  • Education Event Policies

    • Enrollment is subject to receipt of an online registration from each participant. The registration fee provides for program costs and meals. Pursuant to grant conditions, the registration fee is mandatory and returned to the grant to be spent as restricted funds. If you or your county cannot pay this fee, please contact Thea Whalen at to receive a waiver. 

      The Texas State overhead assessment fee is a voluntary fee deposited into TJCTC's private fund account and is used for unrestricted activity expenses that the grant cannot cover, such as salaries, benefits, and excess food and lodging costs. 

      The breakdown between the fees is detailed on your invoice that is emailed to you once registered. The registration fee should be paid in full prior to the state of the event. 

    • The lodging fee is a fee that covers your portion of the hotel cost if you choose to have a single room. This fee is consistent for every event at $55 based on the lowest rate of any hotel that TJCTC uses. There is no lodging fee if you choose double occupancy or no room. 

    • Once payment is received, a confirmation letter with hotel and event information will be emailed to you.

    • TJCTC will provide a catered breakfast and lunch on the second day of the seminar and a full breakfast buffet on the last day. You will be on your own for dinner each night.

    • Attendees must print their own handouts. All handouts will be available to download through your TJCTC Profile two weeks prior to the event with updates being made throughout the year. If you anticipate changing into another class onsite, please consider printing those handouts as well. Wifi is not provided in the meeting rooms.

    • If your program gets canceled due to the pandemic, you will receive a full refund.
