Enrollment & Registration

Registration Fee: 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.

Senior Citizens: The Farmington Board of Education and Region #10 Board of Education waive the tuition fee for Farmington, Burlington and Harwinton Senior Citizens (age 65+) for one course PER semester. *NOTE: This cannot be applied to a one session course, used for a course that is offering a Senior Rate or used toward a trip. Senior citizens are responsible for the processing fee and supply fees. Seniors must identify themselves at the time of registration to receive the senior rate.

Waiting List: Will be taken on classes/trips with enrollment limits. We will notify you when there are openings.

Refunds: Will be given ONLY if a course if cancelled or there is an FCE initiated schedule change, which renders you unable to attend the program. Any refunds will be processed by check. Please allow two weeks for processing.

Inclement Weather Policy: If Farmington Public Schools or Region #10 is closed, Continuing Education classes in the closed districts 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. 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.

Supplies and Materials: Are required in some classes and are noted in the class descriptions. Lists will be available on our website.

Textbooks: Can be purchased online at amazon.com; half.com; varsitybooks.com; mylibros.com; books-by-isbn.com; paperbackswap.com.

Gift Certificates: Make great gifts and are available for all classes and/or 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 transferrable to another person. Everyone must pay full tuition. No senior discounts are available.

Instructors: Come from a wide variety of professional and personal backgrounds. Many are certified teacher 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, Harwinton and out of town residents who have previously taken a class. Catalogs are also available at the office, local town halls and libriaries. To get on our mailing list, email us at continuinged@fpsct.org or call (860) 404-0290.
