Coronavirus update 4-15-2020
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Carl Holmes executive development Institute created a coronavirus task force, the purpose of this task force was to weigh the best possible courses of action. The task force closely monitored the progression of the pandemic and decided: for the first time in nearly 30 years, the Carl Holmes executive development Institute will not be physically attending the summer semester in New Orleans.
There were several factors that led to this decision:
- Many municipalities are restricting is members, both students and instructors are not being permitted leave their respective cities, therefore participation would have been limited.
- Rescheduling would prove to be impractical, due to furlough schedules, plane tickets, and availability of Dillard University.
- In the end, it is the right thing to do.
We have opted to forgo the 2020 Year of EDI and pick up in 2021. There will be no option to register on EDI’s Website after April 15, 2020. Like many schools and institutions, we will post online material such as blogs and other educational material for the benefit of the students. Only students that are currently registered will be able to access this material. This is to prevent outside entities from accessing information reserved for EDI students only.
Refunds or Rollovers
Students will have the option to roll their current payments into the 2021 semester or have the option to request a full refund providing the refund form is submitted prior to June 10, 2020.
ALL REQUEST FOR ROLLOVER/REFUND MUST BE SUBMITTED IN WRITING. This form will be located on the EDI Website. Requests for refunds made after June 10, 2020 will result in a $87.50 withdrawal fee. Rollovers will not incur any fees
We sincerely hope that the situation in the world will improve soon. We wish all you well during this challenging time. Stay healthy, wear your PPE, and take care of others.
