Independent Study requires a $60 refundable book deposit to take classroom materials and/or textbooks home to use for study. Many of the medical, computer, and other Career Technical Education courses include the textbook with registration and a pre-loaded flash drive (please see our Catalog of Classes for details). Text and supplementary materials not included may be obtained from a source of your choosing; such as a local book store or an on-line source (we do not provide any refunds on textbook purchases). Book information, title, publisher, ISBN numbers are available upon request. You can view the book list on our web sites, or request a list from the campus office.

    8. Can I get a refund? Refunds will ONLY be given if the class is cancelled by the district. If a class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment, a full refund will be made. A minimum enrollment is required for each class. Refund checks will be mailed only to the registered party or individual who made the payment and may take 6-8 weeks for processing by our District Office. Please select your classes carefully as there are NO REFUNDS. If you miss the first class session, you may be dropped and there is no refund.
