Course Guidelines

All courses will be held at Carthage Technical Center – North, 609 River Street, unless otherwise noted in the description.  Most courses require ten (10) enrollees per course.  You will be notified if the minimum is not met and the class must be cancelled.  On the other hand, many of the classes have limited enrollment.  Register early to avoid class cancellation or class filling.  Payment must be received 1 week before class date to reserve a seat.  Registration will be accepted in the order received and courses will be closed after the maximum number of students for each has been enrolled.  If registrations have been received after a course has been closed or if an insufficient number register for a course, fees will be returned.

The student must make the request to drop a course prior to the beginning of the second class meeting to obtain a full refund.  After the second class begins, a refund will not be issued.
