Instructional Clinics

Clinics are offered each semester for a small fee and include a learning progression throughout the semester. Participants must register at the service counter in the Student Recreation Center (SRC) lobby prior to participating in any clinic after the first week of classes.

How to Register
Currently enrolled students may register and participate in clinics. Members who are 18 years and older may also register and participate in clinics. Guests and nonmembers are not permitted to register or participate in clinics. Register for clinics at the service counter in the Student Recreation Center (SRC) lobby only during the registration period. Once registration closes at the posted deadline, no late registrations will be accepted for any reason.

One clinic registration is good for the specific day and time that is listed on the schedule. If a clinic is offered more than once per week, a separate, additional registration is required.  Price listed per clinic is for the entire semester of classes, not cost per week.

Clinics that have not met the minimum enrollment requirements as of September 14 will be canceled and refunds or transfers will be issued. Participants will be notified via email for any class changes or cancellations.

Refunds
A refund will be given if the participant cancels by closing on September 14. If you would like to receive a refund for your clinic, please contact Larissa Brown.

Clinic Transfers
Pending available space, participants may transfer to another Instructional Clinic by contacting Larissa Brown before September 14.
