Policies and Information

EDUCATION POLICIES

Continuing education with MSCPA provides a comprehensive learning plan to help develop and grow professionally. We strive to provide superb customer service and innovative continuing education for MSCPA members and others associated with MSCPA. MSCPA is registered with the Mississippi State Board of Public Accountancy as a sponsor of continuing professional education.

PRICING

The member rate is available to MSCPA members (membership is on an individual basis—not through one’s firm). CPAs who are not members of the MSCPA may register by paying the non-member rate.
If you are an AICPA member and register for an AICPA produced seminar (noted in each seminar description), you are eligible for a $30 discount per eight-hour day. This discount is applied automatically to online registrations given that your AICPA membership information is updated in our database.

COURSE MATERIALS

Upon course registration, registrants are asked if they prefer to have a printed manual in addition to the e-materials. Links to the e-materials will be listed with your course registrations in your account on the MSCPA website seven calendar days before the course. You will receive an e-mail when the materials are available. It is your responsibility to maintain a current e-mail address with the MSCPA.

If you request printed materials upon registration, it will be available for pick up at the registration desk on the date of the class. The option to request printed materials is only available up to 5 business days prior to the course date. Walk-in registrants and those registering between 1 and 5 days before the course will be sent an electronic link to the e-materials by default. “Extra” printed course materials will not be available on site. Printed materials are not available for conferences.

EVENT CONFIRMATIONS

You will receive an email confirmation for all MSCPA event registrations. Please review your confirmation for accuracy and any special instructions. When registering online, course confirmations are emailed immediately following online registrations. If you do not receive an email confirmation immediately, your registration was not successful. When registering by mail or fax, a confirmation will be sent via email when your registration has been successfully processed. In the event that your confirmation is not received within 2-3 days, please contact our office.

COURSE CANCELLATIONS

Courses may be cancelled by MSCPA one week prior to the course date if they fail to meet the minimum attendance requirement. In the event of a cancellation, you will be notified and given the option of transferring to another course or receiving a full refund.

TRANSFERS, CANCELLATIONS, SUBSTITUTIONS AND REFUNDS

There is no fee for cancellations or transfers made more than seven days prior to the event. Cancellations made one to seven calendar days before the event will receive a fifty percent refund. Those made the day of the event forfeit the entire registration fee. A participant may also substitute his/her registration to another member without penalty.

MSCPA issues refunds if cancellation is made seven calendar days prior to the scheduled date of the course. MSCPA can also transfer the balance to the appropriate account (person or firm) to be held for future MSCPA purchases.

WEBINAR AND WEBCAST CANCELLATION POLICIES

Cancellations made one business day prior to the event or after will forfeit the entire registration fee.

SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS

In accordance with the American Disabilities Act (ADA), the MSCPA will try to reasonably accommodate anyone disabled and in need of special services. If registering by fax or mail, please indicate on the registration form that you require special services. If registering online, please contact our office. Please call our office if you have special dietary requirements.

DRESS RECOMMENDATIONS

Attire is business casual. Participants may want to wear layered clothing to allow for comfort throughout the day, as the temperature in the meeting room fluctuates.
