The Adult Education Department must cancel courses that do not attain the required minimum enrollment. The Adult Education Department reserves the right to cancel, discontinue, postpone or combine courses before or at the first class meeting. Attempts are made to contact all students whose courses have been canceled. In the event a class is cancelled, a full refund of the registration fee will be given.

Certain risks may be involved in each course described herein. Polaris Career Center shall not be liable for any loses or injury whatsoever to persons or property arising from enrollment in any course described herein. By registering for a course, the registrant acknowledges the assumption of those risks and releases Polaris Career Center from any liability whatsoever. Specific courses or activities may require registrants to sign a separate waiver of liability and release. Students enrolled in courses offered through the Adult Education Department are subject to Polaris Career Center regulations and policies including those pertaining to student conduct and discipline.
Registration is open to all students, residents and nonresidents, over 16 years of age who are not enrolled in a regular high school program. High school students must have written permission from their parents prior to registration for adult education classes.
Polaris offers an open parking policy after 4PM, in which Visitors/Students/Staff can park in any of the available parking areas in the front, back or side lots. During the daytime, however, students should park in the right side lot that is adjacent to Old Oak Blvd.
Senior Citizens Discount
Senior citizens will receive a 10 percent discount on the published tuition fee (discount does not apply to material fees) except where indicated. Note: Senior Citizens include persons over the age of 65 who can produce proof of age and identity.
Closing of the daytime classes at Polaris Career Center DOES NOT necessarily mean that the evening classes will be canceled. The decision to cancel evening classes will be made by Adult Education administration by 3:00 PM. Students should listen to the radio or TV or call the school at 440-891-7600 for further information.
Withdrawals and Refunds
Registration does not automatically carry with it the right of a refund or reduction of indebtedness in cases of inability to attend class or in cases of withdrawal. The student assumes the risk of all changes in business or personal affairs.
- Full refunds will be issued when a class is canceled by the Adult Education Department, or fees may be applied to another class.
- No refunds will be issued after the first class meeting. There will be no refunds for one-night classes. The Motorcycle Basic Rider Course and Experience Rider Course tuition fee is non-refundable.
- A $10 cancellation fee will be withheld from all refunds except for Job Training Programs which have a $100 withdrawal fee.
- Books and supplies are non-refundable.
Withdrawal from a job training program is considered official on the date notification is received in the adult education office from the student. Tuition fees will continue to accrue until notification is received from the student. A $100 cancellation fee will be charged for all job training program withdrawals. Refunds are prorated and based on the hours the program has been held until withdrawal notification date. Books and material fees are non-refundable. If the student paid by check or cash, the refund will be paid by a school check. If the student paid by credit card, the refund will be credited on the card.
Special Notation: Due to the fact that Adult Classes are self-supporting, refund policies will be strictly adhered to. Refund checks due students who are eligible will be issued from the treasurer’s office. Refunds will be mailed within 30 days after the beginning of the class. However, every attempt will be made to process refunds at the earliest date possible.
