Pricing & Policies

MCLS workshop pricing

Prices for MCLS workshops are listed in the description of each workshop. The cost listed is per person for Single Registrations and per group for those workshops that have a Group Registration option.

Group rate pricing

If you are interested in having multiple staff members attend an online workshop at a single location such as a conference room, we offer a group rate. This rate will give you a single login for one computer station, and then you can project your screen to enable as many staff as you'd like to view and participate! Group pricing depends on the length of the workshop but saves money over purchasing Single Registrations if you plan to have three or more staff participating together. While only claiming one available spot in a workshop, each group participant can still download and print the workbook, follow along with exercises, and utilize the chat from one shared computer as needed. See the MCLS Store for each workshop which lists the associated Group Price if available. You can register your group online through the regular registration process by choosing Group Registration and listing only the Group Contact’s name and email address. The Group Contact is responsible to communicate with group members and share the class materials link with them. For any questions, please email

Please note: Group pricing is available for several (but not all) online workshops. You can only purchase a group rate for employees of your institution. We assume you will be viewing together in one group. If participants are intending to all log in from separate locations, they will need to register as individuals. To describe your situation and request an exception, please email

MCLS can also provide dedicated training to your staff on many topics. For more information, please email

MCLS workshop policies

Registration cancellation policy (no-show policy)

If you have registered for an MCLS workshop, and you are not able to attend, you must cancel in writing (via email: at least 72 hours prior to the workshop or you will be charged the full workshop price. The only exception will be for registrants who are unable to attend because of inclement weather. See also the Inclement weather policy below. You may, though, transfer your registration to another staff member at your institution without penalty.

Workshop cancellation policy (workshops canceled by MCLS)

MCLS will cancel workshops if there are not enough people registered or because of inclement weather. If MCLS cancels a workshop, registrants who have paid will be given full refunds.

Inclement weather policy

If you have registered for an on-site MCLS workshop and traveling may be hazardous the day of the workshop, please call the MCLS offices at 517-220-9950 after 6:00 am the day of the workshop. A recorded message will announce if the workshop for that day has been canceled. Only cancellations will be on the recordings. Assume the workshop will take place if there is no recording indicating cancellation.

Use your own judgment when deciding whether to attend. Those who cannot attend a workshop because of inclement weather will not be charged the workshop no-show fee. Please call MCLS if you cannot attend.

Participants with disabilities

If you have a disability that may impact your participation in a particular workshop, please let us know by emailing and include a statement describing your disability-related needs. Someone from our staff will contact you before the workshop to discuss accommodations. We cannot ensure the availability of appropriate accommodations without prior notification of need.
