Notes & Reminders
Enrollment / Registration: There is a non-refundable $6 processing fee per student each semester (summer/fall and winter/spring). Courses with low enrollment are subject to cancellation shortly before the program starts. Register early to make sure the course you want has adequate enrollment to be offered. In the event of a filled course or cancellation, we will make every attempt to notify you by phone and email.
Senior Citizens: The Farmington and Region 10 Boards of Education waive the tuition fee for Farmington, Burlington and Harwinton senior citizens (age 65+) for one course per term unless otherwise noted. Senior citizens are responsible for processing fees, one session courses, and supply fees. Senior citizens must identify themselves when registering to receive the senior rate.
Waiting Lists: Waiting lists will be taken on courses and trips with enrollment limits. We will notify you when there are openings.
Inclement Weather Policy: If Farmington Public Schools or Region 10 is closed, Continuing Education courses in the closed district will not meet. In case of a delayed opening or early closing, or, if severe weather develops during the day, visit www.fpsct.org/fce for information. Cancellations will also be announced on TV channels NBC and WFSB. Cancelled courses are postponed to a later date.

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.

Once the decision has been made to run a course or trip, NO refund will be given unless a substitute can be found OR there is a medical emergency. Full refunds will be automatic if a course or trip is cancelled. Trips are non-refundable BUT are transferable to another person.
