REGISTRATION FORM



REGISTER EARLY FOR PROGRAMS - MINIMUM ENROLLMENT REQUIRED

In an effort to keep program fees as low as possible, minimum enrollment numbers have been established. It is critical for everyone to sign up early! There are times that programs or classes will be canceled if there are not enough registrants. This decision must be made by the deadline of the program, so that those who have signed up can be notified. Please adhere to program deadlines and register early. All participants must be pre-registered for programs, unless otherwise noted.


MAIL-IN REGISTRATION

SCHOLARSHIPS

Limited scholarships are available and must be applied for in advance. Applicants will need to provide evidence of financial need. Please contact the office for more information.


REFUNDS

Because the decision to conduct a program is based on the enrollment number at the first class, refunds are not guaranteed after the first meeting of the class. Refunds will be issued if participants cancel before the activity begins, minus a $5.00 processing fee. Please note, it takes two weeks to process a refund. If a program is full or canceled, you will be contacted.
