Refunds are not provided after the first day of the Project Management Essentials course but if a student falls behind, they may be allowed to transfer to a later section. This option is subject to availability and depends on how much time has passed since the course start date. Purdue reviews transfers on a case-by-case basis and requires students to pay a $400 transfer fee. All transfer requests must be received in writing by the deadline established for each session.

PMP Exam Prep is a self-guided course and there are no refunds. A transfer to a later session may be permitted under rare circumstances. Purdue reviews these requests on a case-by-case basis and requires students to pay a $250 transfer fee.
