Q: How can I register for classes?

 A: There are four easy ways to register for a class.

Online: You can register online by browsing our online catalog and clicking "ENROLL NOW" below the class of your choice. Then, follow the easy directions.

By Mail: Fill out the registration form in the back of your paper catolog and mail it to us with payment for the class amount.

By Phone: Need help with registering, want to ask questions, or can't find the class of your choice? Call us at (973) 443-9222 during the business hours indicated on our home page to speak with someone in the office.

In Person: Drop in during our business hours and we will be happy to help you register.

 

Q:  What is The Adult School's refund policy?

A:  There are no refunds to registrants who do not attend one-session courses or one-day trips once the date of the course/trip passed.  If the school cancels a course/trip, we will refund the entire amount including the registration fee if this was the only course/trip you registered for.  Refunds are given in the same method of payment made.  Please allow four weeks for processing refunds by check or credit card.  Student withdrawals from a course one week before the start date will be issued a refund less a $10 withdrawal charge.  Refunds for a trip may not be subject to a refund, or may have to cover the incurred expenses unless the seat can be sold.  You may also be eligible to receive a website credit for extenuating circumstances that require you to miss class time outside of the refund criteria listed above.   A website credit does not offer you money back, but rather remains in your name on our registration system and the amount will automatically be reduced from the amount due the next time you register.  Website credits are valid for two years after the date of issuance.  Should the credit not be used within two years of its issuance, it will be removed from the registration system and no longer available to you.   

 

Q:  How do I know if the school where my class is being held is closed?

 A:  If the school district determines that the schools will be closed then no Adult School classes will meet.  Announcements will be on our answering machine, our website, and you may will receive an e-mail update.  Missed classes will be made up by mutual agreement of the students and the teacher.

 

Q: I want to teach a class through the Adult School. How can I make that happen?

 A: The Adult School is always looking for new and original ideas to add to our course selection. Please complete our New Instructor Class Proposal Form here for each class idea you have along with a copy of your resume. Call our office (973-443-9222) or e-mail us at tasinfo@theadultschool.org if you have any questions, and we will give you more information on our class proposal process. We will not consider courses that compete with existing offerings. 

 

Q: I want to have an influence at The Adult School, and give back to my community. How can I become a trustee?

 A: If you are interested in helping us oversee the organization, please let us know. Send an e-mail to tasinfo@theadultschool.org, or call the office.
