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.

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.

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. Please note: Under the Federal Right to Privacy Act (FERPA), the college cannot disclose any student information without written consent of the student.
All requests for refunds must be received in writing in our office prior to the first day of class. A 100 percent 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 given according to the method of payment in approximately two weeks. Special exceptions are noted in the course descriptions. No refund will be given on or after the course start date. This refund/withdrawal policy does not pertain to the driver education course.
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.
