Course Refund Policy - Pennsylvania Key

There is a no refund policy for course registrations in the Professional Development Registry. However, for funded core, support, and needs-based courses that have not been canceled by Pennsylvania Key or a Regional Key, students who unregister for a scheduled event associated with the course 48 hours or more prior to start date and time of the event may register for another offering (scheduled event instance) of the course without further charges.

For funded core, support and needs-based courses that are canceled by Pennsylvania Key or a Regional Key, students may re-enroll in another offering (scheduled event instance) of the course without any additional charge. As of November 15, 2017, the PA Regional Keys can no longer give out course catalog credit because of the state readying information to switch over to a new registry in February 2017. However, the PA Key wants to make sure that anyone who has pre-paid for a cancelled class gets reimbursed. Anyone needing reimbursed, please send an email with the course name to registry@pakeys.org. Also, please note, all students who already have a course credit should use it by December 31, 2017. If you are unable to use this, you can also contact the state at registry@pakeys.org. Resources and short webinars to assist you in finding a course, registering for a course, and paying for a course can be found under the PD Registry Home Page "Professional Development Registry Student Policies" when visiting the PD Registry website www.pakeys.org . For further questions, please contact 1-800-284-6031.
