How to Enroll

Register online

To register for a class or event, go to the Training Schedule and click on the name of the class you want to enroll in. Make sure the class description page has the date and location you want, then click the Register Yourself or the Register Someone Else button under the Registration heading. The electronic system will guide you through the registration process. If you have questions or need assistance, please call the Registrar at 510-643-4393.

Register by mail or fax

You can also register for a class or event using a Registration Form. Please complete a separate Registration Form for each individual and each class. Submit your completed Registration Forms with any supporting documentation and payment according to the directions on the form.

How to pay your registration fee

Registration is not confirmed until payment is received. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit cards, purchase orders, and checks. 

Using a credit card

Register online and follow the instructions to use a credit card for payment.  

Using a purchase order

Fax or mail your completed Registration Form with your signed PO attached.

Using a check

Mail your completed Registration Form with a check payable to UC REGENTS.

Using a Letter of Authorization

A Letter of Authorization for Payment (LOA) may be accepted before payment arrives to ensure your seat will be held. Tech Transfer will confirm your place in a class upon receipt of a Letter of Authorization from your supervisor, stating you have been authorized to attend training and indicating when the agency's payment will be made. To register using an LOA, follow these instructions.

Registration confirmation

Confirmation will be sent within 2 business days of receiving your paid registration. If you have not received confirmation of your registration one week before the course is scheduled to begin, contact the Registrar by phone 510-643-4393, fax 510-643-1864, or email registrar@techtransfer.berkeley.edu.

Date or location changes

Dates and locations are subject to change. Please confirm this information when you register. In the event a date or location for one of our classes does change, we will make every possible effort to contact students with confirmed registrations using the contact information they provided when they enrolled.  The new dates or location will also be posted in our Training Calendar.  Call us at 510-643-4393 if you have a question.

Course cancellation

The Technology Transfer Program reserves the right to cancel any course. Cancellations are rare, usually occurring at least 10 business days before the course is scheduled to begin. If a course is cancelled, we will make every possible effort to contact students with confirmed registrations using the contact information they provided when they enrolled.  Registration fees will be refunded or credited towards another course. However, the University and the Technology Transfer Program cannot be held liable for loss of accommodation or travel deposits or fares due to cancellation of a course. 

How to cancel your enrollment

If you find you cannot make it to a class, please contact the registrar at registrar@techtransfer.berkeley.edu or 510-643-4393 so someone from the Wait List can take your place. The University reserves the right to charge the full fee for the course if proper notification is not sent to The Technology Transfer Program (see below for Refunds, Credits and Substitutions).

Special conditions and procedures may apply to some classes. Check the class description page for any special procedures before you register.

Credits and substitutions

In lieu of canceling your registration, you have three additional options:

  • You may transfer your registration to another class.
  • You may receive a tuition credit for the full amount, useable toward a future class.
  • You may send a substitute in your place.

To take advantage of any of these options, contact the registrar at least five (5) working days before the class is scheduled to begin.

Refunds

To cancel your registration and receive a refund less a $50 processing fee, you must notify the Technology Transfer Program at least five (5) working days before the course is scheduled to begin. Notification must be made in writing, sent by e-mail to registrar@techtransfer.berkeley.edu or by fax to 510-643-1864. If your agency has paid by check, we will need your agency's federal tax ID number in order to process your refund. We are able to process a refund to your credit card within 60 days of the date of your initial transaction. After 60 days, we can no longer process a refund to the credit card and must issue a check instead.

Class wait lists

If the course you want to take is marked FULL, you may add your name to the wait list by clicking the "Add your name to the wait list" button. Or you may send a request to registrar@techtransfer.berkeley.edu to have your name placed on a wait list. Be sure to provide us with class name, date, and location in your email as well as your email, phone, and fax contact information. We will notify you if a seat becomes available, at which time you can register for the class.

Access

All Tech Transfer sponsored classes and events meet in barrier-free buildings. If you other special needs, please notify the registrar at 510-643-4393 or fax 510-643-1864 at least 3 weeks before the course begins.
