Registration Modifications:

Cancellations

Cancellations made sixty (60) days prior to the course will receive a full refund. A full refund, less a $50.00 cancellation fee, is granted if notification of cancellation is received between 11 and 60 days prior. If notice of cancellation is received one to ten days prior to the course or conference date, the registration fee, less a $50.00 cancellation fee will be transferred to money on account at the KSCPA for future learning. Contact the KSCPA at 785-272-4366 to use this money on account balance.

No Shows

Entire registration fee and materials are forfeited by no shows.

Transfers

Any transfers made one to ten days prior to course or conference day will incur a $50.00 administrative fee.

Substitutions

Substitutions of participants within the same firm are not subject to an administrative fee.

Money on Account

Money on account will expire after one year from the cancellation date. Expired amounts will be contributed to the Educational Foundation of the KSCPA or, for members, the amount can be applied to their next dues payment if unable to be used for CPE by the expiration date.

Materials:

Unless otherwise noted, Materials for all courses and conferences will be provided electronically at least one week prior to the course or conference date. Participants are responsible for printing their materials, but are encouraged to bring laptops or other mobile devices with them. If you do not receive your materials at least one week prior to the program, please contact the KSCPA at 785-272-4366.

CPE Credit:

CPE credit is granted to participants based on the times indicated on the attendance records provided at the registration tables at each KSCPA sponsored course and conference. It is the participant’s responsibility to record accurate information on the attendance records. In order to be eligible to receive full credit, participants must arrive on time and stay for the entire duration of the course or conference.

Yellow Book Credit:

Certain courses or conference sessions may qualify for Yellow Book CPE credit. Determining which courses or sessions qualify for the Yellow Book 24-hour requirement are made on an auditor specific basis depending on the auditor's Yellow Book clients. Please visit www.gao.gov/yellowbook for specific requirements.

Certificates of Completion:

Certificates of completion will be e-mailed to participants within one week following the course. It is the participant's responsibility to ensure the KSCPA has an up-to-date e-mail address on file.

If the fee for the program is not paid, the certificate of completion may be held until payment is received.

Program Details:

Topics, speakers, and programming are subject to change. Individuals already registered for the course or conference will be notified of any changes.

Confirmations:

A confirmation will be sent via e-mail when your registration has been successfully processed. In the event your confirmation is not received, please contact the KSCPA at 785-272-4366.

Late Fees:

Any registration less than 10 days prior to the course or conference will incur a $50 convenience fee.

AICPA Discount:

AICPA members who register for an AICPA/KSCPA sponsored program will receive a $30 per course discount off the applicable course fee for 8-hour courses. This discount is available until the date of the course and cannot be applied retroactively.
