Registrants may pay by check or credit card. Your space in the program is not confirmed until payment is received. Also, please note that for seminars that require pre-work, you will not receive the materials before payment.

Payments by check will be processed by Student Fiscal Services (SFS) at the University of Washington. SFS processes checks electronically using the information on the check to create an electronic funds transfer. Each time you send a check, you authorize a one-time electronic transfer where funds will be withdrawn from your bank account.

If you would like to request a copy of your payment receipt, please contact [email protected]. Please note that we cannot issue Form 1098-T, because Executive Education classes are non-credit programs.
