Avoid the frustration of a canceled class and sign up early!
Most classes are required to have 10-15 fully-paid students enrolled a week before the class starts to allow the class to run. If your class is cancelled, you will receive a refund in the mail. We will attempt to contact all affected students in the case of a cancelled class.
Important: When you register for a course at COS, you will be given a COS student email address. This is how the campus will communicate with you regarding changes to your class, cancellations and other information. Be sure you know how to access this email account and read it regularly or have it forwarded to an email address you do read regularly. More information can be found on the Student Email page.
