Frequently Asked Questions
What is CE's response to COVID-19?
Please review Peninsula College's COVID precautions.
How do I register for a CE class?
You can visit our course catalog.
How late can I register for a CE class?
Registration closes 1-3 days before the class begins, so we have time to process your payment and email you a confirmation and information about your class. If the class does not have enough students enrolled three business days before the class begins, we might need to reschedule or cancel the class. So please register in advance!
What is the minimum number of students required for a CE class to run?
Minimum enrollment varies from class to class. Community Education makes every effort to plan classes in such a way that they can run even with a small number of students. It is important, however, that you do not wait until the last minute to register. Classes with low enrollment may be rescheduled or canceled and your registration could be the one that allows the class to run.
Is the school closed due to bad weather or emergencies?
School Closures will be posted on Peninsula College’s website and Community Ed will try to reschedule the class.
I’m having trouble registering on your website. Who can I contact for CE assistance?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Peninsula College issues refunds in the original payment type. Refunds of course fees will be given as follows:
- If a course is cancelled by Community Education, the student will receive a complete refund.
- If a student withdraws three (3) business days prior to the first class session, the student will receive a complete refund, less registration fees. Please note, we cannot refund registration fees for students who withdraw.
- If a student withdraws less than three (3) business days prior to the first class session, the student will not be refunded.
- If the student does not attend class, the student will not be refunded.
- If the student stops attending class, the student will not be refunded.
Do you offer any type of payment plan or scholarships for CE classes?
Unfortunately, financial assistance is usually from federal funds and is reserved for credit-based and degree-based programs and therefore is NOT applicable for Community Education classes and programs. We are not able to offer any type of payment plan, though we do take most credit cards. If you are eligible for unemployment benefits, please contact your local office to determine your eligibility. Peninsula College Foundation has grant funds available for Forks residents enrolled in the CDL program through Peninsula College.
I have to miss a few CE class sessions. Can I pay for just the sessions that I will attend?
We are unable to prorate classes, so the full class fee is required for registration regardless of attendance.
Can I get college credit for CE classes?
No, our classes are not for credit. Some classes offer a badge or certificate upon completion.
Can I audit a CE class or get a senior discount?
Community Education classes are not eligible for audit or discounts.
Can I bring my child to a CE class with me?
Children of any age, including infants, are not allowed in Community Education classes unless the class is specifically designed for children. We also ask that you not let your child roam the college campus unattended as it can be very disruptive to the learning process and is unsafe for your child.
