Refund Information                                  

Refund:


The CCHM Cancellation Policy will be in effect. Here's a summary and other considerations that affect a refund for ITBS/CogAT testing.


For any CCHM activity for which you register, but subsequently cancel by the posted final date to register, the family will receive a full refund of any payment made, or no money will be owed to CCHM. 

For any CCHM activity for which you register, and subsequently cancel after the posted registration due date but more than 24 hours prior to the field trip or activity starting time posted on the CCHM website calendar, the administrative fee will be $10.

For any CCHM activity for which you register and provide payment, but subsequently cancel within 24 hours or less of the activity starting time posted on the CCHM website calendar, the administrative fee will be $15. In addition, if you fail to show up for the activity without any notification, you will be charged the $15 administrative fee. 

For any family registration whose payment is not received on the listed payment due date, the registration will be deleted.  No longer will a CCHM Leadership Team member contact families to determine their intention for the activity.
                                                                        If your child becomes ill during the testing days after they have taken at least 1 section of the test, we cannot refund any of the testing fee. 
                                                                        Please note that all of the students will be required to sit quietly if they finish before the testing time ends.  If your child is disruptive and continues to be so, they will be removed from the room and not be permitted to return for the remainder of the day's testing.  There will be no refund for any of the unused test sections.
