Registration & Cancellation


Registration Account

In order to register for any SLIG program, course, or event (including addition to a waiting list), you will be required to acknowledge that you agree to these policies at the time you set up a “SLIG Registration Account.”

This account is separate from any other UGA account you may have (membership, special interest groups, mailing lists, etc.) and will only be used for program registration and course management; lodging reservations are processed separately.

You may set up this account any time prior to registering; only one account is required to register for all SLIG programs in the upcoming year. You must use the email address connected to your UGA membership account in order to receive UGA member discounts.

You may access this account at any time to update your information and review or modify program selections or contact information.


SLIG cancellation policies are intended to protect the integrity of the programs and meet all financial commitments. We acknowledge that last minute changes may occur due to illness or accident and encourage participants to consider purchasing travel insurance (to include the cost of tuition and lodging) if they feel they might be at risk of cancelling after the cancellation deadline or after arrival.
