As a general policy, fees collected for event registration and other expenses are non-refundable. In most circumstances, these fees cover the cost to reserve a facility or catering needs. However, more importantly, the fees commit and confirm guest attendance which is important when other guests are interested in registering. The staff in the Office of Alumni Relations understands that unique circumstances do prevent some guests from fulfilling their obligations, and accepts written exceptions to the refund policy. Please direct those appeals to the office at 13 Oak Drive, Hamilton, NY 13346. A $5 fee will apply to refunds processed.
Event and Reunion Refund Policies
Colgate's annual Reunion fees cover costs associated with registration/housing/class banquets/weekend programming/etc. Full or partial refunds to previously purchased Reunion weekend packages can be accommodated up to May 18, 2016; however, two small deductions are non-refundable: the $5 gift to Colgate included in the registration price and a $15 processing fee. Please note that the $15 fee is meant to offset costs the Alumni Relations Office incurs each time a monetary transaction is processed. Refunds requested after May 18 will not be considered until after Reunion, and those approved remain subject to the aforementioned non-refundable deductions.
