Q. How do I know if there is space in class?
A. If a class is already filled, a waiting list button appears, and you have the option of placing yourself on the waiting list. If a seat becomes available, we will contact you.
Q. Who teaches the classes?
A. Classes are taught by experts in their fields who present class materials in a format that is appropriate to the audience served. The classes are not-for-credit and do not require homework or testing.
Q. Who can enroll?
A. Classes are open to all members of the community. Classes that have age restrictions will indicate this in the class descriptions or programs.
Q. Should I register early?
A. Early registration is very important! Class sizes are limited and early enrollment may assure your place in a high-demand class. Classes that do not meet minimum student enrollment may be canceled before the first session. Your timely registration may help ensure this necessary enrollment figure.
Q. When/how do I pay the registration fees?
A. Registration fees are due at the time of registration. Registrations will not be processed without the payment of fees. Phone and online enrollment requires payment by credit card (Visa/MC) only. Walk-in and mail-in registration can be processed by credit card or check at the Community Education office at 321 Golf Club Rd., Pleasant Hill, CA, 94523, Library, L-146. Students may not give instructors registrations or payments.
Q. Can I register after a class has started?
A. Most classes allow late registration. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about late registration.
Q. Do you offer any kind of financial aid?
A. Unfortunately, there is no financial aid available to assist with class fees. Fee-based classes are not state-funded and we must use class fees to pay all costs of the classes. College for Kids program does offer a limited amount of scholarships. Please see our College for Kids scholarship page for more information.
Q. Do I have to pay for parking when attending a Community Education class?
A. If you enroll in a Pleasant Hill or San Ramon campus class, please visit DVC's web page for more information on the parking policy.
Q. How do I contact Police Services?
A. Please visit the DVC Police Services web page for information pertaining to their services and contact information.
Q. What is your refund policy?
A. As stated in the Contra Costa Community College District Business Procedure 3.05,page 4, item #4: Fee Refunds. Full refund of fees will be made if (1) the college cancels the activity, (2) the activity is over-enrolled and the enrollment request is denied, or (3) the enrollee requests a refund one week prior to the first session of the activity (7days). No partial refunds will be made.
*Please note that any credit card refund request will have a processing fee of 2.5%.
Q. Will I get a refund if I drop?
A. Please view details below
A. We understand that unexpected life events happen. We live in a time of unforeseen circumstances and we strive to sympathize with our community. If you need to withdraw from a class 24 hours before the start date, please contact us email@example.com.
Q. Are there places to eat on campus?
A. There are plenty of places to eat on campus, but hours are very limited. Please visit the food services pages for more information. If you are scheduled for an evening, weekend or Friday afternoon class, please plan to bring your own non-perishable meal and beverage, if needed.
Q. Why do classes get canceled?
A. Class sessions may be canceled due to low enrollment. Because our fee-based classes are self-supporting and not funded by taxpayers’ dollars, we rely on registration fees to pay for all associated costs.
Q. Disability accommodations
A. Diablo Valley College is ADA compliant. If you have special needs, please contact the Community Education Office at 925-969-4600.
