Course Cancellation Policy
In order for a course to run, a minimum number of registrants must be enrolled. The Department of Workforce Development and Continuing Education at Bronx Community College makes every effort to run scheduled courses. However, we reserve the right to cancel courses, make substitutions in faculty and change days, times and locations of classes if and when necessary. In the case of a canceled or postponed class, our staff will make every effort to contact registered students. If we are unable to contact you, we strongly suggest you call two business days before a class starts to confirm that it will meet as scheduled. We are not responsible for misprints in our literature or website. In the event of an error, we will make every effort to provide corrected information in a timely manner.
