannot be refunded after the beginning of an event.

Cancellations: A full refund will be granted if LuTMA or a co-sponsoring institution is notified of a cancellation more than three weeks before the opening date of the LuTMA event. Cancellations less than three weeks prior to an event will result in a cancellation fee equal to 25% of the event tuition. Registrations are limited and accepted on a first-pay basis. If LuTMA cancels an event, full payment will be refunded. All fees, terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.

Transfers: If a registrant determines that it is necessary to change class dates or venues and wishes to participate in training at a different time and/or venue, there will be a $50 fee for the change. Registrants are encouraged to complete Phase II work with their Phase I faculty prior to transferring for the final phase. If transfer is due to the cancellation of a class by LuTMA the transfer fee will be waived.

Attendance: Participants are expected to attend all sessions of an event from the beginning time to its conclusion. It is important, especially for commuters, to have pastoral coverage arranged prior to your attending the event. A certificate of attendance/completion will not be given to anyone who misses any portion of a session.

Materials: Depending on the event, you will be given a workbook or handout material. The purchase of books and other reading material recommended will be the responsibility of participants.

Room and Board: Some of our events are scheduled with room and board available. Each site has different costs and requirements for payments. We will convey to you the information from the site about availability and cost. Any dietary or other special needs must be handled between the participant and the site staff.

Association Membership: ELCA and LC-MS participants in LuTMA educational events are strongly encouraged to become members of their respective denominational interim ministry organizations – Interim Ministry Association – ELCA or Interim Ministry Conference – LC-MS.
