What is the refund policy?
Contact us three business days prior to the class start date to receive a full refund. Cancellations made after this, or prior to the class starting, will receive full credit to be used toward another class (within 1 year). No refunds or credit will be issued for cancellations after the class has started.
What is the difference between a credit and a non-credit course?
In general, credit courses are designed for students who are interested in earning college credits towards a degree or certificate. These courses are usually a full semester long. Students who take credit courses receive a letter grade (A, B, C, D or F) at the end of the semester.
Noncredit courses are short-term classes offered through the continuing education department. They are intended for students who want to gain general knowledge, learn a new skill, upgrade existing skills or develop personal interests. Upon completion, students may request a certificate of completion from the College.
ALL non-credit classes are not applicable toward a degree. A certificate of completion can be issued at the completion of the course. An important difference is that Federal Financial Aid is not available for non-credit classes.
What if a class I've registered for is cancelled?
Register early to avoid disappointment. Non-credit classes are self-supporting and course-related expenses are paid from student registration fees. Courses that do not meet a minimum student enrollment are subject to cancellation. If that should happen, every effort will be made to notify you. Therefore, it is important that we have an accurate phone number and email address for you. We will attempt to transfer you to another section, find an alternate course, or offer a full refund.

Are there special prices for Owens faculty and staff?
Please review Fund Transfer Request forms located on the Owens employee Intranet.
When do I sign up for a class?
Register early. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Workforce and Community Services reserves the right to change locations, times or dates where necessary, or cancel classes.
What if I miss a class?
It is your responsibility to attend the class date(s) you registered for. Make-up date(s) are only scheduled if class was not held. Refunds are not given after a class has started.
Will I be dropped from a course if I do not attend?
The only way you will be dropped from a Continuing Education class is if you ASK to be dropped. You will be responsible for paying for the class unless you drop it prior to the class starting.
How do online courses work?
You register for the course and complete all requirements via the internet. You are able to work on the class when it is convenient for you. Some courses have a time frame to complete and some may have a specific start date. Please go to this link for more information.
Can kids or teens take continuing education courses?
Some classes have certain age ranges listed. If no age is listed, they are open to all ages as long as individuals can handle the time duration of the class and conduct themselves professionally in the classroom.
