Application Process

The full payment for each class must be submitted with a completed application form. Payment is required to reserve a space in a class.

Once we receive your application and payment, we will send you written confirmation and provide more specific details about the logistics of the program. Please keep your confirmation letter and bring it with you on the first day of class. If you do not receive confirmation within 2 weeks of registration, call us to confirm that we have received your application and payment.

Along with your confirmation letter and logistics information, a liability release and medical form will be sent. These forms must be completed and received by our office prior to the class beginning. Participants will not be able to participate if we do not have these forms on file. We are not able to accept faxed copies of liability releases.

Make checks payable to Eckerd College. Credit Cards are accepted in person in the Waterfront Office.

Please arrive 15 minutes early on the first day of class so we can complete your registration process.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

No refunds or credits are issued if you cancel or change a class on or after the first day of the class, regardless of the reason.

Eckerd College reserves the right to cancel classes that have not met the minimum enrollment. If we cancel a class, your payment will be fully refunded.

Requests for full refunds due to injury or illness that occur prior to the beginning of a class must be accompanied by a physician’s written verification of date and type of injury or illness. This verification must be received no later than one week after the missed class.
