Supply Fee

Fees may be charged in some classes, for supplies, and/or materials. The amount of the supply fee will be indicated for each class. There are no refunds unless the class is cancelled.


Courses with insufficient enrollment or those where student attendance drops below minimal standards, may be cancelled. Some classes may be combined with other class sections in order to obtain minimal student attendance. Regular attendance is expected of all students and is especially important for those seeking high school credit, vocational training certificate, or Veterans Administration Benefits.
