When I registered, I received a message that my confirmation is on hold to obtain proper validation. What does this mean?

Because Ellucian Live 2017 is a customer-focused event, we restrict attendance to current Ellucian customers on valid maintenance agreements, Ellucian employees, approved third-party consultants, partners, and invited guests. We simply need time to confirm that you fall into one of these categories. Ellucian Live Customer Service will be contacting you within five business days after you registered to gather any additional information.

What is your cancellation policy?

What is your substitution policy?

A full conference, single day, or Ellucian Degree Works™ Forum substitution may be made at any time for a paid-in-full registrant from the same institution. A pre-conference training substitution from the same institution must be made prior to 30 days before the session (February 17, 2017). There is a $50 processing fee on all substitutions which must be paid via credit card at the time the substitution is processed.

What is the payment policy to ensure that my registration fee is not increased?

Your registration must be paid in full by the early-bird 1 price (December 16, 2016), early-bird 2 price (December 17–February 10), and regular price (February 11 and beyond) deadlines in order to receive the pricing for those discounts. If you are paying by check, please note that the check must be postmarked by the corresponding deadline date in order to receive that pricing. You may pay any balance online via credit card by accessing your account. If you are paying by check, please include a copy of your invoice. If your institution is paying for multiple invoices with one check, a copy of each invoice being paid must accompany the payment. A purchase order is not an accepted form of payment. If you arrive onsite with a balance due, you will be required to pay the full onsite price for your registration package.

What is the Ellucian Executive Forum and how can I attend it?

The Ellucian Executive Forum 2017 is fee-based and held independently from Ellucian Live 2017.

The forum focuses on how executives can effectively address today’s landmark challenges while continuing to ensure student success.
