Register Early! Prompt registration helps avoid disappointment when classes fill quickly. It also helps us avoid cancelling a class due to low enrollment, only to find that last minute registrations would have filled it. Early registrations also make it easier if we need to contact you for any reason before your class begins.

No News Is Good News You are registered for a class unless we notify you otherwise. To help keep our classes reasonably priced, we do not send out confirmation notices. Occasionally, a class may fill as your registration is being processed. You will receive a personal call should this occur.

For Emergency Cancellations When bad weather or other emergencies cause cancellation of the regular day school program, community education activities during the day or immediately after school are also cancelled. Evening activities may be held if there is significant improvement in the emergency situation. When an emergency develops during the day, we will attempt to broadcast evening cancellation notices over KSUM/ KFMC radio or on our Facebook page.

REGISTER ON TIME TO SAVE MONEY Persons interested in enrolling in a Community Education class may register by these four easy methods. Most programs have limited enrollment and are filled on a first-paid, first served basis. New Payment Policy: Payment must accompany registration to ensure enrollment in a class. Registrations without payment will be put on hold until payment is received. Registrations/payments received the date the class begins will be charged an additional $5 processing fee. All walk-ins and late registrations will be charged the $5 processing fee. Participants are strongly encouraged to register early. These changes are made in an effort to provide quality service through an enrollment process more efficient and fair to all participants. If you have questions regarding this change, please feel free to contact the Community Education office at (507) 235-3141. Each class has a minimum required enrollment. If this minimum is not met one week prior to a class starting, the class will be canceled and enrollment fees returned.

CONFIRMATION No News is Good News! Once your fee is paid, you are officially registered. Plan to attend the first session as scheduled. You will be notified only if the class is cancelled.

FOR EMERGENCY CANCELLATIONS When bad weather or other emergencies cause cancellation of the regular day school program, community education activities during the day or immediately after school are also cancelled. Evening activities may be held if there is significant improvement in the emergency situation. When an emergency develops during the day, we will attempt to broadcast evening cancellation notices over KSUM/KFMC radio or on our Facebook page.
