General Information for Participants

Registration for classes is required, unless otherwise noted. You may register online at or by calling (231) 893-2524 or visiting the ACWL-Nuveen. Please enroll in classes at least 48 hours before the scheduled class time.

No classroom spots are reserved without full payment or scholarship, unless otherwise noted. For the safety of children, they must be dropped off directly to their teacher in the classroom and remain with the teacher until picked up by parent or authorized adult. If a child is allowed to leave after class on their own, a note from the parent or guardian stating so is required before the first class. Programs offered are not licensed by the Department of Education or any state agency.

Cancellation & Withdrawal
Courses cancelled due to insufficient enrollment will be 100% refunded.  To receive a check refund, you must withdraw at least 7 business days prior to the first class session. The ACWL-Nuveen will retain a 10% processing fee. If you withdraw less then 7 days before the class you can receive credit for a future class-no money return will be given. If withdrawing the day classes begin, no refund or credit is available. 

If you signed up for a class that required registration by a certain date, you must cancel 3 days prior to the registration date to receive a refund. If you cancel on or up to 2 days before the registration deadline, you will receive credit for a future class. If you cancel after the registration date, no refund or credit is available. 

Make-Up Classes
If a class session is cancelled, a make-up class will be scheduled. Generally, make-up classes are held the week following the last scheduled class.
