Frequently Asked Questions
Where is my class?
In general, computer classes and weekend classes take place on our Main Campus located at 68th St. and Lexington Avenue. Evening classes take place at our Campus School at 71 E. 94th St. Your registration receipt includes your official class schedule. This schedule confirms your registration, and indicates your course meeting days, times, and classroom location(s) if they have been assigned. Please carry this to your first class as proof of registration. If your classroom location has not yet been assigned, please visit our website to check your schedule, or call 212-772-4292 or 212-650-3850 (Mon–Fri, 9:00am–5:30pm) the day before classes start.
What if I have a question after business hours?
For help after 5:00pm, call 917 443-2908 Mon–Thu.
What are the policies and procedures for changing classes?
Circumstances sometimes necessitate a change to courses and schedules. For complete information concerning changes (including adding courses, withdrawals, and refunds), please check our website or call the office.
Note: Hunter reserves the right to cancel classes, change rooms, locations, alter times, dates, instructors and/or tuition without prior notification if necessary. We regret any inconvenience this may cause and will make every attempt to accommodate students.
Individual Class Cancellations & Make-Up Classes:
Occasionally, a class may be cancelled due to an unforeseen emergency or instructor's illness. Make-up classes are scheduled by the instructor.
What if I take the first class and do not want to continue?
There are no refunds once the course has begun.
How long does it take to process a refund?
Credit card refunds are credited back to the card used to register for the course 3-5 business days. Check/money order registrations will be refunded via a check mailed 4-6 weeks after cancelled registration.
Where do I find Weather and Emergency Information?
Because of its central location and easy access to public transportation, Hunter College can generally operate without incident when there is inclement weather. However, should severe weather occur, the College will monitor conditions and will seek direction from the CUNY Central Administration to determine if it is necessary to cancel classes or close the school.
For up-to-date information about emergency closings listen to 1010 WINS or WCBS 88. Continuing Education at Hunter College cancels for weather related emergencies only if Hunter is closed.
Note: The Hunter College Campus Schools are closed when the New York City Public School system is closed for an emergency. You can visit this website for up-to-date information about classes, cancellations, or emergency closings.
