How do I know which campus my class will be held on?

With the design of the new catalog this year, we have included a Table of Contents at the start of the catalog with page numbers listed for each individual campus, as well as the page numbers for class offerings that are available across the region. Each campus page header is indicated with a different color for each campus. Note:  For easy online access, we have also included the website information for that campus at the bottom of each page.

Sorry, the discount cannot be used for special community classes, trips, or travel opportunities (including field trips), online courses, or credit classes.

Is there a discount available for seniors?

In addition to the early-bird specials, we offer a “Silver Dollar Discount”, which is an extra 5% discount for anyone over 62.
