2) Can I get grades or college credits for an Extension class?

No, Pierce Extension is the not-for-credit program of Pierce College.  Our program is fee-based, and user-supported and our classes are not requirements or prerequisites of the traditional Pierce College credit program.  There are no grades or transcripts and college credits cannot be granted.

4) Can I register on the first day of class?

Yes, as long as space is available.  However, we strongly encourage you to register in advance.  Many of our classes are very popular and fill up quickly, so we suggest you register as early as possible once you know your availability.  Also, if you wait until the day of class you run the risk of finding out that the class you wanted may have been cancelled due to low enrollment.  Registering in advance also saves you time.  Online registration closes three days before a class begins, so you will need to phone, fax or walk in last-minute registrations.  If you are registering the day of class, please allow 30 minutes for walk-in registration.  Please note that our office is not opened on Saturdays or Sundays, so please register for weekend classes by the Friday prior.

Student Profile:
If you are registering as an individual, and won't be registering for anyone else in the future.
Household Profile:
If you are signing your children up for classes, or if you are registering yourself and other family members (adults or children) in classes.  A good rule of thumb is: If you may one day wish to register another family member for classes, create a Household Profile.

Note: When signing your children up for classes, create the Household profile with your name and contact information first, then add your children by clicking "add youth member to household" then entering their information.
