  If you want KCC to bill a third party for your course, submit a letter of authoriza-
  tion, along with your registration form, to Lifelong Learning. Please submit at least
  five working days before the event. The letter must be signed by the third party and
  include your name and social security number. The College will then bill the third
  party directly. Authorization to bill must be unconditional, not contingent on a
  student’s successful completion of the course. The student will be responsible for
  amounts unpaid by the sponsor. Call (269) 965-4134 if you’d like us to send you a
  sample letter of authorization.

                                                        REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Register early for a full selection of courses. Each term we cancel courses because of low
enrollment, only to find out the day of the course that several of you intended to come.
Please help us by registering at least one week before the class start-date so we won’t disap-
point you. Registrations will not be processed for students with fines on their accounts.
Fines must be paid prior to registering. Late registration will be accepted through the first
class meeting, if space is available. Enrollments are accepted on a first-come, first-served
basis; however, we will add you to our waiting list if the class is full.

If your course must be canceled, we will attempt to notify you before the first class. In this
event, you will be entitled to a full refund or, if you wish, you may apply the registration fee
to another course. Please ensure that KCC has your current phone number by including
it on your registration form.

If requested at least two days prior to the start date, a full refund is given for any dropped
course, seminar, or workshop. A partial refund is given for any course dropped through
1/10 of the total number of instructional hours. At this time a $5 fee is nonrefundable. All
requests for refunds should be directed to Lifelong Learning at (269) 965-4134.
