What is Extended Education?
Extended Education includes courses and classes outside of the degree-seeking education system that anyone can take (depending on the class eligibility requirements) in order to learn new skills or refresh current skills. These classes provide skills training, certificates, and industry certification and are ideal for entry-level training, career changes, professional skills advancement, and credential updates.
 
How do I register and pay for a class?
Browse through our course offerings and when you see something you like, click "add to cart". It's that easy! You will be prompted to create a profile and then you can checkout using a credit card. Multiple classes can be added to your cart and registered for at the same time, so take your time and really look around. 
 
What is the withdrawal and refund policy?

Series Summer Arts School
Requests received more than 2 weeks prior to the workshop start date are eligible for a full refund, less a $50 administration fee. If RDP cancels a workshop, or if you withdraw for medical reasons, you will receive a full refund for your workshop fees. If you need to withdraw from a workshop less than two weeks before the start date, you are not eligible for a refund.

I’ve already registered, but something came up. How do I transfer to another class?
You've got a busy schedule, we get it! Students are permitted to have one transfer between courses free of charge. Any additional transfer requests will be subject to a $50 + GST administration fee. To transfer classes, please contact us at (403) 356-4900 or extended.ed@rdpolytech.ca.

What information is required to complete my profile?
Extended Education wants to ensure that your records are accurate. In order to do so, it is necessary to require specific identifying information to match your educational records to you. This information includes name, date of birth, email address, personal mailing address, and phone number. This information is not shared with outside entities and will not be used for anything other than record identification.

What is a Household Profile?
Household profiles are recommended for families with youth registration needs. Follow the steps to create a primary household member profile. Once Steps 1-3 are complete, you will have the ability to Add Adult member(s), Youth member(s) or Edit emergency contact information. When selecting ‘Add to Cart’ on a class, you will be prompted to choose a household member to register. All registrations and transactions are housed under the same profile. If you need to remove and create a separate account for a member, you can do so by selecting the button and action Remove next to the member name. Follow steps to complete an individual learner profile.
 
How do I print a receipt?
To print a receipt, sign in and select "My Transactions" from the menu bar on the left side of the screen and locate the class. Under "Action", select "Print View" and print your receipt.

How do I print a transcript? 
To print a current, unofficial transcript of classes, sign in and select "My Transcript" from the menu bar on the left side of the screen. In the upper left corner select “Print View” to print your transcript. Please note that this is an unofficial transcript. To obtain an official transcript, please contact us at 403.356.4900. *For classes taken prior to September 2019, please contact us. 
 
Can I register for a class that is full?
All classes have a maximum class size that must be adhered to. If you wish to be considered for registration in a class that is currently full, you can request to be added to a waiting list by signing in online and clicking “Add to the Waiting List” link for the class that is full. If an opening becomes available, you will be notified to finalize your registration. Placing your name on a waiting list does not guarantee a spot in the class.
