NO SHOW FEE: This is one of our most popular workshops and we must run a full session of 24 students. No shows are costly for our program and, most importantly, leave students on the waiting list. Students who register and do not show up will be charged a $25 no show fee. To avoid this fee, please cancel at least 48h in advance by e-mailing graduate.pathways@ubc.ca. This will allow us to add someone from the waiting list and run a full session. If we are able to fill your spot from the waiting list, you will not be charged.
