CE Policies

Cancellations and Refunds

Classes may need to be canceled if enrollment is low (the decision will be made 2 business days before the class is scheduled to start), due to an emergency, or if the college is officially closed due to bad weather. If a class is canceled by Continuing Education, you will receive notification by email and phone call prior to the start date. You will receive a 100% refund in the same manner in which you paid. Refunds generally take 7 to 10 business days to complete.

In the event that we must cancel sessions due to weather or other emergency-related events beyond our control, we’ll make every effort to accommodate students. However, we cannot guarantee makeup hours for classes canceled as a result, nor can we provide refunds.

To cancel a registration/withdraw from a class, contact the Continuing Education office by phone or in person at least two (2) business days prior to the start of class. You will be refunded 100% of the class fee minus a $6 processing fee. The processing fee will be waived if you transfer to another Continuing Education class. As per WAC 132F-605-030, no refunds are given for a Continuing Education class if registration is canceled less than two (2) business days before the class starts or after the class begins. Some exceptions may be made on an individual basis; please contact the office by email at Southced@seattlecolleges.edu or by phone at 206-934-5339.

Registration Policy

Continuing Education courses start throughout the quarter and registration is open on a continuous basis. Our classes are open to all adults 18 years of age and older, with some exceptions, reviewed on a case-by-case basis and with instructor approval. There is no application procedure and you do not need to be a matriculated student at South Seattle College to register for Continuing Education classes.

We recommend that students register early (at least one week prior to the start of class) to reserve a spot before classes fill or to avoid class cancellation. Unfortunately, we must cancel classes with low enrollments and your registration can make the difference. We will make every attempt to notify students of any class cancellations or changes, and please check the website for the most up-to-date class information.

Payment is required at the time of registration. When your registration has been processed, you will receive a registration confirmation email. Unless you hear otherwise, the class will begin as indicated. 

It is important to have your current phone number and email address on file with us so we can communicate any class changes or cancellations with you. You can choose to opt-out of all promotional emails and only receive emails directly pertaining to your class.

For help with registration, please call 206-934-5339 or email Southced@seattlecolleges.edu
