Enrollment Policies

Due to high demand and the limited number of seats, enrollment in Wharton Leadership Ventures is taken very seriously. The expectation is that once you confirm, you will attend the venture.  WLV does not offer refunds. Please read the following policies regarding enrollment and cancellation carefully to avoid penalties.

Enrollment Policies: Workshops Only

Spring 2017 Workshops

  • Only first years who are No-Shows (less than 2 days notice of dropping) for Workshops will have CourseMatch budget reduced.
  • Students will be notified if they received a workshop at the close of CourseMatch and when they have been added from the waitlist.
  • During the Add/Drop period of CourseMatch, students are responsible for monitoring their CourseMatch enrollments and waitlist positions/statuses during this time. They should check back regularly to see if they have been enrolled in any programs that they are/were waitlisted for.
  • After less than 2 days from a Workshop, students who withdraw from a workshop in which they are enrolled, fail to attend, or leave the workshop before its completion jeopardize their enrollment in future McNulty Leadership Program offerings.  First-year students in this position also run the risk of incurring a reduced Course Match budget in their second year.
  • Students from a program’s waitlist will be contacted via email if spots become available. Students are responsible for monitoring their waitlisted items and dropping prior to the deadline if they can no longer attend.

Enrollment Policies (Intensives):

  • First year students participating in Quantico or FDNY will have their second year CourseMatch budget reduced.
  • Students will be notified if they are selected to participate in an intensive at the close of CourseMatch or if they are pulled from the waitlist.
  • During the Add/Drop period of CourseMatch, students are responsible for monitoring their CourseMatch enrollments and waitlist positions/statuses during this time. They should check back regularly to see if they have been enrolled in any programs that they are/were waitlisted for.
  • Payment is due in full by the designated payment deadlines at 5pm EST for all participants.
  • Payments are non-refundable.
  • Students who do not pay in full by the payment deadline will be dropped from Intensive enrollment, and the next student on the waitlist will be enrolled.
  • If a student is invited to participate in the Intensive less than one week before the Intensive date, payment is due upon confirmation of enrollment.
  • Any participants pulled from the waitlist generated by CourseMatch will be notified via CourseMatch email.
  • Students selected off the waitlist will be contacted by the Venture Fellow assigned to Intensives and will have 24 hours to confirm attendance in the Venture and submit payment.
  • The McNulty Leadership Program reserves the right to reduce the second year CourseMatch budget amount for first year students who do not participate in an intensive after registration is closed.

Participation in a WLV Intensive is non-transferable.

Enrollment Policies: Expeditions Only

  • First year students participating in an Expedition will have their CourseMatch budget reduced in their second year.
  • Students can continue to drop Expeditions after CourseMatch closes without penalty.
  • Students have until the specified payment deadline to pay in full for the Expedition.
  • Expedition Scholarships:  Expedition scholarships are based entirely on financial need. Students will be notified if they are eligible for a scholarship.  We recommend that students also explore back-up financing options if needed during this period.  
  • If students find they cannot finance the Expedition, they have until the payment deadline to drop the expedition in CourseMatch.
  • Students who do not pay in full by the payment deadline risk being dropped from venture enrollment.
  • After the payment deadline, students will be enrolled to Expeditions using the waitlists produced by CourseMatch.  Students selected off the waitlist will be contacted via email and will have 24 hours to confirm attendance and pay for their expedition and will be held to the Expedition Enrollment Policies.
  • All students participating in an Expedition are required to purchase Travel Insurance from iTravelInsured -Travel LX as WLV does not provide refunds.
  • Participation in a WLV Expedition is non transferable.
