Send a separate check and registration form for each class. Make checks payable to Paris Junior College Continuing Education. Receipt is maintained in the Continuing Education office. Please keep your cancelled check as a record of your payment. Those who pay cash will receive a receipt.
Because we try to keep costs low, acknowledgment of registration is not made on mail, FAX or phone registrations. No receipts or reminders are given for most registrations, so enrolled students should mark their calendars for the class starting date.
Many classes have limited enrollment, and courses with insufficient registration may be cancelled. Registration is accepted up to one day prior to the starting date of the class, but you must register before a class begins. If the class is full at the time your registration is received, Continuing Education staff will contact you and either return your fee or enroll you in another course of your choice.
A full refund is given upon request through the Continuing Education office prior to the first class meeting. An 80 precent refund is given upon request prior to the second class meeting. No refund is granted following the second class meeting. Refunds may take up to 30 days to receive.
To drop one course and add another, please contact Continuing Education.
In the event of severe weather conditions, students should listen to local radio and television stations for the official closure of the campus, or call the Continuing Education office at 903-782-0445 or 903-782-0447. If the college is closed, all off-campus locations will be considered closed as well.
One Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is defined as “ten hours of participation in an organized continuing education, adult, or extension experience under sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction.” CEUs are recognized nationally as a measure of substantive in-service education and training; however, the CEU should not be interpreted as a substitute for college credit.
Continuing Education students are eligible for students services such as counseling, job placement, special needs, library privileges and services provided by the Learning Skills Center. Call 903-782-0447 for information.
Generally, there are no examinations in Continuing Education courses. Course descriptions will include prerequisites or placement requirements when appropriate. Continuing Education classes are offered on a non-credit basis.
