Continuing Education classes are self-supported; therefore, Bates will cancel a class if there are too few participants enrolled to cover the cost of the class. If your withdrawal notification is given at least one business day prior to the first day of class, or the class is canceled, you will receive a 100 percent refund. Bates reserves the right to cancel, reschedule class times and/or dates, or change instructors. We will notify you only if the class is canceled.
