Age Minimum / Guest Policies

Age Minumum Policy

You must be 18 years of age or older to take courses with ECE. 

  • Students are not allowed to bring guests under the age of 18 into any ECE classroom or location. Unaccompanied individuals under the age of 18 will be asked to leave.
  • ECE students must make appropriate childcare arrangements prior to enrolling in ECE courses.
  • Refunds will not be granted to students who are unable to continue with coursework due to child care issues.

The only exceptions to this policy are our PSAT and SAT Prep courses, which permit students under the age of 18.

Guest Policy

While students are welcome to have someone escort them into the building, guests are not allowed to wait either in the classroom or ECE’s lobby area/suite while the student is in class.

Class Cancellations

ECE is self-supporting. The registration fees cover costs associated with presenting noncredit courses. Therefore, courses with low enrollment may be canceled. Noncredit courses are for those 18 and older, unless otherwise indicated, and are not eligible for any university credit.


Classes that do not meet minimum student registration numbers are subject to cancellation.  Next sentence is from the catalog. If a course is canceled by Emory Continuing Education, the student may elect to transfer to the next offering of the course, apply the tuition to another course at ECE, or receive a full refund.

Student Conduct


ECE reserves the right, at its discretion, to cancel the registration of, and/or to decline subsequent registration to, a student who demonstrates inappropriate or unacceptable conduct in connection with a course, program, or activity of ECE or its staff or faculty.

Withdrawing from Courses


If you choose to withdraw from a course, the notification must be received in writing—via email or fax—before 5:00 PM Eastern time, no fewer than five days prior to the class start date. (Notification may be required earlier if noted in a course or program description that says materials that are ordered upon registration.) Once this notification is received, a full refund will be issued, minus a $25 processing fee. No refunds will be given after this period.
