Community and Continuing Education Registration

Community and Continuing Education requires payment at the time of registration. If payment is not received at the time of registration, the student will be dropped from the course(s).

Children in Community and Continuing Education Courses

Community and Continuing Education courses are designed to meet the learning needs of adult learners, unless otherwise designated. We do not provide onsite day care and do not allow unregistered children to attend class sessions or sit unsupervised in public areas.

Children under the age of 16 that want to register for a course not designated for children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also registered and will be in attendance at all class sessions with them. Prior approval for children is required by the instructor and program developer or department manager. To make a request, please call 253-840-8451 and allow 10 working days before the course begins for processing of your request.

If granted permission to participate, children must be registered with their legal name and birthdate.   

Access and Disability Services (ADS)

Contact ADS to request accommodations due to a disability. If you are unsure of your needs, ADS is happy to consult and answer your questions. Contact ADS as soon as possible, as some accommodations take time to implement. Contact information is on the ADS website.
