CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSES
Continuing Education courses provide life-long opportunities which are available at convenient times in many locations. Our courses are non-college-credit courses which are open to anyone 18 years of age or older. In some cases, 16 and 17-year-old students with special needs may be admitted. A notarized parental release is required, which must be accompanied by the principal's or superintendent's permission. Courses are designed to improve your basic skills, occupational skills, enrichment, or just for fun.

ADMISSION
Halifax Community College is a public, two-year, educational institution with an open door policy. The college provides vocational, technical, college transfer, and life-long learning opportunities for anyone of suitable age who has the desire to learn.

REGISTRATION
Students may register at the first class meeting provided pre-registration is not required. Certain classes require minimum test scores for admission. To register you need your Social Security number. Fees are waived for North Carolina residents who are 65 or older (excludes self-supporting courses). Students are responsible for any and all supplies and books needed. REGISTRATION FEES WILL BE REFUNDED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE N.C. COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM'S POLICY. THE FOLLOWING REFUND POLICY WILL BE OBSERVED FOR ALL EXTENSION COURSES:

  1. A student who officially withdraws from an extension class(es) prior to the first class meeting shall be eligible for a 100 percent refund. Also, a student is eligible for a 100 percent refund if an applicable class fails to "make" due to insufficient enrollment.
  2. After the respective class begins, a 75 percent refund shall be made upon the request of the student if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to or on the 10 percent point of the scheduled hours of the class. Note: This Rule is applicable regardless of the number of times the class meets or the number of hours the class is scheduled to meet.
  3. A 100 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from a contact hour class prior to the first day of class of the academic semester or term or if the college cancels the class. A 75 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from a contact hour class on or before the tenth calendar day of the class.

PRE-REGISTRATION
You may pre-register for all Continuing Education courses before the first class by coming to the Continuing Education Center and paying the appropriate registration fee. You may also preregister for most courses by telephoning 536-7261.
YOUR PRE-REGISTRATION IS IMPORTANT TO THE SUCCESS OF THE COURSE, SO PLEASE REGISTER EARLY! IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU ATTEND THE FIRST CLASS MEETING! A COURSE MAY BE CANCELLED IF FEWER THAN TEN STUDENTS ENROLL. MANY COURSES REQUIRE THAT YOU ARE IN ATTENDANCE THE FIRST CLASS MEETING.

COST
Registration fees for Continuing Education courses vary with the type of course. Please refer to the fees noted for each category to determine the cost of each course. For each computer course there is a technology fee of $5. A parking fee of $3 will be charged for all semester length courses. All Literacy Education courses are free. North Carolina residents 65 or older are fee exempt unless the course is a self-supported course.
Halifax Community College does not discriminate in the admission and treatment of students nor in the recruitment and employment of personnel.
REMINDER: Although we make every effort to avoid mistakes, our schedule of courses is not a contract. The college does not assume liability for errors-typographical or otherwise. We welcome corrections, nonetheless, and encourage you to let us know of any error you may find.

REPETITION POLICY
Students who take an occupational extension course more than twice within a five-year period shall pay a fee for the course based on a formula established by the North Carolina Community College System. Students may repeat the course more than once if the repetition is required for certification, licensure, or recertification.
Senior citizens who are legal residents of North Carolina and wish to enroll in an occupational extension course will not be required to pay for the course twice. Those who take a course more than twice within five years shall pay a fee based on a formula established by the N. C. Community College System.
