While registrations may be accepted at the first class meeting, we do not recommend waiting because the decision to cancel or close a class is made several days in advance... and during our current quarter, we have closed many classes because they have reached capacity! If you show up expecting to register at the first class, you may be disappointed.

What if I see a class I'd like to take in the catalog, but it is not listed online--or vice-versa?

The printed version of our catalogue is prepared weeks in advance of the class start date, and there are times when situations prevail and the class can not take place, despite our efforts. If you do not see a class listed online, it will not be offered during the current term. Conversely, we do add classes throughout the term, so it's always best to check our website for updated course information.

What is your refund policy?

If you’ve registered for a class that you find you can’t attend, please send a written request at least one week prior to the class start date to communityed@tamdistrict.  If a refund is issued, a $12 processing fee will be deducted from your fee. Once a class has begun, refunds will not be issued for any reason. You can always avoid the processing fee by asking for a credit voucher rather than a refund. .org

Do you provide access for students with disabilities? 

In keeping with the guidelines of ADA, our program department makes every effort to make reasonable accommodation for those students with special needs. If you need assistance or have questions please call us at 415-945-3730.

How do I submit a class proposal?

We’re always looking for proposals from talented people. Click on the “teaching” link and “submit course proposal.” Thanks for your interest.
