General Information: 

All class sizes are limited and registration is accepted on a first-come basis. Pre-registration is required for all classes. You must be registered with fees paid before class begins.

Registration Confirmation:  If you have an email address on file, you will receive a receipt that serves as your class confirmation. You will be notified if classes are cancelled or full.

Register Early:  Registering early helps secure your spot in classes that fill quickly and prevents unnecessary cancellation of classes due to low enrollment. Please register at least five days before the beginning of class.

Refund Policy:  In order to be reimbursed for cancelling a class, you must notify us at least three business days before the start of class unless otherwise stated in the class description. No refunds will be given for cancellations received less than three business days before class. Community Education may cancel any class or program that does not meet the minimum enrollment. A full refund will be issued to those who register for a class that is cancelled or full.

Weather Cancellations:  If school cancels during the day due to bad weather, Community Education will also close. Announcements will be broadcast over the following stations and continue periodically:  WJJY (106.7 FM), 3Wi (1270 AM), KLIZ (1380 AM/107.5 FM), KFGI (Froggy 103.5 FM), KVBR (1340 AM), KLKS (104.3 FM), KTIG (102.7 FM) & KCCO-TV, (Channel 7/12).
