Community Education

● Fun ● Recreation ● Enrichment ●

The Community Education department at Metropolitan Community College is committed to providing fun and informative educational opportunities for adults. MCC’s mission of "Preparing students, serving communities and creating opportunities for all" is just as applicable to non-credit students as it is to those seeking degrees. Community Education carries out MCC's mission every day. 

We prepare students by offering on-campus and online classes.

Our program is built on serving the community around us – we offer non-credit, horizon-expanding classes where you can be adventurous, try activities you’ve dreamed of, learn new hobbies and skills, create art and much, much more! 

We create opportunities for all with an eye toward success. Our classes are not grade oriented, only life enriching. Whether you take a class to expand your skills or to expand your horizons, we have something to offer you.

A Word About Waiting to Enroll...

Every class has a minimum required enrollment. If this minimum is not met one week prior to the starting date, the class will be canceled. If you find a class you like, encourage a friend to join, too. Sometimes two or three people make the difference between "go" and "cancel."

Enrollment Verification

When you enroll for a class, please mark the date, time and location on your calendar. Classroom assignments will be provided in your emailed course confirmation. We will notify you if a class in which you have enrolled is full or has been canceled or rescheduled.

Refund Policy

Continuing/Community Education Refund Policy

We recognize you may occasionally need to drop your registration from a class. You must cancel your enrollment no less than seven (7) days (five (5) business days) before the class start date to receive a full refund*, minus a $25.00 processing fee and any other charges you may still owe. New enrollments made after the seven (7) day deadline are subject to the same refund policy as are all classes, even as short as one day. Therefore, any drops within seven (7) days before the start of the class will forfeit 100% of the tuition.

Payments made by credit card will be refunded to the credit card used and will appear on your monthly statement as soon as possible. You are responsible for interest charged to the credit card account while the refund is processed. Options for other refunds are: direct deposit to your bank account or a check mailed to your address of record.

Checks returned stop pay, account closed or credit card chargebacks are subject to a $25 processing fee and a hold will be placed your account. You will be dropped from all classes and be liable for the returned check fee and any non–refundable fees. Checks returned unpaid (NSF) must be replaced by cash or a money order. Otherwise, returned checks will be referred to a collection agency, which may assess further charges.

If there is space available in another class, you may transfer your enrollment no later than seven (7) days before the first day of class. Any drops/transfers after the seven (7) day deadline, must be completed by a Continuing/Community Education staff member.

The option to transfer your enrollment is available one time only. All withdrawals for extraordinary circumstances must be approved by the applicable Program Coordinator. There are no refunds for the 3-Wheel Basic Rider Course. Transfer to another date is available per the above stated policy.

Tuition and fees will be refunded 100% for any classes that are canceled by MCC.

Veterans' Refund Policy

The refund of the unused portion of tuition, fees, and other charges for veterans or eligible persons who fail to enter a course or withdraw or discontinue prior to completion will be made for all amounts paid which exceed the approximate pro-rata portion of the total charges that the length of the completed portion of the course bears to the total length of the course.

The proration will be determined on the ratio of the number of days or hours of instruction completed by the student to the total number of instructional days or hours in the course. The school may retain a registration fee of no more than $10, a breakage fee for no more than the exact amount of breakage, and fee for consumable supplies for no more than the amount of supplies actually consumed - 38 CFR 21.4255.

*Refunds may take several weeks to process and are dependent on your method of payment. Checks may take up to 6 weeks. Refunds to debit/credit cards will vary based on your financial institution. If you have any questions please call 816.604.5229 or email wedenroll@mcckc.edu.

Cancellations Due to Weather

When Metropolitan Community College District cancels classes, your Community Education class will not be held. Please be sure to listen for TV or radio announcements or check the college website for cancellations. If you are unsure, you may call 816.604.1000.

Should inclement weather prevent a class from occurring on the scheduled date, we will attempt to reschedule that class session. If you are unable to attend on the rescheduled date, you may request a refund.

If you have a disability which may impact your ability to access a class or community event, please contact the campus Disability Support Services (DSS) Coordinator. Early notification is encouraged as some accommodations may take time to put in place.
