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 and follow the instructions to complete your registration.

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 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:  Refund Policy: NO REFUND will be given once a class has started.  The registration fee is non-refundable, but class cost will be reimbursed if student withdraws at least one week prior to the start of class.  For example, if class begins on a Monday, The Adult School must receive the withdrawal/refund request by midnight of the Sunday one week prior to the start date.  Refunds will be issued in the original form of payment, minus a $5 processing fee for each dropped class.  Refunds for trips vary by the trip agency and may not be available unless the seat can be re-sold.  You may have to cover incurred expenses.  A full refund will be issued if the Adult School must cancel a class or trip.     

Q: When does my website credit expire?

A website credit remains in your name on our registration system, and the credit will automatically be applied to your balance 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:  In general, if the school district in which your classes are held is closed due to weather, all Adult School classes will be canceled in that location.  Closings due to inclement weather will be announced on our website or by calling the recorded message at 973-443-9222.  Instructors will make every effort to re-schedule canceled classes. 

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.
