Kennewick Community Education Policies

Participation Agreement

By registering for a Community Education class, participants understand that participation is at their own risk. Participants, their children, heirs, executors, and administrators agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Kennewick School District, its employees, agents, contributing organizations, officers, representatives, and facilities from all claims resulting from any theft, physical injury, death, or pecuniary loss as a direct or indirect consequence of participation in this activity/class. If the participant is under 18 years old, their parent or guardian agrees to these terms on their behalf.

Registration Policies

First Come, First Served
Registrations are posted in the order received until the class is filled. Online registration closes the day of the class. Register early! Many classes fill quickly. All registrations must be made in advance. Instructors are not able to register participants at the class.

Age Requirements
Unless otherwise noted, Community Education classes are geared toward an adult audience; however, younger students are permitted in some classes. If you would like to register a student younger than age 16, please call the Community Education office prior to enrolling.

Wait Lists
All classes are limited. If the class you wish to register for is filled, you can choose to be placed on an automatic wait list in the order received. Our office will contact you if space becomes available. Please note: you are not officially enrolled if you are on a waiting list.

Cancellation Policy

Refunds for classes over $25 (less processing fees) may be issued if you call and cancel at least two business days before the class starts. No refunds will be given for less than a two-day notice.

There are no refunds for classes under $25. You may choose to send a friend or relative in your place, or you may be able to transfer to another class of the same price if space is available.

A full refund will be issued for classes that are cancelled by Community Education. Refunds are issued by check and will be processed within two to four weeks.
