Confirmation and Cancellation: No news is good news. If you have paid your tuition, assume you are enrolled and plan to attend the class. When you register, we assume that you have put the course date, time, and location on your calendar and have reconciled potential conflicts before you register. We will call you if a course is canceled, full, or relocated. If a make-up class is needed due to weather postponement, we try to hold the make-up the week after the last class scheduled; check the web site for exact dates. Please include an accurate and legible phone number and/or email address so that we can contact you if a course is canceled, full, or relocated.


Refunds: You will obtain a full tuition refund when Ridgefield Continuing Education cancels a class or the class is full. If you are requesting a tuition refund, we must receive your request in writing (letter or email) five days before a class starts and we will withhold a $15 withdrawal fee per class from the amount refunded. Students assume all risk of changes in their personal schedules. Absence from the class does not reduce the cost of operating our programs. Class sessions may be rescheduled due to an unexpected circumstances; refunds will not be issued to students unable to attend a rescheduled make-up class (including make-up classes online). Medical refunds only will be pro-rated for the remainder of the session (less the $15 withdrawal fee) when verified by a physician's note. The tuition refund is calculated on the date a written cancellation notice is provided, not on the date of the last class attended or missed. Refunds are not available to people who register less than 5 days before a class starts. Refunds take 4 to 6 weeks to process.
