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
Fees for Colgate’s annual Reunion, which include registration/housing/class banquets, may be refunded up to seven (7) days prior to the event; however two small deductions are non-refundable: the $5 gift to Colgate included in the registration and a $15.00 processing fee. Refunds requested after this date may be considered, however no refunds will be processed until after Reunion.
We try and post all details about Reunion refunds clearly on the registration forms. Once that deadline passes, the policy above will apply.
