Pre-payment is the preferred method of payment for courses. If your employer is paying your workshop or certificate fee, please enclose a copy of your purchase order, and PDC will invoice you. If a student is enrolling in a workshop payment is due within 30 days. If a student is enrolling in a Certificate Program, payment has to be received within 30 days of enrollment. Students enrolled in a Certificate Program, will not receive their Certificate of Completion until payment is received in full. If you are paying the fees yourself, we must receive payment before the program begins. The fee includes all materials, unless noted. Please make checks payable to The University of Texas at Austin. The Professional Development Center (PDC) reserves the right to change a fee for any course or program on this web site. Please keep in mind that payment of tuition and fees are the responsibility of the student. In the event the employer or sponsor does not make full payment, all charges and late fees will be returned to and be the responsibility of the student.


Once you submit a registration form, you have agreed to pay all course fees. Registration is complete once we receive payment. At that time, we will mail a receipt. If you do not receive a receipt within 10 days of sending in payment, call (512) 471-4633 to confirm your registration. Please retain your confirmation of enrollment and payment for tax purposes.

Course Cancellations

PDC reserves the right to substitute instructors, change program dates, and cancel programs due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen events. PDC is not responsible for any expenses incurred before the start of a program, e.g., airline tickets, hotel, or car rental. If PDC cancels a course, you may request a tuition transfer to another course within the same semester or a full refund (allow three to four weeks from the date of the request).
