Do you accept credit cards?

  • Yes, we accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover. When registering online, your credit card will be processed immediately through our secure website.

When should I register for a course?

  • Registrations are accepted online until the course begins, but please register early! If a class has too few students, it will be cancelled the day before. Also, no waiting lists are kept, but some courses fill up quickly, so don't wait to register.

Will I receive confirmation of my course registration?

  • We do not confirm course enrollments unless a self-addressed stamped envelope is included with your mailed-in registration. We will contact you only if the course is full, cancelled or if the start date, time or location changes.

How do I know if anything about my class has changed?

  • Often, we must make changes to courses (dates, times, instructors, etc.) The most up-to-date information about courses can be found in our online course catalog.

How do I know if my class is cancelled?

  • Emergency closings are announced by 6 pm on WELI 960 AM. Also check local television stations for cancellations. If day school in North Branford, Branford, Guilford, Madison or Clinton is cancelled, we're closed for classes in that town only. Weather-related closings or teacher absences will be made up at the end of the course.

Can I get a refund?

  • Refunds are issued if a written request, a fax or phone call is received one week prior to course start. If you withdraw before the second session, you will receive a credit voucher to use for future courses. For more information, see our Refund Policy.
