Registration

Please read the following information carefully before completing the Community Education Registration Form.

Community Education classes ARE NOT FOR COLLEGE CREDIT.

Things You Should Know

Transfers/Credits/Refunds. No refunds are given for Community Education classes.   If you cannot attend a course as planned, you may receive an Community Education class credit. You must inform Community Education within 5 days of the class's scheduled date to receive this credit. You must return your class ticket to the registration office to receive the credit. Credits may be applied toward the cost of any future Community Education course. This credit does not expire until used. A credit may be issued outside of this 5 day grace period, but Community Education reserves the right to deduct a $10 processing fee after this time. Special events and trips are non-transferable and non-refundable.

Refunds are given only if Community Education cancels a class. Refunds can take up to one month to process, due to the nature of the accounting system at Las Positas College. Community Education reserves the right to change class locations, and instructors when necessary. Please no tape recording during classes without prior permission from the instructor.  If a refund is offered for any other reason except that we cancelled the class, the refund is subject to a $10 processing fee that will be removed from the refunded amount.

Community Education at Las Positas College is pleased to welcome and admit students 18 years of age and over of any race, color, religion, or national and ethnic origin to all classes. Students under 18 will be permitted only with prior consent of the instructor and staff.  Instructors have complete discretion in their classrooms to request that students be removed or refunded.

Minimum enrollment is required for a class to start. Register early to insure your place in a class and to avoid class cancellation. Walk-ins are welcome, unless otherwise noted in class descriptions.  WALK-INS PLEASE PAY BY CHECK OR CASH! Credit cards are not accepted at the classroom.


Where Classes Meet

Most classes meet in classrooms at Las Positas College, 3000 Campus Hill Dr., Livermore, CA  94551.  If a class is not on the LPC campus, the location will be noted in the course description.

PARKING

Parking on campus is by permit only. Daily parking permits are available for $2.00 from machines in each parking lot. Community Ed cannot "forgive" parking tickets issued by the LPC. Sorry, no exceptions.

THE FINE PRINT  CREDIT CARD INFORMATION: Before entering your credit card information, please make sure you are using a secure browser session (via SSL). For MS-Internet Explorer you would see a lock in the bottom-right portion of your browser session. Always be sure to sign out of the website properly before closing down your browser, or moving to another website, to further protect your privacy.

Credit card payment is divided into two steps:
(1) the collection of the credit card information, and
(2) the payment authorization.
The credit card information collection is performed over the Internet via a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology is the industry standard for commercial online data encryption of personal and credit card information (as used by amazon.com, eFollett.com, barnesandnoble.com). This requires that your Internet browser be configured to use SSL, otherwise the credit card transaction will not be secure.
The credit card payment authorization process uses a direct modem connection. Consequently the process is secure with no retransmission of your personal or credit card information over the Internet.
