General Information

Class Confirmations
When you register online, you will receive an email confirmation. For all other registration methods, Community Education does not send class confirmations. Assume you are in the class and that it will be held at the time and place indicated. We will contact you by mail or phone if there is a change. Please list a daytime phone number so we can reach you if a class is cancelled. Community Education assumes no responsibility for reaching those who do not provide a daytime telephone number.

Register Early
Many classes fill quickly. Classes will be cancelled one week prior to the start date if sufficient enrollment is not received. Help us avoid the disappointment of class cancellations by registering early.

Youth Scholarships
Financial assistance for district resident youth may be available for youth enrichment classes. Call 651-351-8300 for details.

Senior Discounts
Lifelong learners over the age of 62 will receive a 15% discount on all Community Education classes with the exception of golf lessons.

Refund Policy
If you need to cancel, notify us at 651-351-8300 at least 3 full working days before the class begins. We will refund the class fee minus a $5.00 processing fee. Full refunds will be issued for classes that are full or cancelled. Refunds will not be given after the class has started. Some classes may have special refund circumstances which are listed in the class description.
