Your organizer's refund policy for Intro to Git & GitHub Workshop

Refunds offered if:

  • the Meetup is cancelled
  • the Meetup is rescheduled

Additional notes: Your payment of $20 guarantees your seat in the course. Please note that we cannot issue refunds, since there's an overhead to issuing refunds via Meetup.com and we already offer the workshops at a low cost. We put proceeds into our scholarship fund.

Payments you make go to the organizer, not to Meetup. You must make refund requests to the organizer.

Regardless of the refund policy set by the organizer, Meetup may issue refunds on an organizer's behalf if we determine that Meetup's Payment Policies have been violated.
