Changes in Program The Education Fund reserves the right to cancel courses, to make substitution in instructors, and to change the days, times, and location of classes if necessary.
Enroll By Date The Enroll by Date has changed. Enrollment for courses offered during the Spring (January to June) closes in December, and for courses offered during the Fall (September to December) closes in May.
Refundable Deposit New Rule Regarding Refundable Deposit: The refundable deposit must be received, from a minimum of 15 members, 30 days before the first class meeting for a course to be conducted.
Session Guarantee Bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances may cause the cancellation of a class session. Bad weather cancellation information will be e-mailed to the address that we have on file.
The Education Fund has instituted the "refundable deposit" in order to ensure that members who sign up for courses make every effort to actually complete the courses. The amounts for the "refundable deposit" will be based on course hours and are substantially less than the actual cost of similar courses taken outside of the union (and you get your deposit back when you complete the union course).
If circumstances arise where an enrollee may have to withdraw from a class, a refund may be made on a case by case basis. Request for a refund must be submitted in writing, to the Workplace Literacy Program Coordinator. Lack of attendance does not constitute withdrawal and eligibility for a refund.
