Education Policies

The Society of American Archivists is committed to providing quality continuing education that is relevant and accessible to professional archivists via a variety of delivery methods. The following Education Policies and Procedures are presented for your information.

Product Endorsement

SAA Education will include the following disclaimer statement on any material, including announcements and correspondence, that includes software/tool product name and/or logo:

“The instructor utilizes [name] to facilitate teaching the content of this course/workshop. The use of [product] does not represent or imply SAA endorsement of this product.”

SAA Education encourages the use of software and tools that are open source (i.e., meet the 10 criteria of open-source software).

Participation in Courses/Workshops

Registration for Courses/Workshops

Full payment must accompany registration submissions. Registrations not accompanied by payment will be placed on hold until payment is received. Registrations are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. To avoid being double-billed, do not send your registration via more than one method. To register, participants may submit completed registration forms online, via mail, or via fax (with credit card number). Please do not fax your registration if paying by check.

SAA accepts checks made payable to SAA, as well as credit cards issued by VISA, MasterCard, and American Express. Payment must be made in US funds.

Early Registration Discount

Participants who submit a completed SAA Registration Form with payment at least 30 days prior to the course/workshop start date receive up to a $70 discount, depending on the course/workshop cost and membership status.

Registration Limits

For a course/workshop to be offered, a minimum enrollment based on specific course/workshop expenses must be reached 30 days prior to the course/workshop. Attendance may be limited in certain offerings due to location constraints.

Cancellation

SAA courses/workshops are subject to cancellation 21 days prior to the scheduled date of the event if the minimum enrollment is not attained. Instructors and registered participants will be notified immediately after the 21-day deadline in the event of cancellation; participants will receive a full refund or an opportunity to apply their registration toward another offering.

Refunds and Transfers

Courses/workshops canceled by SAA will result in full and prompt refunds to registered participants. In the event that participants must cancel their registration, the following stipulations apply:

  1. Participants who cancel registration in writing 5 business days prior to the first scheduled day of the course/workshop will receive a full refund minus a $35 administrative fee.
  2. Participants won't receive a refund for a course/workshop if cancellation is received fewer than 5 business days prior to the first scheduled day of the course/workshop.
  3. If you prefer to transfer to an alternate course/workshop, notice is required in writing 5 business days prior to the first scheduled day of the course/workshop; a $15 administrative fee will be applied.
