    Must I complete the Parent Consent Form?
    Yes, it is very important that the Parental Consent portion is completed for each student enrolled in College for Kids. If you are registering online, there will be an area for you to provide consent. The staff needs an adult contact person in case of injury, illness, or disciplinary problems. Please be sure to give a phone number where you or a responsible party can be reached during the sessions. No answering machines please.

    What do I do if my child misses class or must leave early?
    If your child will miss or need to be excused early from class you must notify the College for Kids office prior to class. Instructors will not allow students to leave class early for any reason without notifying the College for Kids office.

    What is the cancellation policy?

    The class fee will be refunded only if a student withdraws by noon on June 24, 2014.  If the class is cancelled due to low enrollment, students can be transferred into another class or will be reimbursed the full tuition amount.

    How can I know what sessions are full?
    Sessions do fill quickly. Please check our web site for an updated list of closed classes.
     
    When will I receive confirmation information for my son/daughter's class(es)?
    Once we receive your registration and full payment you will receive a confirmation email. Also, before classes start you will receive a letter that will provide the classes they are registered for, complete instructions on drop off and pick up locations and any special items your child should bring.
