How will I know if I get into a class?

If you provide an email address when you register by mail or fax, you will receive an email confirmation within 24 hours after we process your registration. If you do not have email but would like a confirmation, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your registration.

What happens if a course is full?
If the course you select is full, you can request to be placed on a waiting list. If you paid by credit card, your account will not be charged. If you paid with separate checks for each course, your check will not be deposited. If you paid with one check for more than one class, you will have credit in your account.
If space opens up in the class, we will advise you.

Can a class be cancelled because of low enrollment?
In most cases, we require at least five students for a class to run. If we have to cancel a class due to low enrollment, we will notify you at least two days before the class is scheduled to begin. If you need more notice, we suggest you call or email the office to check enrollment.
If we have to cancel your class, you can request a full refund of your tuition or transfer to another course of your choice, space permitting.

What if I cannot attend a course as planned?
If you need to withdraw from a class and notify us at least two business days before the class starts, you will receive a credit or refund of the course fee. If you notify us fewer than two days before the class starts, and we are able to fill your spot from a waiting list, you will receive a credit or full refund of the course fee.
No refunds will be made once a class has started, but you may request to be transferred to another class if space is available.

What happens in case of inclement weather?

 The Community Education Courses will follow the PPCC Campus Closures, specifically for the campus or location your class will be held at.   

 

If your course is held at the Downtown Studio Campus and the campus is open or closed, your course will reflect appropriately. Likewise, if your course is held at the Centennial Campus and the campus is open or closed, your course will reflect appropriately.


Course refunds will be given for weather related courses if the class meets for one session only and that one session is closed due to a campus closure.  Otherwise, no refunds are given for campus closure. 

 

If the campus or location is closed, you will receive an email regarding the closure.  Please know that Pikes Peak Community College will generally stay open unless there is a road closure or an emergency situation.  We encourage you to watch the news and check the ppcc.edu website for most up to date information regarding specific campus closure.  


Can I make up missed classes?
Students may not make up absences by attending classes other than their own.
If a class session is postponed by an instructor or due to extreme weather, a make-up will be scheduled.

What if I am not satisfied with a class?
We are proud of the quality of our programs. If you are not satisfied with a class, please contact us immediately and we will do everything within our power to address your concerns.
