FAQS

What is the Montrose Area Adult School?

To find out more about the Montrose Area Adult School visit the Our Mission page.

How do I register for a class?

Class registration forms are included in the catalog or can be viewed and printed out here.

What time of year do classes meet?

The Montrose Adult School has both a Spring and Fall Semester. The Spring semester begins on or around April 1st and the Fall semester begins after Labor Day.  There are several  classes that start earlier and several that extend beyond the end of the typical semester so have your calendar nearby when you read through this catalogue.

Where and at what time do classes meet?

Montrose Area Adult School classes happen at many different times of day. Courses generally are scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 4:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m. and last 90 minutes but there are many exceptions. We feature Saturday workshops and a number of different out of town trips. Be sure to read through the information for the class you’re interested in carefully: including when and where the class takes place.

How much does it cost to take a class through the Montrose Area Adult School?

Students typically pay $5.00 for each course session unless it is an extended workshop; so if the course meets 4 times, the cost to a student is $20.00. Some courses require an additional fee for materials or items required for the course. As you would expect, trips and tours have additional costs associated with them that a standard class does not. Be sure to read through the information for the tour or trip you’re interested in carefully.

Are classes ever canceled for weather?

If the Montrose Area School District is closed, all Adult School classes will be canceled. You can check whether MASD is open at their website, www.masd.info.

Can a teenager enroll in a class?

These are classes for adults.  However, if you have a child or grandchild of high school age who is highly interested in a topic and wants to take a class with you, let us know and we will double-check with the instructor.

Are there scholarships or financial aid available?

We do have a scholarship fund if you would like help with tuition. Call us at (570) 278-3452 or email info@montroseadultschool.org for more information.

Can I suggest/teach a course?

If you have a suggestion for a new course or want to consider teaching one yourself, there is a course proposal form here. Course proposals for the Fall terms are due April 15 and courses for the spring terms are due by Nov 1.
