What is your refund policy?
Refunds will not be given after January 31, 2017.
Can I get a printed copy of the SAOC syllabus before arriving in San Antonio for the course?
No. The syllabus is finalized right before the course so there is no time for advanced distribution. However, there will be a PDF copy of the syllabus posted on this website just prior to the beginning of the course.
Can I get a copy of the lectures or slides used by the presenters?
No. We cannot and will not provide copies of the lectures or slides to attendees.
Can I bring my laptop to the course?
Yes. Power strips in the conference room will be available but not everyone will be able to access them at the same time. Long lasting portable devices (tablets) are recommended.
What does the registration fee cover?
The registration fee covers your attendance for the lecture portion at the 5-day course. It includes one electronic color copy of the syllabus downloadable from this website, morning refreshments and afternoon power breaks. Extra syllabi may be available at an additional charge. Registration does not include lunch or dinner, the cost of travel, hotel room or transportation to and from the airport. The Mock Orals course is an additional fee. You do not have to attend the lecture portion of SAOC in order to attend the Mock Orals course or vice versa.
A black and white paper copy of the syllabus is available for a nominal cost ($10) on the registration site.
Can I bring a tape recorder to the course?
Yes, audio recording is allowed; video is not.
What time should I schedule my departing flight?
We try to end the course by 1:00 pm (5pm for optional Mock Orals) on Friday to facilitate flight departures. The hotel is five minutes from the airport. Hotel rooms are available for Saturday stays to accommodate airline arrangements.
If I fail the board exam can I get a refund for the course?
