Policies concerning registration for any of our offerings are listed below. Please carefully review the Refund Policy regarding withdrawing from a class that went into effect with Fall 2010 registrations and the Attendance in Technology Classes effective with the Winter/Spring 2012 semester.
Other recent changes/additions to our policies below are italicized in purple for you to review. As always, do not hesitate to call the office directly at 646-4565 if you have any questions about how a policy may affect you in order to avoid any misunderstandings.
FEES & DISCOUNTS
(Note: Only one discount can be applied per class.)
Registration Fees: Payment due with registration. There will be a $10 fee for any returned checks (new).
Materials Fee: Pay at registration unless otherwise indicated in the course description.
Book Fees: Due at first class. Book deposits are refunded when the book is returned in the same condition as it was received.
Senior Citizen Discount: Some classes are eligible for a 20% discount on the course fee for anyone 65 or older. Other fees such as materials or book must be paid in full. Click here to see the list of Fall 2011 courses eligible for the Senior Citizen Discount.
Email Discounts: Additional discounts are offered from time to time to those on our email list. Sign up by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fee Waivers: You may be eligible for a confidential fee waiver based on your income. Request a form from the office by calling 646-4565.
Location: The location of all classes is noted at the end of the course information. Click here for Directions.
Registration for Free Classes: Unless the course description specifically says otherwise, you must register for a class that has no fee. This is in part for your convenience in the event the class is cancelled for any reason - we can't contact you if we don't know you're coming - don't waste a trip!
Age Policy: Minimum age for class participation is 17, unless otherwise noted in the course description or special permission is granted in writing by the director.
Confirmation: Assume your class is running unless you hear from us. If you mail in your registration, you may call the office for verbal confirmation (see Cancellations-Low Enrollment below for more information).
Cancellations-Low Enrollment: Unless the course description includes a specific registration deadline, we check the enrollments in a class two business days before its start date. If the class does not have the pre-determined minimum number of registrations, we will cancel the class and notify you immediately using the contact information in our records. Please be sure we always have your most current phone number and/or email address (email only used if we are unable to make contact by telephone). If you do not have an answering machine or voice mail you can call us to make sure it hasn't been cancelled. You are always welcome to call the office to check on the status of a class you are enrolled in. It will also give you the opportunity to be a "hero" and drum up some business to help save the class if need be!
Cancellations-No School Policy: Cancellations due to severe weather conditions will be announced after 3:00 pm on area TV stations, this website and our office answering machine. If the school district has no school for the day, adult education classes are also cancelled that day and night. Classes will be made up if possible or refunded on a pro-rated basis (for one session of a multi-session course).
Attendance in Technology Classes: Due to the nature of the technology classes it is very important that you attend the first session of the class. If you miss the first session for any reason, you might not be able to participate in the class. The instructor will determine if you may join based on the material covered in the first session. If you cannot join the class, we will call you. You will receive a 50% refund.
Refunds: 100% refund for canceled courses or if you withdraw four business days prior to first class. No refunds for withdrawals for one session classes after that time. 50% refund if you withdraw prior to second class. No refunds for trips after the registration deadline.
Refunds are issued in the same payment method as the registration (all cash payments and PayPal payments greater than 60 days old are refunded by check). Please allow four to six weeks to process check refunds which will be issued through the Wells-Ogunquit Community School District (new). PayPal payments less than 60 days old and all MC and Visa payments are refunded within 48 business hours.
Gift Certificates: Gift certificates may be purchased for a specific amount or for a particular class. We will be happy to work with you to meet your needs. Please contact the office directly to purchase gift certificates.
Disability Access: In compliance with the regulations of the Office for Civil Rights and with Equal Opportunity practices as determined by state and federal legislation, the Wells-Ogunquit CSD, as a matter of policy, does not knowingly condone discrimination in employment, assignment, program, or services, on the basis of race, gender, color, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, disability, or related abilities to perform the duties of the position.
