You will receive a 100% refund if we cancel a course.

Less than five days prior to the start date you will receive 75% on account credit.

-- On account credits may be applied to any courses held at the School of Continuing Education at Montachusett Regional Vocational Technical School District.
On account credits are nontransferable to other students and will expire one year from issue date.
The refund/withdrawal policy does not apply to career, certificate or license courses.
The School of Continuing Education reserves the right to cancel classes with insufficient enrollment and to make instructor change or to change class schedules due to unforeseen circumstances. In the event of a class cancellation, SCE will make every effort to contact students via email or phone as soon as possible.
When day school is cancelled due to snow conditions or other weather or emergency events, evening classes are also cancelled. In the event day classes are not cancelled and the Montachusett area expects severe weather in the evening, a decision will be made by 3:00 PM. Please listen to the local television and radio stations for current cancellation notices. In addition, our office voicemail and website will reflect SCE cancellation.
Cancelled classes are made up (same day of week and time) by extending the finish date of the course unless other arrangements are made between the instructor and the class, and approved by the director.
First Day of Class
On the first night of class, participants should arrive ten minutes prior to the scheduled start time. All students should enter through the main entrance and check in with an SCE representative. Your instructor will meet you and bring you to your classroom. If you arrive late please come to the School of Continuing Education office located off the main lobby.
Books and Supplies
Students may be required to purchase a textbook (noted in the course description). The ISBN number for the text and a link to purchase is also noted in the description. If required, a cash only supply or material fee will be payable to the instructor the first night of class. Please remember to bring any supplies listed in the course description.
SCE offers Veterans and Montachusett Regional Vocation Technical High School Alumni a 15% discount and senior citizens a 10% discount. This discount does not apply to classes meeting less than 4 nights or to those designated specifically for senior citizens.
Veterans may use their GI Bill benefits to pay for several courses, such as Certified Nurse Aide, the Electrical Journeyman Program, and the Plumbing Apprenticeship Program. Please call for information.
