As a courtesy to the instructors and fellow members, please select your courses with the intention of attending all sessions. Absentee registered students result in underutilized classroom space and missed opportunities for members on the wait list.
Dropping a Course
If you need to drop a course before it begins, please notify the CWA office so they may contact the first person on the wait list to fill the available seat.
A few weeks before courses start, any course that is not fully subscribed can be added to a Regular member’s registration for enrollment on a first come, first served basis until the course is filled. There is no additional charge and the 15-unit registration limit no longer applies as of the open enrollment date. Once available, you can obtain a list of closed courses on the website. Open enrollment is accepted by phone (757-221-1506) or by email: [[ChrisWren]] . Please note you must be registered for all courses you attend.
Refunds will not be given after the first day of the start of the semester. If you need a refund before that date, please contact the office.
Online registrants will receive their name tag by email approximately one week before courses begin. Mail registrants will be mailed a confirmation of their course(s) and a name tag. Plastic name tag holders will be available on the first day of your course. Please wear your name tag for admission to courses and other CWA events.
Christopher Wren courses and activities are intended for Christopher Wren members. A member's guest may attend a course or an activity once as long as the course is not fully subscribed. Local guests must be considering joining Christopher Wren. The CWA office must be informed prior to any guest attending.
Christopher Wren will cancel courses/activities/events for weather if the Williamsburg/James City County (WJCC) public schools are closed. If WJCC Schools are delayed, CWA will continue as scheduled. A notice will be on the CWA office voice mail (757-221-1506). You will be contacted if courses are cancelled for any other reason.
