Registration & Fees

Please note that Student ID numbers are required to purchase books at the College (Book) Store. These numbers are given to you when you register at the Continuing Education window for class.

Admission Fees

Admission to all publicly offered continuing education programs is open to adults 18 years of age and older on a first-come, space-available basis unless special admission requirements must be met. Individuals ages 16 and 17 can be served if a minor applicant form is completed prior to the class start date. However, the student must meet any pre-requisite or admission requirements. Certain classes require a background check, placement tests, and a high school diploma or GED. All classes require pre-payment (cash, check, Master Card, American Express, Discover, or Visa).

Additional Fees

Course fees are noted with each course listing. Payment of additional fees is due at time of registration, along with the course fee. Please check course listing for deadlines. Some courses have additional charges for supplies, insurance, or other essential expenses, which are also noted in the course descriptions. In most courses, students are responsible for purchasing any special materials required for the class. No registration is complete without the payment of all applicable fees or receipt of official authorization for payment from the registrant’s employer.

Occupational Extension Course Repeat Policy

North Carolina legislation states that a student enrolling in the same occupational extension course more than twice within a five-year period will pay the full student cost of the course per scheduled hour or the current state fee, whichever is higher. This provision is waived if course repetition is required for certification, licensure, or recertification. For example, fire, rescue, or law enforcement personnel may repeat courses which are required by certification or licensing provisions and are directly job-related.
