Policies

The Center for Continuing Education strives to provide positive and engaging experiences for its students and instructors. The following policies allow us to meet our educational and financial goals while offering exceptional service to our constituents.

Cancellation Policy

Course Cancellation: The Center for Continuing Education is charged with being financially self-sustaining; therefore, enrollment minimums are established for every class to ensure our fiscal responsibility. The CCE markets all class offerings to increase student participation.

Should a class not meet its pre-determined enrollment minimum one week prior to the scheduled start of the class, it will be cancelled and all students will be issued refunds in the form of their original payment (credit card refund or check refund).

Class Session Cancellation: In the case a class session needs to be cancelled due to instructor illness/emergency, you will receive a phone call and/or email from the Center for Continuing Education to notify you of the cancellation. Please check your messages prior to class.

The CCE also follows university closings for emergencies and inclement weather. These announcements are posted at www.marshall.edu. The CCE will make every effort to contact you by phone and/or email in the case of weather closures, but may not be able to do so due to university closures. In the case of inclement weather, please check Marshall’s main website for updates.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel their registration up to one week prior to the start of a class and receive a full refund of the class registration fee. The cancellation/refund deadline date is posted with each class listing. To cancel your registration, you must send an email to cce@marshall.edu with your name, address, and class to cancel prior to close of business (4:30 p.m. Eastern time) on the cancellation deadline date.

Due to the self-sustaining financial model of the CCE, refunds will not be issued after the cancellation deadline except in the case of documented personal emergencies as approved on a case-by-case basis.

Student Conduct

While those registered for Center for Continuing Education classes are not degree-seeking students, they are subject to Marshall University’s Student Rights and Responsibilities Policy.

The following behavior will not be tolerated in any CCE class and may result in removal from our program and from campus, as well as forfeiture of all course fees paid. Unacceptable behavior includes, but is not limited to:

  • Intentional disruption or obstruction of teaching or learning in the classroom;
  • Dishonesty and/or misrepresenting oneself in the classroom and/or during correspondence with instructors and staff;
  • Refusal to adhere to CCE or Marshall University policies as stated in printed or online materials;
  • Refusal to comply with instructors’ parameters for classroom deportment as stated in the syllabus or explained in the classroom;
  • Physical abuse or threats thereof toward the instructor, classmates, or oneself;
  • Attendance in classes without proper registration and payment and/or misuse of university resources.

Enrollment in Center for Continuing Education classes is discretionary. The CCE reserves the right to withhold registration or require withdrawal from the program of any student.
