Registration Information

Registering for a School of Continuing Education program is quick and easy. Please see the topics below for specific information.

Course-by-Course Registration

As you browse through our program offerings, you will notice the “Register Now” button at the end of each course description. Clicking the “Register Now” button takes you to the registration form for the course. If you do not see the “Register Now” button, it either means there is no current session for that course or that the current session is full. Look for directions on who to contact for information on future sessions, or for how to be added to a waiting list.

Registering Multiple People

A separate registration form must be completed for each registrant and each program. After entering the first registrant, click “Add Additional Registrant” button found on the order summary page to add an additional person. This process can be repeated to add all your registrants to the same program.

Program Cancellations/Refunds*

A full refund is issued to program participants if the School of Continuing Education cancels a program for any reason. Participant withdrawals made at least two weeks (14 days) prior to the start of a program can receive a 100% refund. When a participant withdraws less than two weeks prior to the program start, participants may have their fees transferred one time to any currently available program, otherwise participants will receive a refund minus a 20% administrative fee. For programs with a fee of $35 or less, no refund will be given, if a participant withdraws within two weeks of the start date. Once a program has begun, refunds are no longer issued.

*This policy does not apply to Travel programs or to College for Kids/Teens, which have a no refund policy.
