ASRT Refund Policy

  • Educational Product Refunds

    Online Education Products

    The ASRT does not accept returns or exchanges of online education products. Because the value of online educational products rests not only in the CE credits earned, but with the information contained within the product, continuing education products in any format cannot be refunded or exchanged once purchased. Samples are available for many of our online educational products to help you make an informed purchasing decision. If you do not see a sample available online, please call 800-444-2778 to request a sample before purchasing the product.

    Hybrid Products

    The ASRT accepts cancellations of memberships purchased alongside CE products. We will refund an amount equal to the difference between the cost of the membership and the nonmember price of items purchased at the same time as the membership. Refunds are applied within 30 days.

    Physical Products

    The ASRT accepts returns or exchanges of physical products within 60 days of purchase. Please call 800-444-2778 to initiate the refund or exchange process. We will replace or issue a full refund plus shipping costs for all items damaged during shipping that are returned with a shipping receipt within 60 days of purchase. For undamaged or unused items returned within 60 days, we will apply a restocking fee of $5 or 20 percent of the invoice total, whichever is greater. Shipping costs are not covered for return of undamaged items. Refunds are applied within four to six weeks based on your method of payment.

    Only items that have been purchased directly from the ASRT Store are eligible to be returned. Opened software is not eligible to be returned. All products must be returned in reasonable condition without wear or damage. ASRT reserves the right to deny any return if it fails to meet the Return Policy conditions.

    • ASRT store credit toward another learning activity of equal CE credits.

  • Membership Refunds

    The ASRT will issue refunds for memberships canceled within 30 days after the membership application or renewal is processed. A $15 processing fee will be deducted from the refund, as well as the $10 application fee and any secondary chapter fees. The value of CE credits completed from Directed Reading articles during the membership period will be deducted from the refund. Calculation of completed CE credits will be based on a $10-per-credit value. The refund will not exceed the price of the membership.

  • Request for Approval (RFA) Refunds

    The ASRT does not offer refunds for any RFA that has been reviewed. Refunds are not offered for denied activities. The $5 per-credit fee is nonrefundable. A $45 handling fee will be deducted from refunds issued for an RFA that has been received but is withdrawn by its sponsor before our review. If there is a difference between the requested credit amount and the approved credit amount for a self-learning activity, the difference in the RFA fee will be refunded or additional payment may be needed. Overpayments of $10 or less will not be refunded unless requested. Priority handling, or rush fees, are not refundable.

  • Conferences and Event Refunds
