Course Cancelations and Refunds
Our non-credit Lifelong Learning courses run based on enrollment. Upon occasion, we may have to either postpone a course start date or cancel the course. In these instances, students may opt for a full refund (including the $30 Registration Fee) or may have their account credited to enroll in a future class.
Lifelong Learning Non-Credit Course Refund Policy
Students who wish to request a refund must do so at least 1 business day before the start date. No refunds will be given for Lifelong Learning courses after this time, and partial refunds will not be given for absences or scheduling conflicts. Students will be eligible to receive their full amount paid, minus the non-refundable $30 registration fee. No refunds will be given for kids' programs where the registration fee is waived. Students enrolled in our ESOL and HiSET classes may request a refund (minus the $30 registration fee) up until before the 2nd class starts.
Students should visit our office in Building #4, Room 102 to complete the appropriate refund request form.
Some Lifelong Learning non-credit courses provide Certificates of Completion upon successful course completion. Such applicable courses are graded on a Pass (P) / Fail (F) basis.
