In cases of inclement weather, IF West Texas A&M University is open for business on the day of the EXPO/Fair, the event will be held. If the university is closed, the event will not occur.
If a catastrophic event (an act of terrorism, extreme weather conditions, or other similar circumstances) occurs and West Texas A&M University is closed, the EXPO/Fair will be cancelled and registration fees will be refunded.
Refunds will be processed (minus a $25 cancellation fee) if you notify WTAMU Career Services in writing more than 5 working days before the event that you will be unable to participate. If you cancel within 5 working days OR do not attend the EXPO/Fair for any reason, the full registration fee will be due. See individual fairs for the refund amount.
