A NOTE FROM PROJECT GRADUATION TO THE CLASS OF 2021
We understand that there is some confusion about the ʻnon-refundableʻ clause when signing up for Project Graduation and with the extenuating circumstances, we understand your concern.
The ʻnon-refundableʻ clause would apply when the event is not cancelled and students who have paid and registered for Project Graduation change their mind about attending.
If Project Graduation is cancelled due to cirumstances beyond the committee’s control, then all registrations will be refunded. So please, sign up today!
Registration is now open for Project Grad 2021. Despite the uncertainties of COVID, we are still planning for an amazing event to follow the Class of 2021’s graduation on Friday, May 21, 2021.
Register by December 21st to receive the discounted registration fee of $175.00. Registration forms can be found online at: PG21 Registration Form. Payment can be made by check/money order or credit card (online at PG21 Online Payment). No cash, please.
