COVID-19 Response Plan

The response to the threat of COVID-19 changes quickly. For the latest comprehensive information about the college’s current response plan please visit:




Advanced registration is required for in-person classes

Registration for classes generally closes one week prior to the class start date. It is critical to register by the registration due date so that we may order supplies, prepare facilities, and create the best possible experience for you. Class sizes require a minimum number of participants to run, by registering early (and enrolling a friend or two) you will ensure your class is not canceled due to lack of enrollment.

Avoid disappointment by registering early!

Register for all our programs by visiting https://www.cncc.edu/community-programming-registration 

Register over the phone by calling: (970)-824-1118 

Want to learn in your own space and on your own time? We now have new Education in a Box and Non-Credit Online options. Registration for these programs is always open. 


Refund Policy

Please read our refund policy for each class type (online or in-person) when you register. 

Once registered, it is your responsibility to pay for the class even if you do not attend.

Generally, no refunds are offered after the registration due date, because after that date the college has purchased supplies and issued contracts based on your enrollment. Exceptions will be made if you are ill. Please do not attend class if you feel unwell.  


Cancelations and Refunds

If we cancel a class or make a change that prevents you from attending, we will not charge your account and/or arrange for a full refund.

If you find that you cannot attend a class, we will do our best to accommodate you in another class of a similar nature within the same or the very next term. 

A refund is ONLY provided if the class is dropped due to a positive COVID-19 test result, or when dropped a week prior to start date.

Special Circumstances

If you miss a class due to COVID-19 or a suspected case of COVID-19, we will ask to see a doctor’s note (provided digitally). We will provide either credit for another class or refund depending on the specific circumstances. Please notify us early so that we might fill your space from our waitlist and to avoid fees and charges. If we cancel or change a class due to COVID-19 we will issue a credit towards another class, pro-rate your class or provide a full refund depending on the specific circumstances. 


Payment by check, cash, or credit card is appreciated when you register. We will bill your student account and send email notification for payment. Payment must be received before the end of each term, or your bill may be sent to a collection agency. 

Financial assistance is not currently available for our workforce and community programs. However, you may be eligible for assistance from your employer, the Colorado Workforce Center, and/or area human service providers.   


Customized Classes

Want the class at a different time or location? Interested in having a private class for yourself or a small group? Want to schedule team building or skill-building at work? Looking for something special?

Call us to communicate your needs and we will do our best to accommodate you.
