Q: How do I register for courses?

  2. If you are registering multiple students in a household, or registering your child, create a "household profile."  If you are registering yourself create a "student profile".  You will receive an email verification that your profile has been set up and at that time may login to register for courses.

Q. Should I enroll for another class if I am on the waiting list?

Q. How will I be notified if a class I've registered for is cancelled? Is there a refund?

Students are notified by email and phone no later than three (3) working days before the start date of the class. A full refund will ONLY be issued for cancelled classes.

Q. How do I request a refund for a Community Education class?

The Community Education Department, faculty, and facilities are funded solely on course registration and student paid fees. Because the programs do not receive any State or Federal funding, all class enrollments are final, therefore there are no refunds. Credit vouchers are available for certain courses within certain programs for a limited period, and are determined on a case by case basis.  We reserve the right to substitute instructors, discontinue, postpone, combine and/or cancel any course.

If a cancellation is awarded, the following stipulations will be in place:
  • Credit card refunds will only be issued to the same credit card used during the initial transaction.
  • Please allow 4-6 weeks for check refunds.
  • Each student-requested class change or class cancellation is charged a $25 service fee per class.
  • There will be no refunds for no-show attendance or for going to a wrong location.
  • No refunds will be issued for missing a class meeting. 
  • Class enrollment is not transferrable.
  • Refunds will not be pro-rated.
Cancellations: Students will be notified of any cancellation and a full refund will be issued if a class is cancelled.

Q. Can I cancel/transfer from a class once a session has begun?

You can make changes to your child's schedule up until the end of day 2 for each session. No class switches/cancellations allowed after Day 2.

Q. Can I register for classes online?

Yes. In fact, online registrations are considered the most efficient method of enrollment. Students who enroll online receive instant enrollment confirmation and can print class schedules immediately. Our site is safe, secure, and efficient.

Q. Do I need to bring a class confirmation to the first class meeting?
