    Reunion Refund Policy
    Colgate's Reunion fees cover costs associated with registration, housing, meals, programming, and more. Refunds can be accommodated up to May 15, 2023 less a non-refundable $15 processing fee. The $15 processing fee will apply to all cancellations; this fee offsets costs the Office of Alumni Relations incurs each time a monetary transaction is processed. Changes to registration options will not incur a $15 processing fee.

    Refunds requested after May 15 will not be considered until after Reunion. As registration fees are applied to associated event costs, full refunds cannot be guaranteed but health and safety will be taken into consideration. Any refunds approved after Reunion remain subject to the aforementioned non-refundable deductions, as well as additional fees.

    Reunion Cancellation

    As with all of the University’s public-health guidelines, Colgate will continue to monitor the national, state, and local COVID-19 situation, and thus health and safety guidelines remain subject to changes as needed. In the event that Reunion must be postponed, Colgate will offer refunds to those registered. 

    Yes, on-demand shuttle service can be booked through First Transit for trips between campus and Syracuse or Utica.
