General Information About Classes:

On absences: We recognize that people have many demands on their time and that not all students will be able to attend all classes within a course session. If you cannot attend all classes, talk with your instructor so they can give you pointers on how to catch up. There is no way to “make up” missed sessions, but if you only miss a class or two you should be fine. If for some reason we must cancel a class, we will offer the option of a make up class after the session or a refund for that class.

Refund Policy: Station L class sizes are balanced carefully to ensure an appropriate number of participants in each session. If you cancel your registration 5 or more days before class begins you will receive a full refund, after which time you can receive a credit if we can fill your spot before the class starts. After the first class meeting, no refunds or credits are available.

Wait List: If the class you wish to take is full, you can sign up for the wait list here.

If you have already signed up for the waitlist, but haven’t heard anything from Staiton L Staff, don’t worry! Your name is still on the list, and we will contact you when you near the top. Thanks for your patience.
