Registration Deadline

The deadline for registration is the first day of classes, space permitting. Courses fill quickly, so be sure to register early and include a second choice on the registration form if applicable.

Registration & Space Availability

We accept registration online, by fax, by mail, by telephone or in person. Note: Online registration is NOT available for scholarship applicants. To register, you must submit a completed registration form with payment in full. Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. We do not maintain a waiting list for our classes.

Changing Courses

Requests for a change/switch of course will be processed until the first day of the semester. Requests to change/switch courses submitted after the first day of the semester will be considered as a request to withdraw, subject to the Saturday Arts Lab refund policy. It is not our policy to transfer registration from one semester to another.

Course Cancellation

The University of the Arts reserves the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment. If a cancellation should occur, students will be notified prior to the start of the class and will have the option of taking another course of receiving a full refund.

Admission & Dismissal Policies

The University of the Arts reserves the right to deny registration to any student based upon the student's prior behavior or actions in a previous class, program or workshop at the University.

Additionally, any current student may be dismissed from his/her class and the program if found to be disruptive, behaving inappropriately in class or on the University campus, or are picked up late from class two times during the semester. Students dismissed from any UArts Pre-College program will be denied admission to future terms and programs.

Students in the Division of Continuing Studies are expected to adhere to a Student Code of Conduct available on this website.

Snow Days

While we make every effort to run all scheduled classes and events, it is sometimes necessary to cancel classes due to emergencies or severe weather.  To find out if Pre-College Saturday classes have been canceled due to emergency, snow or other inclement weather:

  • Check the UArts main page for an alert
  • Check the Pre-College page for an alert
  • Call the UArts weather hotline at 215-717-6996 and listen to the recorded message.  There will be a recorded message after 8:30 am on Saturdays only if there is a cancellation. No refunds or make-up classes will be scheduled as a result of a cancellation.

When the campus is closed, all on-campus events (including Pre-College classes) are canceled.
