CLASS POLICIES:

1. Anyone signing up for a class must pay for the class to be considered registered.

2. People signing up for a class should not pay the materials fee at the time of registration (unless it is included in the fee). Materials fees are generally paid to the teacher or studio on the first day of class.

3. Each class has a minimum and a maximum number of students. If the minimum number of students is not reached by the registration deadline, the class may be canceled and all fees refunded. If a student must cancel after paying, a refund will be given if it is two weeks (14 calendar days) or more before the class; otherwise, we cannot give a refund. This is necessary due to the amount of work involved with class registration, set up, and publicity and fairness to others in the class.

4. If classes are held over the lunch hour, students should bring a lunch with them.

5. If Anderson County schools are closed due to bad weather, classes will likely not be held. Call the office to verify If it is a weekend, the decision to cancel is up to the teacher. In that case, please call the Center at 494-9854.
