Policy on Students Under 18 Non Credit

Catalog and Student Handbook

The Center for Workforce & Community Education occasionally receives requests to enroll in noncredit classes from potential students who are less than 18 years of age or from their parents. These individuals may enroll in noncredit classes at Germanna Community College provided both the parent or guardian and the student sign a letter indicating they both understand and acknowledge:

  • The student will be in a class intended for adults.
  • Any behavior that is not that of a responsible adult may result in the student being asked to leave the class and the campus.
  • Full payment of tuition and any fees must be made at the time of registration.

The Center for Workforce & Community Education retains the option of denying enrollment to students younger than 18 in courses the College deems potentially hazardous, unsafe, or otherwise inappropriate for minors. Minors are not eligible to enroll in noncredit classes that are also offered as credit classes. Motorcycle safety classes are open to students who hold either a valid learner’s driving permit or a valid driver’s license. Workforce health care classes may have specific sets of application and admission processes.
