Frequently Asked Questions
A: For most of our courses, there is open enrollment. That means you simply choose which course you want, register and pay for the class. You can register online, over the phone at 972-985-3711 or at any Collin College campus.
A: A minimum enrollment is required to cover the costs of providing a course. If the minimum is not met, the class may have to be cancelled. The decision to cancel a class is typically made two business days before the start date. If a course is cancelled due to low enrollment, the students who are registered for the course will be notified by email and/or telephone. Those students will have an option to receive a full refund or to transfer to another course. Accurate telephone numbers and email addresses are needed to ensure that the college can reach students in case of a course cancellation.
