Ques: Can I pay at the door?
Answ: Some classes (like QuickBooks or luncheon classes) require pre-registration and pre-payment. The class description will state this. For other classes, walk-ins are welcome.
Ques: I tried to register but I got a message saying registrations are no longer being accepted.
Answ: This means the class has filled. You may call us at 979-830-4137 and ask to be put on the waiting list. Then if space opens, we will let you know.
Ques: May I bring my child if I promise he/she will be quiet?
Answ: Children under 14 are not permitted in any of our classes. If there is a fee for the class, each person who attends must pay the fee, regardless of age.
Ques: Can I get a refund if I can't attend the class?
Answ: If you notify us far enough ahead before the date of the class—and we can find someone to take your place—then we will refund your registration fee.
Ques: If I can't attend, may I send someone in my place?
Answ: Yes . . . please call us in advance so we can change the name on the sign-in sheet.
Ques: Does the SBDC ever cancel classes?
Answ: Occasionally we must cancel classes due to low enrollment, instructor illness, weather, power outages, etc. We will contact you using the phone number and email address you provide in the registration process. We make every effort to contact you as soon as we know the class will not be held, and you will be given your choice of a refund or credit.
