Online Registration Options
Berkeley Law event planners have two options for hosting online event registration. These suppliers are under contract to the University of California and important safeguards are in place to protect the revenue they accept on your behalf. You may not use any other website to manage your online registrations if the income will be received by the University.
Wufoo is very good option for simple registration pages where fees are not charged. The Events Services team will design Wufoo pages on your behalf, typically within 4 business days of submitting a request. Each registration page is custom designed to match your event. (See examples here and here.) Registration lists can be downloaded by the event planner directly.
RegOnline is advisable for paid events or events requiring more complicated options. RegOnline charges a small ($2.80) per-person fee, with no additional merchant fee per transaction. The Events Services team will design RegOnline pages on your behalf, typically within 5-7 business days of submitting a request.
A sample RegOnline page can be seen here.
Payments received via your online registration site are processed for deposit to your designated chartstring by Business Services. Please remember that your event budget should include the campus administrative fee of 7% applied to external revenue from the sale of educational activities. This fee is also applied to deposits of checks or cash for event revenue.

Cash Handling Procedures
In general Berkeley Law would like to dissuade you from using a cash fund. The increased liabilities, in most circumstances, outweigh the benefits. There should always be a minimum of two individuals observing cash or check transactions – the cash box is always in the possession of one of these event cashiers or the event coordinator at all times. Please review the Policy for Cash and Cash Equivalents Received flier for details and requirements. A cash box and accompanying transaction documentation may be procured from David Grady with 3 business days notice.
Online Registration at the Event
Credit card account information MAY NOT be accepted directly from cardholders. There are no exceptions to this restriction. Berkeley Law has no longer has the ability to process card information manually. To appropriately manage customer expectations, event coordinators should include a notation on all event-related materials if credit cards will not be accepted on the day of the event. Follow these procedures to accept credit cards at the event registration
