2018 March Add On Classes

Because we did not have many snow days during our Winter semester, we’re going to add the following classes that we did not have room for in the Winter Semester (Jan-Feb.)

If any of these classes do not meet because of a snow day, that class and the remaining classes will be pushed forward one week.  We will update the new information as it occurs.

There is no online pre-registration for these classes.  It is all on a pay-as-you-go basis at the discounted “SALE” price of $25 per class (normally $35).  However, the Spring Semester is ready for online registration.  Please do not wait until the last moment to register.  It would be very helpful if some of you registered early to avoid the rush at the end and also make it easier for me to keep accurate records.
