We will make every effort to reschedule such classes. In the event of inclement weather, tune into your local radio or television station for information about closings.

PAYMENT PLAN POLICY Continuing Education offers payment plans for select Professional Development courses. Eligible courses are taught in-house with a tuition fee of $300 or more. Online courses or courses offered via third-party educational partners do not qualify for this payment plan option. However, some of these programs may be eligible for financial assistance offered through the educational partner.
