REFUNDS & CREDITS
Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal from a course. A request for a refund must be made in writing one week before the first class. Trip refunds must be requested 30 days prior to the trip date. For withdrawals less than 30 days prior to a trip, full or partial refunds are contingent upon the ability to sell the seat.
There are no refunds on registration fees, books or supplies.
There is no provision for a partial fee for taking one session or part of a course. Making up absences in another section of a course depends entirely on space availability in that section.
Adult Education reserves the right to cancel any course for which there is insufficient enrollment and to withdraw or modify course offerings. In the event that Adult Education has to cancel a class session, we will make every effort to reschedule it. If the class cannot be rescheduled, we will provide a refund or credit. There are no credits or refunds for classes that are rescheduled as a result of "acts of God".
PROOF OF RESIDENCY
In classes with limited enrollment, preference is given to Roslyn, Herricks and East Williston School District residents until one week prior to the first class, or 30 days prior to a trip. Proof of residency may be requested.
