Registration Policies


Classes and workshops are for adults 16 years-of-age or older unless otherwise indicated.


Registrations are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Registrations are not complete until payment is received.


Unless otherwise noted, the deadlines are one week prior to the start date of the workshop. Please sign up at least two weeks before the event to allow time for confirmation letters and parking permits to reach you and for course materials to be prepared.


Registrations are not complete and your spot is not guaranteed until your payment has been received by our office. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards in the form of Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.


Once your registration is complete, you will be mailed a confirmation letter, payment receipt, campus map, and parking permit.


The Office of Extended and Continuing Education is located on the third floor (Suite 301) of the Polytechnic Building, Southeast Missouri State University, Cape Girardeau. If you have questions about a workshop or your registration, call (573) 986-6879 or stop by our office.


To be eligible for CEUs and/or other credentials, participants are required to attend the entire course. If you are unable to attend a class, you may transfer to another class without penalty or send a substitute in your place after notifying our office by phone.


Any person with a disability needing accommodations should notify the Office of Extended and Continuing Education at the time of registration. The Office of Extended and Continuing Education is committed to providing all reasonable accommodations.


We offer discounts for senior citizens and Southeast Missouri State University employees, students, and alumni. The discounts are: - $5 off for courses priced under $75 per person or - $10 off courses that are priced at $75 per person and up. These discounts cannot be combined with other special offers, coupons, or discounted rates. Please let the Office of Extended and Continuing Education know at the time of registration if you are eligible to receive a discount.


The University holds the right to cancel classes at any time due to lack of enrollment, weather, etc. At least two business days prior to a class start date, a decision will be made as to whether or not there are enough participants registered to hold the course, or if it is to be cancelled/postponed. In such a case, participants are notified by telephone or e-mail with information about new schedules, refunds, etc.


Fully paid registrants may receive a refund minus a 10 percent administration fee (minimum of $10) if requested at least one week prior to the event. The University reserves the right to cancel any program. If the University cancels an event, paid registrants will be notified immediately and will receive a full refund. Registrants may opt, in lieu of a refund, to receive a credit on their account. Credits must be used within one year from the date of receipt.


All persons are welcome to participate. Southeast Missouri State University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, or status as a veteran. Inquiries concerning the application of these regulations should be directed to the University Affirmative Action Officer/Assistant to the President, Southeast Missouri State University, Academic Hall, One University Plaza, Cape Girardeau, MO 63701, (573) 651-2524.
