REFUND INFORMATION

All tickets purchased for upcoming Carpenter Center 2019/2020 season events will be automatically refunded. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

 

  • You do not need to take any steps to initiate a refund
  • Carpenter Center season performance purchases made with a credit card in the last 90 days will be automatically refunded by point of purchase for the cost of the ticket.
  • Carpenter Center season performance purchases made more than 90 days ago, or in person at the Carpenter Center Arts Ticket Office by cash or check, will automatically be issued a check to the on-file billing address for the cost of the ticket. While we are making every effort to issue refunds as quickly as possible, this is a time-consuming process even under the best of circumstances. We appreciate your patience.

 

Our Arts Ticket Office on campus is currently closed while our box office team works remotely. If you have additional questions, please contact the Arts Ticket Office by email at cota-cpac@csulb.edu.
