  • If I miss a class, can I make it up in another section or in another semester?

    No, in most cases another section is not available, and we do not carry over registrations from one session to another. If handouts were distributed in the class you missed, you can request those handouts at the next class from the course attendant. Some individual programs, such as ESL, the Foreign Language Program and Center for College Readiness have specific policies on missed classes. Please call or consult the website.

  • Is my course tax deductible?

    An individual may be able to claim a tax deduction or a tax credit for the cost of attending this continuing education program. However, we do not issue 1098-Ts. Non-academic credit programs such as continuing education courses do not require a 1098-T per IRS guidelines. Please keep a copy of your receipt and consult with your tax advisor about whether your payment meets the regulations that apply to tax deductions and tax credits. The University’s Federal Tax ID Number is 74-1109620.
