Course Materials 
AIAA short courses supply you with extensive course materials only available online. These charts, lists, graphics, and summaries provide you with invaluable resources for future reference. Since course notes will not be distributed onsite, AIAA and your course instructor highly recommend that you bring your computer with the course notes already downloaded to the course. Once you have registered for the course, these course notes are available about two weeks prior to the course event. Back to Top >


Course Fees 
Course fees include tuition, online course notes and presentations, and in only some cases textbooks, software, and refreshments. Fees do not include hotel accommodations. Back to Top >


Lodging Information 
You will receive hotel information if you register for a course held at an AIAA forum with your registration confirmation letter. Back to Top >

When you register at the nonmember rate, you will receive a one-year AIAA membership. Back to Top >


Advance Registration 
We encourage you to register online in advance of the course, but if circumstances preclude advance registration, please call as late as one week prior to the course. This gives us time to notify you of any changes and ensure that the proper class materials are ready for you. Back to Top >


Payment and Confirmation 
A check, credit card information, or corporate purchase order must accompany your registration form. We will mail a confirmation letter with course details within 10 business days of receiving your registration. If you have not received a confirmation letter by one week prior to the first day of the class, please contact Chris Brown at chrisb@aiaa.org or +1.703.264.7504. Back to Top >

Cancellations and Substitutions 
Substitutions may be made at any time. cancellations must be postmarked four weeks before the course start date and are subject to a $100 cancellation fee. If you must cancel within four weeks of the course date, you will forfeit the entire fee. AIAA reserves the right to cancel any program due to insufficient registration or any situation beyond its control. Each course will be reviewed three weeks prior to the start date and may be canceled if a minimum enrollment has not been reached. Please refer to the AIAA website for course status. If AIAA cancels a course, participants will be notified immediately and a full refund will be issued. AIAA cannot be responsible for expenses incurred due to course cancellation. AIAA reserves the right to substitute speakers in the event of unusual circumstances. Back to Top >
