When making reservations outside of a room block, ask for the College of Charleston rate.

The cost of this class is $2,250 (we are offering this package at a discounted rate, a savings of $170 off the individual prices for these 4 classes)

Reminder: This class combines the Title IX Investigator Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 5 classes that are typically offered virtually.

Payment Options

We are currently not able to accept credit card payments, so all payments must be made in the form of a manual check.

Upon submission of the registration form on the next page, the system will automatically send the attendee a confirmation of class enrollment. The email will also provide a W-9 form to enable the attendee to pay the invoice. (Please note: If you register for a 2024 class in 2023, a confirmation email will be sent immediately, but an invoice will not be sent to until early December).

The registration system allows the attendee to register themselves, or the system will allow a person to complete the registration on the attendee’s behalf. The attendee (or the person registering on the attendee’s behalf) will have an option in the system to request that confirmation be emailed to someone other than the attendee, if desired. Payment instructions and an invoice will be sent to this person via email, as requested.

The invoice must be paid within 6 weeks of the invoice date, so we ask that the invoice be processed by the institution immediately upon receipt.

If you do not receive a confirmation email within 1 business day, you want to consolidate invoices, or you need additional paperwork to process payment, please send an email to The DSA Team for assistance. Please be sure to check your “junk mail” or “spam” folders prior to contacting us if you are missing the confirmation email.
