We often have waitlists for programs by early May. Students are placed on the waitlist in order of the date their applications were received, or the date they asked to be put on the waitlist, whichever is later. If a spot becomes available, we will call and/or email the first person on the waitlist. Please reply promptly if notified of availability. You may remove yourself from a waitlist at any time by calling 253.237.3545 or emailing [email protected].

Openings can occur at any time up to a couple of days before the start of the program. Being placed in a program from the waitlist will depend on the cancellations we receive. When you are moved from the waitlist into the program, you will receive a “Placed From Waitlist” email confirmation. Washington Business Week cannot guarantee spots will become available for all students placed on the waitlist. Unless we have accepted you into your 2nd choice program, any program tuition submitted by credit card or check will be held (not charged or cashed) until an opening occurs and you accept a spot in the program.

Program Changes, Cancellations and Refund Policy

To change your program details,  please contact WBW at 253.237.3545 or [email protected].

If your forms or tuition payments are delinquent by more than 2 weeks, we reserve the right to cancel your program registration.

Students will receive a full refund except for the $4.95 registration fee if they cancel two weeks before the program start date.

If you arrive late, do not attend or leave our program early due to accident, illness, homesickness, behavior problems, other activities to attend, or at student or parent request, there will be no refunds or prorated fees.

Day Programs Pick Up

For the safety of all Washington Business Week students & staff, parents/guardians are not allowed to pick up their student(s) before 6:00 pm during the program. All students must check-out with WBW staff after program completion each day. Parents/guardians will need to show photo ID when coming to pick up their student.

Early Pick-Up

It is crucial that all students attend the entirety of the program, as the success of each team relies on all team members being present. Removing a student(s) from a program early will cause a change in team dynamics, which may prevent the team from performing successfully. Any student leaving the program at any point has the potential to forfeit the college credits earned during the week.  Loss of credit will be reviewed on a case to case basis by Washington Business Week staff.

In case of a family emergency resulting in early pick-up of the student(s), the parent and/or guardian will need to notify staff.  Staff contacts for camp will be provided with information about camp.


Washington Business Week runs our programs on college campuses, and we take the safety of our students & staff very seriously. In order to keep everyone safe, we need to know who is interacting with our students at all times. At no point during the programs, either over-night or day programs, will a parent and/or guardian be allowed to visit their student(s), unless in case of emergency.

I learned how to work collaboratively with a team and important business skills, such as handling finances, marketing, and presenting to judges.
