Cancellation and Refund Policy

Click here to view the AAO's Convocation cancellation and refund policy.

The American Academy of Osteopathy reserves the right to cancel an educational program if an insufficient number of physicians register. Sufficient registrations must be received 30 days prior to the opening of the course. If you are considering registering for a course less than 30 days prior to the opening, contact the Academy office before making travel plans. In the event of course cancellation due to lack of registrations, all registration money will be refunded.

Cancellations from participants received in writing and signed 30 or more days before the course opening may receive an 80 percent refund of their registration fee.

For cancellations received in writing less than 30 days before the course opening, registrants may transfer 80 percent of their registration fee to another course to be held within the next 12 months.

Registrants who fail to appear for an AAO program can transfer up to 50 percent of their registration fee to another AAO educational program to be held within the next 12 months if a written and signed explanation is received at the AAO office within 10 days of the scheduled course. All other cancellations will receive no refund or transfer of registration fees.
