• Eligibility
    Classes are open to all adults 18 years of age or older who can profit from the instruction. There is no additional tuition fee for out-of-district students. Students 18 and older interested in taking courses for a high school diploma or in order to pass the GED must obtain transcripts of previous high school work and make an appointment prior to registering. 


    Students may register online or by downloading the registration form from this website and bringing or mailing it to: 1963 Tice Valley Blvd., Walnut Creek, CA 94595 or faxing it to: 925-280-3981. Fees must accompany the registration form and may be paid by cash, check or Visa/Mastercard or Discover. For a few classes, registration is through a partnering organization. Visa/Mastercard credit cards may not be accepted for these classes. These are noted in the schedule. Students are contacted only when the class for which they register is full or cancelled. It is wise to preregister for all classes. After the class has started, students may enroll in a class with the teacher’s permission if space is available. No prorated fee is given for late registration.

    Class Fees

    Class fees are determined by several factors including the length of the class. Fees are set based on an expected minimum enrollment for the class.  Classes may be cancelled, class hours reduced or fees increased when the minimum enrollment is not obtained. No discount is given for classes missed for any reason. There is a $25 service charge for any returned check.
    Refund Policy
    Refund requests incur a $25 service charge.  All requests for refunds must be made in writing (email accepted). Class fees will NOT be refunded for any reason if written request is more than three business days after the start of class. If a class is cancelled by AAE for any reason, a full refund will be made.
