Cancellation Policy for Individual Courses

Refund and exchange eligibility at DCIE is determined by the date you make your refund request relative to the start date of the course or certificate program. Based on our policy below, you are entitled to a 100% refund of the tuition paid when you cancel at least 8 days prior to course start date, 75% refund between 4 and 7 days before the course starts, and no longer eligible for a refund if the written request for a refund is submitted less then 3 days (72 hours) before the course start date.

Cancellation requests received more than 8 days prior to class start date 100% Refund
Cancellation requests received between 4 and 7 days of class start date 75% Refund
Cancellation requests received less than 3 days (72 hours) before class start date No Refund

The start date is defined as 12:00 am (midnight) on the day the course/program begins, not the time at which it starts during the day.

The University reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any program with insufficient enrollment or for reasons beyond our control. In any such cases, a full refund of fees and deposits will be made. Before a refund can be issued, verification of your payment, confirmation of the pertaining records and administrative review and approval must be completed. While we will expedite your refund request, please allow a minimum of 45 days for processing.


The University of Miami reserves the right to change any provision or requirement, including fees, at any time, with or without notice. Degrees, courses, programs, activities, and academic or nonacademic offerings of UM may also be changed from time to time without notice. The university reserves the right to require a student to withdraw at any time under appropriate procedure. Further, admission of a student to the University of Miami for a semester does not imply that the student will be enrolled in any succeeding academic semester. The university also reserves the right to propose probation on any student whose conduct is unsatisfactory. Any admission on the basis of false statements or documents is void when the fraud is discovered, and the student is not entitled to any credit for work completed at the university. When a student is dismissed or suspended from the University for cause, there will be no refund of tuition and fees paid. If a dismissed student has paid only a part of his/her tuition and fees, the balance due the university will be considered a receivable and will be collected.



The University of Miami Parking & Transportation is responsible for parking & transportation policies. UM would like to facilitate your visit to our beautiful campus. Please familiarize yourself with parking and mobility options.


Our campus has a Metrorail stop which makes for a convenient visit. From the University Metrorail stop, you are able to get a shuttle or MetroBus to get you close to Lau Founders Hall offices. From the Metrorail stop, take bus 56 south and exit at San Amaro Dr. It’s a 3 minute walk to our offices.


Please be reminded that you can avoid bringing a vehicle on campus by taking advantage of one or more of the many alternative transportation options by visiting We strongly encourage OLLI members to rideshare, carpool, ride with a friend, use a rideshare service (like Lyft or Uber) or take public transportation to our campus location! The OLLI staff are happy to give you information about setting up a rideshare service on your Smart Phone.  Our OLLI Café/kitchen area is a great place to find a carpool buddy, or you can use a rideshare service.

Short-Term Parking Options

Street Parking is available depending on the time of day. Pay-by-the-hour parking spaces are available along San Amaro Drive. These parking meters are under the jurisdiction of the City of Coral Gables. Spaces fill up early.

Campus Parking Options

Parking on the University of Miami campus in UM lots is extremely limited. All vehicles parked on the University of Miami campus are required to display a UM parking permit from 8:00am to 4:00pm from Monday through Friday. OLLI members may purchase a discounted Gray Zone parking permit from the UM Parking Department. You can find all the details on their website: There is a cost for the full year, and prices are prorated weekly. Permits expire on August 15 each year. The OLLI parking permit allows you to park in the Gray Zone lots around Lau Founders Hall and any other nearby lots where signs specify the Gray Zone. The parking permit does guarantee you will find a parking space. You will be required to show your OLLI membership card and valid vehicle registration when purchasing a permit. Call the UM Parking Department at 305-284-3096 for more details and hours of operation. There is also metered street parking within walking distance of Lau Founders Hall.

Please Note: The Gray Zone is in the vicinity of the Newman Alumni Center, which hosts events on a regular basis throughout the year. This will often result in certain lots being closed to regular permit holders. When this happens, we will notify you ahead of time and provide alternative parking arrangements. Please keep this in mind when considering a Gray Zone permit.
