D-E Community Education

Community Education is a self-supporting program.

1. Refunds are given when a class is cancelled due to low enrollment OR the course requested is already full OR participant request a refund PRIOR to "Register and Pay by" date.

2. Participants requesting to withdraw from a class prior to "Register and Pay By" (or if another date is listed in class description) will be given a refund.

3. Once the "Register and Pay by" date is past, the instructors are giving numbers for planning, supplies, shirt ordered (if applicable), etc. The instructors base running the class by attendance and are planning their compensation based the registered numbers.

4. If payment has not been made by "register and pay by" date, participant/parent is still responsible for payment, even if they opt to cancel (if they cancel after the "register and pay by" date..

5. No refunds will be made for classes missed.
