A $10 registration fee will be deducted if you withdraw your registration. Please contact the office at least a week before the course begins if you must cancel your registration; after that time your tuition is committed to your course.

Most classes are open to both district residents and non-residents. A non-resident fee of $3 applies to all classes which are more than one night long.
If you provide an email address you will receive a course confirmation at the time of enrollment, which includes your course location and room number. A course with low enrollment may be canceled or postponed. We will notify you and process a refund for all course fees paid if a course is canceled.
Refunds will be given if a student withdraws at least one week prior to the start of the course, less a processing fee of $10. No other refunds will be granted. Full refunds will be granted for any course that is cancelled due to low enrollment or the fee may be transferred to another class. Note: 3rd party providers noted in catalog have their own refund policies that apply to students.
Please request a Course Completion Certificate when you enroll if you require one.
