How to Drop a Class

You may submit a request to drop a class online by logging in to your Saturday High account. You may also submit a written request to drop a class. To do this, pick up and complete a Change of Program form at the Saturday High office, or fax a signed note to 626.396.4219. It is your responsibility to follow up by calling 626.396.2319 to confirm that your fax was received and that it is legible. Failure to drop a class officially can result in a grade of F for that class.

Written or faxed requests to drop any or all classes must include the following:

  • Your full name
  • Your student ID and address
  • Name of the class(es) you wish to drop
  • A brief description of why you are dropping your class(es)
  • The date of your request
  • Your signature

Refund Policy

For 10-week classes: A full refund will be given to students who drop a class before the first class meeting. An 80% tuition refund will be given to students who drop a class within the first 14 days of the term. After that, no refunds will be issued for dropped classes.

For summer workshops: A full refund will be given to students who drop a class before the first class meeting. After that, no refunds will be issued for dropped classes.

For four-week Summer Intensives: A full refund will be given to students who drop a class before June 10. A 50% tuition refund will be given to students who drop a class between June 10—July 6. No refunds will be issued after the first class meeting.

Class Changes and Cancellations

Art Center reserves the right to cancel any class, limit class size, change times or substitute instructors for those listed in the class schedule as it deems necessary. Class cancellations will not be announced until the end of the registration period. You will receive a full refund if the College must cancel a class for which you have registered.

Attendance

You are urged to attend as many classes as possible. If you cannot make it to class, speak with your instructor in advance, if possible. Sorry, but the Saturday High office can not take messages for faculty members.

Grading

Saturday High is a noncredit program, but a grade is awarded at the conclusion of the term. At the end of the term, grades will be posted on the Saturday High website. To access your grades, log in to your account and select — .

Transcripts

Art Center Library

Currently enrolled Saturday High students have access to Art Center's library and borrowing privileges for up to three books during the term. Students are responsible for returning borrowed books in good condition and on time. If a Saturday High borrower has late items, borrowing privileges are suspended until the late items are returned and corresponding fines are paid.

To check out books, Saturday High students must present a Library Permission Slip signed by the student's parent or guardian.

Please note: The Art Center library is an art and design library, containing materials that may be inappropriate for teens. Please note that the library does not have filtering software on its computers. The entire collection, including Internet access, is open to all patrons. Library staff is not responsible for an individual's selection of materials. Parents and legal guardians have the right and responsibility to restrict their children's access to library materials. Parents and legal guardians should instruct their children on appropriate limits, and visit the library with their children if they are concerned about access.
