Why does ASM ask for my contact information? ASM uses contact information to communicate class changes or cancellations. We DO NOT share this information with any other organization and value your private information as much as you do.
Is there a registration fee? Yes. A non refundable registration fee of $10.00 is charged once per person, per term.
Do I have to sign a waiver? Yes. The Board of Education is now requiring that all students attending ASM classes sign a waiver. This does not apply to online classes.
What if I do not want to sign a waiver? If you do not sign a waiver and have already registered, we will remove you from class.
Why won't the system allow me to register? If the class is full, there will be a solid red box visible. You may choose to put yourself on the waiting list at this point.

What if I am dissatisfied with my class? Please contact the office immediately and we will try our best to address your concerns!!
If I miss a class, can I make it up by attending another class or by making it up next semester? No, students may not make up absences by attending classes other than their own or by attending the same class the following semester.
What if weather is inclement or instructor must cancel? If the weather is inclement please go to the web site for updates on classes. If a class must be canceled for the evening due to weather or other issues, ASM will try to schedule a make-up class. ASM does not issue refunds for these classes.
