Cancelling and Refunding Club memberships

You can refund payments made by parents when signing their child up for a club. To be able to give refunds and cancellations you'll need the Finance: Administer or Extra-Curricular: Administer permissions.

The types of refunds and membership cancellations you can perform will depend on whether the club is a free or paid club. We'll go through each of the examples, and see how a full refund, partial refund, and cancellation can be issued in each case.

 

Cancelling a free club membership

For a free club, as no payments were made, you can easily cancel membership to the selected session.

How to cancel membership to a free club

First, go to School > Activities > Clubs and select the club. Scroll down to the Club Participants section.

Click the membership you want to cancel.

Cancelling a paid club membership

Please note that payments made via Cash, Cheque or Bank Transfer can only be refunded via Cash or Check, and payments made via Card can only be refunded by Card.

Refunds made via Cash or Cheque logged in Arbor are merely a log of the transaction. It is the responsibility of your school to ensure the refund is actually paid outside of Arbor.

Go to School > Activities > Clubs and select the club. Scroll down to the Club Participants section.

Click the membership you want to cancel.
