Cancellation Policy

All NODA membership fees are nonrefundable once payment has been processed. Click to view the Annual Conference Cancellation Policy. If you are an Associate Member, view the Associate Member Annual Conference Cancellation Policy



Do I have to be a NODA member to attend the conference?
Yes, and no. Only graduate students and associate members have to be NODA members to attend the conference. Professionals in the field of orientation, transition, and retention do not have to be members to attend, but do receive a significant discount if they are NODA members. Undergraduate students do not have to be members to attend, and pay the same registration fee whether they are a member or not.

If I can't attend the conference but I purchased a membership to attend, can I be refunded?
Once paid, membership fees are nonrefundable. Depending on the time and date of your cancellation your conference fee may be refundable (see cancellation policy for details).

If I have multiple invoices for registration, can I pay with one check?
Yes! You can most definitely pay with one check, but please include copies of your invoices when you submit payment so we can apply the payment to the correct accounts.

How do I register my graduate student(s) for the conference?
Since graduate students have to be NODA members to attend the conference, they must also register themselves for the conference through their own member profile.

What are my payment options?
While registering for the conference you will have two options for payment, 'pay with a card' or 'pay with a check'. If you choose to 'pay with a check' an invoice will be created for you to pay at a later date. If you choose this option but then decide to pay with a card instead, you can sign in to your member profile, navigate to 'Manage Profile' and then click 'Invoices'. You can pay all open invoices at this page.

How do I register for the Orientation Professionals Institute (OPI)?
Registration for the OPI is separate than registration for the annual conference. You can attend both, but will need to register separately for both events. You can also choose to only attend OPI if you wish.
