Farmington Continuing Education
Enrollment/Registration: There is a non-refundable $6 processing fee per student each semester. Assume you are enrolled in the class for which you are registered. No registration confirmation will be mailed to you. In the event of a filled class or cancellation, we will make every attempt to notify you by phone, mail or email. We cancel classes with low enrollment shortly before they start. Please register early to make sure the course you want has adequate enrollment to be offered. Visit www.fpsct.org/fce to register ONLINE 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Senior Citizens: The Farmington Board of Education waives the tuition fee for Farmington senior citizens (age 65+) for one course per term except for one session classes, trips or other classes that have a senior fee listed. Senior citizens are responsible for all processing and supply fees. Seniors must identify themselves at time of registration with their birth date to receive the senior rate. If a course has a Senior Fee (65+), a senior from any town many register for this course.
Waiting Lists: Will be taken on classes/trips with enrollment limits. We will notify you when there are openings.
Supplies and Materials: Are required in some classes and are noted in the class descriptions. Lists will be available online at www.fpsct.org/fce. Textbooks can be purchased online at amazon.com; half.com; varsitybooks.com; mylibros.com; books-by-isbn.com; or paperbackswap.com.
Gift Certificates: Make great gifts and they are available for all classes/trips. For additional information, please call the office at 860-404-0290.
Tours & Trips: The cost for trips or tours are non-refundable but are transferable to another person. Everyone must pay full tuition. No senior discounts.
Instructors: Come from a wide variety of professional and personal backgrounds. Many are certified teachers or members of the community with areas of expertise they are qualified to share. They are not to promote or sell products, make specific financial investment recommendations or offer consultations to participants. We respect their ability as instructors but make no commitment to the products they sell.
Catalog Distribution: Catalogs are mailed to all residents of Farmington, Unionville, Avon, Canton, Collinsville, Burlington and Harwinton and out of town residents who have previously taken a class. Catalogs are also available at the Farmington Continuing Education office, local town halls and libraries. To get on our mailing list, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-404-0290.
Inclement Weather Policy: If Farmington Public Schools or Region #10 is closed, Continuing Education classes in the closed district will not meet. In case of a “delayed opening/early closing” or if severe weather develops during the day, please check for official notices on our website at www.fpsct.org/fce. Cancellations will also be announced on TV channels NBC & WFSB. Cancelled classes are postponed to a later date, usually by adding on a session after the last scheduled class.
