All refunds must be requested BEFORE the second class meets. Tuition for one and two night classes are not refundable. No refunds will be granted for day trips unless we are able to replace you. Check with the tour company for refunds on extended trips. If cancellation protection is available and purchased, 24 hour notice of cancellation must be given in order to receive a refund. A $7 processing fee will be deducted from all refunds, except if a class is canceled by us, then a full refund will be given (enrichment & trips/tours only). Payments made by cash or check will be refunded by check. Please allow approximately 15 business days for your refund to be processed. Payments made by credit card will be refunded back to that credit card. There is a $25 fee for all checks returned from the bank for non- sufficient funds. This fee must be paid in cash only.


If Lake Shore School District closes due to bad weather, Adult and Community Education classes will be canceled, even if the weather later improves. Every effort will be made to reschedule missed classes. In the event we are unable to schedule a make up class, refunds will not be granted. Trips will go as scheduled unless you are notified.
