Community Education FAQs

When can I sign up?

If space is still available in a class, registrations are taken until one business day before the first day of class. Many classes fill up much sooner, so we encourage you to sign up early.

When do I pay my registration fee?

Payment must be received in order to complete the registration process. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration and payment are necessary to guarantee class placement.

Where do classes meet?

Classes meet on both Northark campuses in Harrison. Designated classes meet at our Carroll County Center in Berryville. The specific campus and room number will be included on your registration confirmation. If you need directions or class locations, just call us at 870-391-3159.

Where is your office located and when is your office open?

The Continuing & Community Education Department office is located on Northark’s South Campus M124, 1515 Pioneer Drive in Harrison. Our office hours are 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Monday-Friday.

How do I drop a class?

At least one day before the class begins, just give us a call at 870-391-3159.

What is Northark’s Refund Policy for Community Education Classes?

Withdrawal before the first class - 100%, withdrawal before the second class - 70%, none thereafter. Fees for one-day classes are refundable if notification of withdrawal is prior to date of class.

I forgot to drop my class; won’t my instructor do that for me?

Students are responsible for dropping or withdrawing from classes even if they do not attend. When students don’t attend or stop attending without formally withdrawing, they will be held liable for all charges on their accounts.

My class was cancelled after I registered; what happened?

Sometimes classes are canceled due to factors such as insufficient enrollment, personnel availability and budget requirements. We regret any inconvenience this might cause and will do our best to help you adjust your schedule. Be sure and check your courses before the start date.

New Classes

Additional classes are organized on demand if qualified instructors and facilities are available. Anyone interested in offerings not scheduled is encouraged to contact the Continuing & Community Education Department at 870-391-3159.
