Do I have to pre-register?
Preregistration is required for all classes. A minimum number of students must be enrolled. Also, because some of our instructors live out of town, it is necessary for them to make travel arrangements. These instructors need to know ahead of time their class enrollments and whether or not a class is going to make. A third reason for preregistration is that select courses require the use of a textbook or other materials. We must know before a class begins how many books to order or how many supply kits to prepare to ensure that every student has the materials required for that class.
Nothing cancels a class quicker than everyone waiting until the last possible minute to register. If you think you are interested in the class, please do register. If you find that you are unable to take the class after all, you can cancel up to three days before the class starts. If there are not enough registrations by a certain date, the class will be cancelled.

How and when do I pay for my classes?
Tuition is payble in full at time of registration or within five business days of registration by phone or fax without using a credit card. When registering online, a valid credit card (either MasterCard or Visa) is required. If you are mailing your registration to us, credit card, check, or money order are acceptable forms of payment. We can only accept cash if you are registering in person at our office. There will be a $30 fee plus all applicable sales tax from CheckSmart on ALL RETURNED CHECKS. For classes that may require additional fees, such as textbook or supply fees, students must pay these costs at time of registration, unless it is noted in the course description that fees are to be paid directly to instructor. In that case, student must be prepared to pay said fees at the time of the first class meeting.
What happens if a class is cancelled?
Classes cancelled by MISD Community Education will result in a full refund being issued. If you paid for your class by credit card, a credit will be issued back to the card used. If you paid by check, money order, or cash, a refund check will be issued. You should receive the check by mail within two business weeks.
What happens if I can't attend a class?
A full refund will be issued in the manner described above if we receive your cancellation notice at least two business days before the first class meeting, for classes with mutiple class days. If you are registered for a one-day class, we must receive your cancellation two business days before the class is held.
Will I receive a confirmation of registration?
As a general rule, we do not offer confirmation of registration. However, if you have given us a valid email address, you will receive an emailed confirmation notice automatically. When registering via our website, you will also receive a confirmation email automatically. You may feel free to give us a call or send us an email to ensure that your registration was received.
What happens if the class I want is already filled?
We will notify you that a class has been filled and your name will be placed on a waiting list. As, and when, openings occur, names will be added to the class list in order of placement on the waiting list.
Do I have to live in Mesquite to take classes?
No, you do not have to live in Mesquite to take our classes. Residents from surrounding communities are welcome to take any of our classes for the same tuition fees as Mesquite residents.
