    Can I purchase gift certificates?

    There are two ways to share the gift of leisure!

Recipients will be emailed a redmeption code (valid for one year) which may be used as payment at time of registration. Note: Purchase of an eGift card does not register a student in a specific class or hold a seat in a specific class.

    How will I know if I get into a class?

    If you register yourself online, you will be able to see whether there is still space available in a class. Once you complete the necessary payment information, you are registered. You will receive an email confirmation of your registration within 24 hours.

    Our office will send a class confirmation email to students 3-5 days before the start of class. If the minimum enrollment has not been met, the class will be cancelled and students will be notified. For this reason, we recommend that you wait until you receive the class confirmation to purchase supplies or to pick up your parking permit.

    What happens if a course is full?

    If the course you select is full, you may opt to be added to a waiting list.  In the event of cancellations, increased class maximums or the opening of an additional section, we will first offer the space(s) to students on the waiting list in the order in which they were added.  Please note that instructors are not authorized to make exceptions and available spaces will only be filled with students on the waiting list.

    Can a class be cancelled because of low enrollment?

    A decision to hold a class, based on the minimum enrollment for that class, will be made 3-5 days before the start of the class. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, we will notify you by email and issue you a full refund of the class fee.
