How do I register?
We strive to keep registration simple by offering three easy ways to register for our programs: by mail, online, or in person. You may register using the form across this page to mail with a check or money order, or simply register & pay online for MasterCard, Visa or American Express. We would love to meet and register you in person, but keep in mind that cash payments need to be the exact amount of your total. Our instructors cannot accept money for registration fees. Course rates are subject to change without notice. Any additional cost to the course will be included in the course description. If the course involves physical activity such as the swim classes, a signed waiver of liability is required prior to the activity.
Why should I register early?
We reserve the right to cancel courses due to low enrollment. Such decisions are made three business days prior to the class begin date. If a course is rescheduled for any reason, those registered will be contacted to verify availability for the rescheduled date. If a course is canceled due to low enrollment, registration fees are refunded in full.
Where do I park?
At the time of registration, you will be given a parking permit to hang on your rear-view mirror and instructed as to which parking lot is to be used for that particular course.
Do you accept the Hope Scholarship or Pell Grant funds?
No. Scholarships and Pell Grants are not applicable to non-credit courses. However, for those enrolled in our online certificate programs offered in conjunction with Ed2Go Online Career Training do have financial assistance that is available. For other courses and activities, our office is able to setup payment plans on a case-by-case basis so call us for details.
What ages can take the courses offered?
All classes are for ages 16 and up, and will take place on the Gordon State College Campus, unless otherwise indicated. Our Junior Highlanders segment is designed for anyone under the age of 18 and must include parental/guardian information. Registration is required for all courses and activities.
What is your refund policy?
No refunds given once a course begins. However, if a course is cancelled by the department, the student will receive a full refund or may apply payment to another course within one year. Failure to attend a course does not constitute withdrawal or refund.
Does course registrations require admission to the college?
Community Education classes do not require admission to the college nor do they require transcripts.
