Cancellation Policy


Please register on time and in advance to avoid courses and programs being cancelled.  Battle Ground Community Education is supported by course fees; therefore we must establish a minimum enrollment and cancel courses that do not reach that minimum. That decision is always determined at least 48 hours before class is scheduled to start.

In the event your class is cancelled, our department will make every effort to contact you. Be sure that your contact information with daytime phone numbers is complete and up to date on your registration/student profile.

If your course is cancelled by our department you may transfer to another course or request a full refund of course fees. Course fee refunds due to class cancellation take approximately three to four weeks to process and are issued based on the same manner in which the course fee was paid, either credit card or check.

Refund Policy


Because instructor salaries are paid by the fees collected and because students are denied enrollment when the class maximum is met, we must limit our refund policy. A refund will only be issued if received in writing 7 working days prior to the beginning of class, camp or recreation program. All customer initiated refunds are subject to a $11 administrative fee. No cash/check refunds can be given to pre-paid card transactions. If you pay for a class with a pre-paid card, we can offer a credit voucher only. 


Refunds based on special circumstances must be requested in writing and will be considered but not guaranteed. All customer initiated refunds are subject to a $11 administrative fee.  If received, credit vouchers are valid for 2 years from the date they were issued.   


Summer School Refund Policy: A refund will only be issued if received in writing 14 days prior to the beginning of Summer School. All customer initiated refunds are subject to a $11 administrative fee. NO refunds or Credit vouchers will be considered under 13 days prior to the start of Summer School.  No refund will be considered for any students that are attending Summer School at a discounted rate.  No refund will be considered for Apex High School credit retrieval students.
