General Policies

Registration Fee Policy

A non-refundable registration fee of $10 per person is due each semester (i.e. spring, fall). If you have already paid the registration fee and wish to add additional classes, please call our office to avoid incurring a duplicate $10 charge. The Adult School will not reimburse duplicate registration fees.


If registering for only one class that costs $10 or less, the registration fee will be waived if registration is done over the phone. Students who choose to register for these classes online will be charged the registration fee; no reimbursement will be provided. If any additional classes are purchased during the same semester, regardless of the price of the classes, the registration fee will be charged.

Refund Policy

Student Withdrawal: The registration fee is non-refundable, but class costs will be reimbursed if student withdraws at least one week prior to the start of class. Refunds will be issued in the original form of payment, minus a processing fee for each dropped class. The fee will be determined based on the price of the class: $5 for classes costing $100 or less; $10 for classes costing $101-$200; $15 for classes costing $201-$300. Example: Your $139 class begins on a Tuesday. If request is received by midnight on Monday one week prior to the start date, a refund of $129 will be provided. 


Course Canceled by School: A full refund will be issued if The Adult School must cancel a class or trip. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for processing.


Trips: Partial refund will be available if the seat can be re-sold. A cancellation fee will be applied as stated in student withdrawal policy above.

Closing Policy

Closings due to inclement weather or for any other reason will be announced via email and on our website. Please make sure your contact information is accurate when registering for classes. Instructors will make every effort to reschedule classes missed due to closings.

COVID-19 Policy

Unless indicated otherwise in the class description, vaccinations are not required to attend our classes and masks are optional for vaccinated participants, though we encourage their use and respect all students and instructors who choose to continue wearing them. This policy is subject to change, and any changes will be announced on our website. In the event we are required to cancel in-person classes due to COVID-19, we will make every effort to transition classes to a virtual format. If the instructor deems the subject matter to be unfeasible in an online format, or if students are unable to continue in an online format, a partial credit/refund equal to the cost of the sessions that could not meet in person will be provided.

Website Credit Policy

Website credits are valid for two years after the date of issuance. The website credit remains in your name on our registration system, and the credit will automatically be applied to your balance the next time you register. Should the credit not be used within two years of its issuance, it will be removed from the registration system and will no longer be available to you. Under no circumstances can a website credit be converted to another form of refund/payment.
