CRI accepts most major credit cards and checks. We do not accept cash.

To ensure you get in to your preferred classes, it is recommended that you register early, as classes fill quickly.

You may be occasionally contacted by CRI Class Assistants Committee members to see if you are interested in helping with class.

Registration Information.

Classes offered by the Creative Retirement Institute are self-supported and receive no state funding. Students must pay a registration fee of $15 per person, per quarter, in addition to individual course fees.

Waitlisted for a Class?

If you want to register for a class that is already full, you can be added to the waitlist without being charged for the class.

If there is a cancellation, CRI will contact the next person on the waitlist to fill the opening.

If you are on the waitlist for a class and have not been contacted, please do not show up for the class.

Withdrawal and Refund Policy:

Edmonds College policy states that all students must be registered to attend class. Registration cannot be transferred to another individual.

Refund requests must be received at least two business days prior to the start of class, with a $10 drop fee for each refunded class.

Scholarships Available

Is there a class you'd like to take but don't feel you can squeeze the cost out of your budget? Through generous donations, the CRI John Terrey Scholarship Fund has been established to help increase the opportunity to experience the CRI classes. Funds will be awarded as money is available. The names of applicants will be strictly confidential.
