Cash, check, VISA, and MasterCard are accepted for course payment. All prices are subject to change without notice.
You may assume that your class will be held unless you are notified that it has been cancelled.
The Adult Education Department of PLCC reserves the right to cancel, postpone, discontinue or combine classes before or at the first class meeting due to low enrollment. We must cancel classes that do not meet a required minimum enrollment. A minimum of 6 students is needed to ensure operation of most classes; some classes require higher minimum enrollments. If a class is canceled for any of the above reasons, the student will receive a full tuition refund. Attempts are made to contact students whose class has been canceled. To avoid class cancellations, all registrations must be received the Friday before the start of each class.
If a student withdraws from any program before classes have begun, we will refund the tuition paid, less the deposit which is non-refundable. If a student withdraws from any program once classes have begun, the percentage of hours attended by the student will be calculated based upon the total hours in the payment period. The withdrawing student will be billed for the percentage of hours completed (see below). The deposit is non-refundable. Refer to the information below for refund %. Official withdrawal is defined as the student’s last day of attendance.
0-10% – 80%
11-20% – 70%
21-30% – 60%
31-40% – 50%
41-50% – 40%
51-100% – 0%
