After that point, no refunds will be made under any circumstances. A 10% processing fee is retained on all student-initiated refunds.

  • Cash or money order payments are refunded by a check from Antelope Valley College. Visa, Discover, or Master Card payments are credited back to the same account.

  • Please allow a minimum two weeks for processing of refunds.

  • Most community services classes are not-for-credit and do not earn college credit. There are no transcripts or grades.

  • Community Services offers a variety of not-for-credit, continuing education (CEU) and certification courses

  • Registration for each class is accepted on a first come first serve basis. Please enroll early to ensure your participation.

  • Children under the age of 18 may not attend classes unless specific in the class listing or with prior consent of the program office.

  • Course fees may be paid three business days prior to the class start date. Financial aid is not available for Community Services courses. Some classes have material fees in addition to the registration fees and must be paid at first class meeting by either cash, money order, or check made out to the instructor.

  • Minimum enrollment levels must be met for each class in order for the class to remain self supporting.
