Registration procedures
There are no telephone registrations. To register for a continuing education class, complete a registration form and return it with payment-in-full by the registration deadline. Checks and money orders should be made payable to the Guilderland Central School District.

Please note: the online registration form is an interactive PDF, which means that you can click in each required field to type your personal information.

Completed forms along with payment should be mailed to:

Heather Kisby, Continuing Education
Guilderland High School
P.O. Box 18
Guilderland Center, NY 12085

Confirmation of classes
You will NOT receive confirmation of registration, and will only be notified if the selected course is canceled due to insufficient enrollment. In that case, you will receive notification by telephone and will receive a complete refund by mail.

Class times and locations
Most continuing education classes meet once a week, between 6 to 10 p.m., and last up to ten weeks. Classes are held at Guilderland High School. Exceptions, if any, will be noted in individual class descriptions.

Refund policy
Your continuing education program is a self-sustaining program with all expenses paid out of registration fees. It is necessary to cancel a class if enrollment does not support the cost of the course and checks will be returned. No refunds, therefore may be given after classes have started. If a registrant cancels prior to the start of the first class, a refund, less a $10 cancellation fee, will be given. No refunds will be given for one or two-night courses after registration closes. Please be advised that refunds can take three to four weeks. No school credit is given for any course.

Cancelled Classes
Whenever Guilderland district schools are closed for the day due to inclement weather, or for other emergency reasons, classes will not meet that night.

Should inclement weather occur during the day, announcements concerning the closing of the evening adult/continuing education program will be broadcast on over the following stations:

WGY - 810AM
WROW - 590 AM
WTRY - 98.3 FM

In addition, this information may also be found on the district web site and on Public Access Channel 16.

Senior citizens policy
All senior citizens who reside in the Guilderland Central School District and have reached the age of 60 will be permitted to enroll in most continuing education courses at a 50% discount. Senior citizens must check the senior citizens' "YES" box on the mail-in registration form and present their senior citizen card the first evening of class. Information regarding senior citizen cards may be obtained at the Guilderland Town Hall. Senior citizens may not displace any other residents of the district who may have enrolled in a course. Senior citizens will be required to pay the full registration fee if that fee is needed to maintain self-sufficiency. Courses followed by an asterisk in the course catalog cannot be offered as discounted courses.
