courses. Call (410) 334-2815 for more information.
If you are a Maryland resident who is 60 years of age or older at the time of registration
and who enrolls in any continuing education course that has at least 10 regularly-enrolled
students or is being continued with less than 10 students, you do not have to pay
tuition for regular open enrollment courses. Pay $6 (write "SR-$6" in the tuition
box) for the registration fee per course plus other fees where indicated in the
course information. Out-of-county fees are not applicable for Maryland seniors.
Out-of-state (non-Maryland) senior residents

courses, pay the $15 out-of-state fee, which should be added to the course tuition
plus any other fees, where indicated.
2. For "seniors only" courses, call (410)
334-2815 for the tuition cost; pay the tuition plus any other course fees.
Tuition, not including fees, for workforce development courses is waived for Maryland

Act. Students must complete a waiver application, which is valid for one year. Tuition
waiver forms are available in the counseling office.
Employer Billed Tuition and Fees
Advance payments by company check are welcomed from employers who pay for their
employees' tuition and fees at the time of registration. The college can also directly
bill a company. Mail or fax to (410) 334-2952 the completed registration form with
a purchase order or letter of authorization on company letterhead. Include the employee's
name, course number and title, total amount for tuition and fees, billing address
and signature of the person authorizing payment. The college does not bill in order
to reimburse students who have paid their own tuition. Upon receipt of the authorization
and registration form(s), the regular refund/withdrawal policy applies and the invoice
will reflect the prorated balance due when appropriate.
All requests for refunds must be received in writing in our office prior to the
first day of class. A 100% refund will be issued up to the day before the course
start date. If a course is filled or canceled, a full refund will be sent by mail
in approximately three weeks. Special exceptions are noted in the course descriptions.
No refund will be given on or after the course start date.
You are automatically registered when the college receives your registration form
and payment unless the course is already filled. You will not receive written confirmation
so please attend your course at its scheduled time.

environment that is safe and secure, free from substance abuse, sex offenses and
other crimes. Policies and procedures are developed to meet this goal and to comply
with federal, state and local laws that govern the conduct of students and employees
at college facilities or at college-sponsored events. An annual security report
is available to all current and prospective students and employees on the college’s
website at www.worwic.edu/AnnSecRpt.pdf or a copy can be obtained by contacting

with the Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Students requesting these services must submit medical and/or educational documentation
to the Director of Counseling at least four weeks before the start of session so
that eligibility can be determined and the appropriate accommodations can be made.

closing announcements and security alerts to individuals who sign up for this free
service. Go to www.worwic.edu/e2campus to sign up. If your Wor-Wic continuing education
