Fall 2023 Registration is Closed.

CVEC Covid Policy for Fall Term: CVEC continues to require Covid vaccinations and boosters for all persons attending in-person classes. However, at this time CVEC does not require that masks be worn by students or instructors, and none of our class venues is requiring masks. Therefore, we anticipate that there will be no masking requirements for Fall 2023.

Of course, any student is welcome to wear a mask at any time or at all times. However, if any student should request that all other students in a class wear masks, there is no expectation that those other students will comply with that request. In classroom settings, it’s difficult to hear people speaking when they wear masks. Therefore, people who would prefer that the entire class wear masks are advised to consider one of our Zoom classes.

To register with paper form

Registrations can be mailed to CVEC, PO Box 861, Faribault, MN 55021. Include course fee (tuition and, in some cases, fees for materials), payable to CVEC, or check the financial assistance box. Books, other materials, and travel, when specified for a class, are extra.

To register with online form

The online registration form (link above) can be used for individual students who are not seeking financial assistance. If you wish to register as a couple or request financial assistance, please complete the paper form.

The registration process

The Initial registration period extends from July 31st through August 21st. Registrations after then will be accepted on a space-available basis.

Registrations can be submitted on paper and mailed or processed online, following the instructions above.

All registrations received during this formal registration period by 6:00 pm on August 21st will be treated as arriving at the same time. Random selection will be used to fill any oversubscribed courses. After August 21st, class availability and enrollment numbers will be updated periodically at cvec.org and posted at FiftyNorth. Confirmation of registration will be sent by email or post card no later August 25th.

If your course is oversubscribed, you will be notified by August 22nd via email or phone call. If you register by 6:00 pm on August 21st and are not admitted to an oversubscribed course, you may register for another course or receive a refund. When one or more courses are oversubscribed, students are normally admitted to each in the following order (using random selection when necessary):

(1) all students who registered for a previous offering of the same course but were not then admitted by random selection;

(2) students registering for their first CVEC course, as long as they fill less than half of the places in that course;

(3) other registrants, except that normally no student will be admitted to more than one oversubscribed course.
