Registration Information

Some Frequently Asked Questions:

How will I know when I'm registered?

Confirmations are mailed out following payment for class registration. Double check this information to insure correct class registration, dates, times, policies, rooms.

If you have NOT received either official confirmation of payment OR communication that your class request was closed out/cancelled, please contact our office staff to clarify registration and obtain your room assignment.

Refunds will NOT be processed for missed classes based on failure to receive mailed confirmations. What happens if I’m closed out of a course or if the course is cancelled or details are changed?

The Office makes every attempt possible to notify you in either case; confirm your current telephone number(s) at registration.

You will receive a full refund for courses cancelled by the College.

The College reserves the right to cancel any course, to make changes in fees or substitutions in faculty, to change days/hours when necessary. Every effort is made to provide corrected information as soon as possible should the bulletin or other printed materials containing course information be modified.

How do I find my class?

Registration confirmations contain room assignments for most classes. Use the map printed on the reverse side of the confirmation to identify campus buildings.

If a room assignment is not shown on your confirmation, please call the office (718-631-6343) at least one day prior to scheduled class start.
