Register Early

To ensure your place in a class and to avoid cancellation due to insufficient enrollment, please register no later than two weeks before your course or workshop is scheduled to begin. Registration at least three weeks in advance is recommended.

Alumni Discount

We are pleased to offer our alumni 20% off registration for most noncredit workshops. This includes noncredit registration for a class that is also offered for credit. No discounts can be applied to registrations for degree-applicable or continuing education credit. Conferences are not eligible for this discount, and other events may be subject to exclusion—please see individual class or workshop web pages—eligible offerings will provide an alumni registration option.


Payment is due before the class/workshop starts. Tuition for credit-bearing registrations (graduate degree-applicable or continuing education credit) are due by that semester’s due date. We accept cash, checks, and major credit cards.


The Center for Community Engagement reserves the right to cancel any class that does not reach a minimum enrollment before or at the first class meeting. A full refund will be made for all classes canceled by Lewis & Clark. To cancel an enrollment, please email or call 503-768-6040. 

All cancellations must be received at least three business days prior to the first class meeting for a 90% refund (10% is retained due to processing fees). If a request is not received in that time period, no refund will be made. 

For credit-bearing classes, you are required to complete an official add/drop form. Ceasing to attend a class, whether or not you have notified the instructor does not relieve you of this responsibility. Participants who withdraw from a course after the second class meeting with be charged a prorated cancellation fee.

Continuing Education Units (CEU)

Continuing Education Units were established by a national task force of educational associations and are intended for use where employers, re-licensing agencies or others require a specified number of hours of study, and noncredit study is acceptable for fulfillment of those requirements. One CEU is awarded for each hour of contact participation.
