IB Registration Policy
All of CASIE’s IB workshop registrations are made through our online registration system, linked from this website. See the bottom of this page to find out what you will need to know/have on hand to register. Once the registration is complete, the registrant – as well as the listed IB Coordinator and billing contact – will receive a confirmation email. Until you are registered and confirmed in our system, we cannot guarantee a seat in your desired workshop.
If the workshop is full when you register, you can join a waitlist, linked at the top of the page. There is no guarantee that a seat will open up; but if it does, we will contact you and offer the option to accept the seat, at which point, payment would be due.
In general, registration will close one week before the event start date. For special consideration after that, please contact email@example.com.
FAQ: I’m sure I completed the registration, but I haven’t received the confirmation email . . .
A: You may have inadvertently entered a typo in your email address. Check with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FAQ: My District requires a quote before I can register …
A: Contact email@example.com to get a quote but remember that until you are fully registered in our system, your seat is not guaranteed.
FAQ: I need to send some people for training, but I don’t know who can go yet. Can I just hold some places and let you know later?
A: This is handled on a case-by-case basis. Check with firstname.lastname@example.org.
FAQ: By the way, what is CASIE?
A: CASIE (pronounced “KAY-see”) is The Center for the Advancement & Study of International Education. We are an Atlanta, Georgia-based non-profit organization founded in 1999. CASIE expands innovative practices that educate for active global citizenship. We are a long-time partner and official authorized workshop provider of the International Baccalaureate Organization.
When in doubt about event registration, please contact our Registration Manager at email@example.com.
PAYMENT IS DUE PRIOR TO THE EVENT*
The confirmation email you received after finishing your registration has a link to your invoice to assist in your payment. If you did not pay for your registration at the time you made it, the balance shown on your invoice is due 60 days from your registration date.
Payment can be made by check, credit card [there is a link in the confirmation email to pay in the system], or by wire/ACH bank transfer. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request wiring instructions.
FAQ: Is it possible to get a group invoice for multiple teachers? CASIE needs to register/update in our system to initiate the payment process . . . We need an invoice that has the PO number on it . . . We need your W-9 . . .
A: For these and similar payment-related questions, needs, and issues, please contact email@example.com.
FAQ: I can’t seem to make the credit card link work . . .
A: You can also call us with the card information, and we can enter it from our end – 404-848-9044, x4.
FAQ: Can I pay with a PO?
A: CASIE certainly accepts POs and considers them a confirmation of the registration and an indication that payment will be forthcoming, but we do require actual payment in hand – check, credit card, or wire transfer – prior to all of our events.
* Exceptions with proof/confirmation of future timely payment will be considered on a case-by-case basis
Cancellation & Refunds
By completing this registration, you are committing to paying the registration fee.
If you cancel your registration two months or more prior to the event date, you will receive a refund minus a $100 cancellation fee. There are no refunds with less than two months' cancellation notice.
Registrations may be transferred within an event to someone else from the school (and, sometimes, from the same district). Transfers across workshops within an event depend on the availability of seats in the desired workshop. Please see below section for more details.
No-shows at an event will not be refunded for any reason. No exceptions.
Substitutions & Course Changes
To request a registration name transfer or a workshop substitution please fill out this form.
Attendee substitutions may be requested through the above form up to one week before the workshop start date. Attendee substitutions will not be finalized until you receive written confirmation from CASIE.
Workshop substitutions are subject to availability of seats in the desired workshop. Workshop substitutions will not be finalized until you receive written confirmation from CASIE.
In instances where CASIE offers both virtual and face-to-face workshops in the same year, registration transfers will not be possible between these types of events. Registration transfers are only possible between the same type of events within a calendar year. Registration transfers across calendar years are also not possible.
Full attendance is required to receive a certificate of completion.
If you miss any instructional time, for any reason, you will still leave our workshops with a great deal of valuable knowledge; but you will not receive a certificate of attendance. Due to strict IB policies, CASIE cannot issue certificates for partial workshop completion.
CASIE will email a certificate of attendance to each participant who completes our workshops, generally within two weeks of the end of the workshop. If two weeks have elapsed from event and you have not received your certificate via email, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FAQ: I’m registered and paid; how do I log in?
A: We will email the login information and other workshop details one week before the event begins.
FAQ: My wifi connection went down, and I missed day three …
A: We certainly sympathize regarding the limits and foibles of technology; however, as indicated above, we are not permitted to give partial credit.
Here’s what you need to know/have to register:
Your desired workshop and the category level. Please visit the IB’s website for workshop descriptions and guidelines. The IB provides very specific guidance as to who should take which workshop category. If you are uncertain, consult with your IB Coordinator (IBC) and/or department head.
Your IB School Code. Your IBC should be able to provide you with your school's unique IB School Code, but the code can also be found on the IB’s website. On the home page, go to the “Find an IB World School” section at the bottom and search the name by Keywords. [If registering from a candidate school, list n/a as your school code.]
Your IBC’s name and contact information and the name and contact information for the billing contact (the person responsible for payment).
Your school's preferred payment method (this can be changed after registration if need be).
To register additional teachers from the same school . . . click "Add Another" at the end of the form for each registrant. Once you are done with all of them, be sure to click "Finish" at the end of the form to complete the registration. A group confirmation email will be sent. If you require a single invoice for your group, please email email@example.com.
