Cancellation Policy

Cecil College reserves the right to cancel classes when there is insufficient enrollment. When classes are canceled, every effort will be made to contact you and 100% of your tuition and fees will be refunded by mail. The refund will take at least two (2) weeks to be processed. Decisions regarding class cancellations will be based on the number of registrations, so please register early!

Social Security Number and Birth Date

Your social security number and birth date are requested on our registration form for use as a student identification number to help us avoid duplicating records and mailings. It is for internal use only and remains confidential. Your birth date is required by the Maryland Higher Education Commission.

Please note: The college converts your social security number to a college ID number after your initial registration to help protect the confidentiality of your social security number.

Senior Citizen Tuition Waver

Residents of Maryland 60 years and older are exempt from tuition payment for some classes. At the time of registration seniors will be responsible for payment of course fees.

Registration Confirmation

We do not process registration confirmations. Please attend class on the date and time indicated in this course schedule unless you are otherwise notified.

Who Should Attend?

Unless otherwise designated, all continuing education courses are designed for persons 16 years of age or older. Registrants not meeting this requirement will not be accepted unless the course description clearly states that it is intended for a younger audience.

Special Accommodations

Requests for special accommodations should be made at least three weeks in advance of the class start date by calling the Student Advisor at (443) 674-1890.


Textbooks for courses are available at the Cecil College Bookstore located on the College's North East Campus on the first floor of the Technology Center. You may purchase texts at the Cecil College Bookstore or another bookstore of your choice. If the course description notes “Text book required,” check with the Bookstore by calling (410) 287-5436 for the name of the text. Textbooks will not be available from the instructor on the first night of class nor can they be purchased at Elkton Station. It will be your responsibility to purchase your text prior to the course to be ready for a successful learning experience.

Cecil College Bookstore Textbook Return Policy

  1. No refunds will be given without a receipt.
  2. Books must be absolutely free of all markings, either pencil or ink and in original packaging. Do not mark in or open your text until you are sure that it is the correct text for your course and you know that the class will be running.
  3. Defective books will be replaced at no charge.
  4. Textbooks for non-credit courses may be returned up to one week from the start date of the individual course.

Forms of Payment

Payments for registration may be made by cash, check, or money order (payable to Cecil College), VISA, MasterCard, or Discover (account number and expiration date). Post-dated checks are not accepted. If your check is returned from the bank, the College will not re-deposit your check and a $36.00 fee will be added to your account. A $36.00 fee will be added to your account if your credit card is denied or invalid. Payments for returned checks and fees must be submitted only in the form of cash, money order, or cashier’s check. Stop payment on a check does not officially withdraw you from a class.

The Payment Plan is a payment option that allows you to pay your total tuition and fees in 2, 3, or 4 month installments as determined by Cecil College’s Cashier’s Office. This option is only available if your tuition and fees total for certain courses more than $300.00 and the program length is greater than 3 months. There is a processing fee for this plan of $25.00, and it is due at the time of registration. All arrangements for this plan are handled through the Cashier’s Office and must be made the day you register or you will be responsible to pay the full balance of your account. If you have questions regarding this payment option, you may contact the Cecil College Information Center at (410) 287-1000.

Please note: Purchase orders may be used by a company or agency to begin the registration of an employee in a class. To use this method of payment please first contact your Business Training representative at

Non-Credit Transcript Information

Non-credit courses do not offer letter grades. Certificates of successful completion may be earned in courses that require successful demonstration of competencies and/or a skills assessment. Other courses offer letters that verify hours of attendance.

Non-credit transcripts are offered to students enrolled in many health care career and work-related training courses. Transcripts provide a history of non-credit courses completed and indicate the title of the course and grade designation received. Course descriptions designate the courses for which a transcript is available.

Transcripts must be requested in writing by the student and will only be released to a third party with written consent of the student. There is no charge for transcripts. Transcripts are issued by the Registration Offices located at the Elkton Station and North East campus.

Grade designations indicated on non-credit transcripts:

Grade Designation Interpretation
SC Successful completion of all course requirements and outcomes
ES Enrolled student, listening or audit student
PA Knowledge of course demonstrated by Proficiency Assessment
