Jan-Feb 2014 Course Guide RESOLUTION REVAMP

It’s not that we don’t believe your champagne fueled promises to make this year “Lean, Mean 2014.” It’s just that come New Years Day, we all know that brunch beats the gym. Rather than making this the 10th year in a row you vow to lose 10 lbs, why not enroll in a BCAE class (or two!) and make 2014 your year to push limits? Whether you’re looking to learn to paint, try yoga, or tap into the local culture, there’s always something new to discover. Sign up today and surprise yourself!

PEER BEHIND Theater geeks: the BCAE’s Behind the Curtain is back and better than ever! This term we’re touring and viewing shows at The Lyric Stage Company of Boston, SpeakEasy Stage Company, and Blue Man Group. Block out your schedule and take your place to see how cool Boston’s performing arts scene really is!

EAT UP

Unlike our friends in New York, Bostonians would never, ever subject ourselves to a two hour wait for baked goods. That said, Dominque Ansel’s cronuts look crazy good, and we are certainly not above tapping into some of that New England ingenuity and learning how to make them ourselves. That’s why we definitely won’t miss Taking on the Trend: Cronuts 101.

THROW DOWN

Did a scuffle usurp the lively conversation you were enjoying at A Downton Style Dinner Party? It certainly won’t do to look like a dandy. Prepare for fisticuffs in MMA Training at Combat Sports Boston! This class will have you taking off your jacket, throwing down your white gloves and giving old Lord Grantham the what-for in no time. Right-o!

Pip pip, The BCAE

GROWTH Computers & Technology

Get Schooled You find it a little cruel that a program that makes you feel incompetent would ever be dubbed “Excel.” Truth be told, you’re even still a little stuck on why you have to press “start” in order to “shut down.” Obviously, it’s time to get you schooled in the world of computers. The majority of the BCAE’s classes are for bona fide beginners; here are a few specifically designed with YOU in mind.

ImPortant Information & Policies The BCAE reserves the right to cancel classes, change times or locations, and change instructors when necessary. Prices are subject to change. In the event of a discrepancy between the printed and online versions of our catalog, information shown online will be considered correct. Course Cancellations

Student Services

We occasionally have to cancel classes due to low enrollment. In the event we cancel your class, you may either request a credit or a refund in full for that class or transfer into another class, space permitting. If you transfer into a class that’s more expensive than the cancelled one, you’ll be responsible for any difference in tuition or fees. If your new class is less expensive, you may request a credit or a refund of the difference.

All transfer, credit, and withdrawal requests must be made in person or by phone (617-2674430) through our Student Services office during its normal business hours: Monday–Friday, 9:00am–5:00pm. Requests made outside these hours, including weekends and holidays, will not be accepted or processed.

Transfers We permit transfers from one class to another, but only if there is still space available in the new class, if both classes occur during the same term, and if you request the transfer at least five (5) business days before the first session of the class for which you’ve already registered. Transfer requests must be submitted in person or by phone to our Student Services office during normal business hours (see below). You will be responsible for any difference in tuition or materials fees if the new class is more expensive than the one from which you’re transferring; if your new class is less expensive, we’ll apply the difference as a credit towards your future registrations. Transfers are non-refundable, and no transfers are allowed for off-site classes.

Withdrawals If you withdraw from a class at least five (5) business days before the first session, you may be eligible for a full credit or refund for the tuition and materials fee you have paid for the class. Withdrawal requests must be submitted in person or by phone to our Student Services office during normal business hours (see below). Withdrawal requests that are received less than five (5) business days prior to the first session may qualify for a partial credit or refund, subject to additional requirements. For details, please refer to the full withdrawal and refund policy that appears on our website: www.bcae.org. Off-site classes are non-refundable, as are classes for which our catalog says, “no discounts, transfers, or credits apply.” Please note that our $7 per person per term registration fee is not refundable.
