Non-Credit Community Enrichment & C.E.U. Programs Policies
The rules, regulations, policies, fees and other charges, courses of study, and academic requirements that appear on this Web site were in effect at the time the site was created. Like everything found on this site, they are provided for informational purposes only, and they do not constitute a contract between the college and any student, applicant for admission or other person.
Whether noted elsewhere on this site or not, the college reserves the right to change, eliminate, and/or add to any existing (and to introduce additional) rules, regulations, policies, fees and other charges, courses of study and academic requirements. Whenever it does so, the college will give as much advance notice as it considers feasible and appropriate, but it reserves the right in all cases to do so without notice.
Course Confirmation / Room Location
After registering for your course(s), you will be handed or mailed a student schedule. Please verify the course number, date and time. Room locations are printed on this schedule. Please read your confirmation carefully! Please check this page for location codes.
Community Enrichment courses may be cancelled due to insufficient enrollments. Therefore, it is in your best interest to register early! The Community Enrichment office will contact you approximately five days before class starts. Staff members will be glad to help you select an alternative course or section. Community Enrichment courses may also be cancelled due to inclement weather and are subject to the Salem State College Policy on Closings Due to Emergencies.
Online courses are never cancelled! Please review the Online Course Policies for further information.
