No. You must register for any class you wish to attend.
Generally, you can drop a class and request a refund up to the day before the first class meets through phone or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We charge an administrative fee that varies among classes. Additionally some classes have a policy that requires earlier notice in order to receive a refund. No refunds are available after the first class meeting. We also allow transfers to another class but if this is done within the window of no allowable refund, the original policy applies.
If a class lists a prerequisite, we strongly recommend that you take it. However, if you have taken similar classes at another location, or have previous experience that covers the content of the prerequisite, you may choose not to take the prerequisite. Overall, we just ask that you assess your skill level and select a class that you feel will be most appropriate for you. If you would like an instructor to help you determine your skill level, please call (678) 839-6614 or email email@example.com.
Our classes are intended for students 18 years of age and older, unless stated otherwise in the class title or class description. It would be at the instructor’s discretion to allow a student who is younger than 18 to enroll in their class. To inquire about approval, call (678) 839-6614 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Register your child according to the age and/or grade level outlined for the class. If your child is not enrolled in the appropriate age and/or grade level, we reserve the right to reassign your child to a more suitable class (if space is available) or deregister your child.
If you see the textbook symbol at the end of the class description, you will need a textbook. If a class has an optional textbook, it will be stated within the class description. If a class fee includes the cost of the textbook, it will also be stated within the class description and are typically handed out on the first day of class.
The College reserves the right to cancel any class if the enrollment is low or for other valid reasons. The College may change the day, time of day or location of a class. In the event of a class cancellation or change prior to the start of the semester, students will be contacted and may select another class or request a full refund. Refunds will be returned in the method of which they were originally made. Cash payments will be returned by check.

If the make-up class is imminent, the CE Office staff will notify the students by phone and/or email.
