FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What are my payment options?

For tuition-based courses or events, either in-person or online, payment is due upon registration. You may easily pay via credit card through the online registration system. Upon payment, you will receive an enrollment confirmation email and will have access to course information through the University of Pretrial.


If you prefer to pay by check, simply choose the “pay by check” option during online registration. In this case, your space in the course or event will be reserved; however, you will not have access to course materials until tuition is paid in full. If payment has not been received 48 hours prior to the opening date of the course or event, your registration will be cancelled so we may open up the spot for another participant.  

What if I need an invoice or other documentation for my employer?

No problem! Questions regarding invoices or requests for W-9 documents can be directed to up@pretrial.org.

Oops, I’m no longer able to attend the course. May I cancel my registration or transfer it to someone else?

Transfer: Your course or event registration is transferable, at no charge, up to 48 hours prior to the start of the course or event. To transfer your registration, send an email to up@pretrial.org and provide the following information:

  • Your name
  • The email address associated with your University of Pretrial account
  • The course for which you are requesting a transfer
  • Substitute’s name
  • The email address associated with the substitute’s University of Pretrial account

Note: The person you wish to transfer your registration to must have a University of Pretrial account for us to complete their registration. For in-person events, individuals are responsible for changing or cancelling any lodging or travel arrangements, and for any expenses and fees incurred as a result of this change.

Cancellation: For tuition-based courses or events, either in-person or online, the following cancellation and refund policies apply:

  • Up to 60 days prior to the course start date: Participants can request a full refund.
  • Up to 30 days prior to the course start date: Participants can request a refund of 50% of the tuition amount.
  • Less than 30 days prior to the course start date: Refunds are no longer available.  

To request a refund, please send an email to up@pretrial.org and provide the following information:

  • Your name
  • The email address associated with your University of Pretrial account
  • The course for which you are requesting a refund
  • A billing contact, if applicable
  • The name and email address of the original payee, if different from registrant

Refunds will be processed within 30 days to the original form of payment.
 
If PJI reschedules a course or event due to circumstances beyond our control, participants’ registration will automatically be transferred to the new event date, and participants will be offered a window of time in which to request a refund. If PJI cancels a course or event, participants’ registration fees will be automatically refunded. 
 
PJI reserves the right to cancel any course or event and refund participants’ tuition if minimum enrollment is not met. For online courses or events, cancellations will be made no less than seven days in advance of the scheduled start date. For in-person courses or events, cancellations will be made no less than fourteen days in advance of the scheduled start date. If an in-person event is rescheduled or cancelled, participants are responsible for cancelling their own lodging or travel arrangements, and for any expenses and fees incurred as a result of this cancellation.


Do you offer continuing education units (CEUs)? 

PJI does not offer CEUs at this time; however, attorneys who would like to get CEUs may be able to do so through their state bar association. PJI can provide the documentation (e.g. faculty bios, course outline and hours, etc.) for this purpose.

May I audit the courses? 

Yes! (However the tuition is the same.) 

Are there scholarships available? 

PJI is occasionally able to offer scholarships for specific learning events. Please check course descriptions for opportunities and eligibility criteria.
