Cancelled Class or Change of Course Schedule

The College reserves the right to make changes to the Course Schedule without prior notice. On occasion, it is necessary to cancel a course or make last-minute changes to the course time, day, or instructor. In the event of a course cancellation or a time and/or day change, the College will notify any students who may be registered in the course. Refunds will be given to students registered in a cancelled class and to students who cannot take the course on the new day or at the new time. A change of course instructor is not grounds for compensation.
