Standby Tuition

Residents of Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Jackson, Macon, Swain counties, and Qualla Boundary in NC; Fannin, Gilmer, Rabun, Towns, and Union counties in GA; and Polk county in TN are eligible for 50% off for any full-tuition class on a space-available, standby basis. Students must present a valid driver’s license, voter registration card, or tax bill showing their local address.

All standby students must request “Local Standby” at the time of registration. The rate does not apply to the cost of class materials, housing or meals. Students will be confirmed 14 days prior to class start date.

Local student cancellation/transfer policy: A $25 fee will be charged for any change in registration for local students on standby for a class. Once confirmed for a class, the regular cancellation fee applies.
