How do I get a refund for class cancellations or changes due to Coronavirus?
What are your hours of operation?
FOR SPRING & SUMMER 2020:
We will not have regular office hours due to Coronavirus. Find more information about our response to Coronavirus.
Continuing Education office hours are usually Monday through Friday 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m. You may make an appointment with any staff member as needed. We are currently working remotely.
I’m having trouble registering on your website. Who can I contact?
Do you offer any type of payment plan or scholarships?
Unfortunately, financial assistance is usually from federal funds and reserved for credit-based and degree-based programs and therefore is NOT applicable for Continuing Education classes and programs. We also aren't able to offer any type of payment plan, though we do take most credit cards. If you are eligible for unemployment benefits, please contact your local office to determine your eligibility.
If you work for Seattle Colleges, please see Professional Development Funds for Seattle Colleges Employees.

We offer many online courses through educational partners, and some we offer to you directly with our own curriculum and local instructors.
If the online partner is LERN or Ed2GO, you can read FAQs about online classes through LERN and find out more about online classes with Ed2GO. If the online partner is MindEdge and you have questions, see the MindEdge FAQ.
Can my child take a class?
Continuing Education programs are designed for adult learners. Unless a course or program is specifically geared toward a younger age group, students under 18 years must obtain permission to enroll according to the following guidelines:
- 16 and 17 year old students may enroll in some classes with the required release form. However, certain classes require a minimum age of 18 or 21.
- 14 to 15 year old students may enroll in some classes if accompanied by a parent or adult guardian over 18, registered and participating in the same class. This does not apply to every class, so please contact us to confirm that the class your interested in is eligible.
