What is the difference between the free English for Work classes and the low-cost PACE classes? 

Both classes are online, but they have a different focus.

PACE is our academic program. It helps students improve their everyday English, and advanced students focus on skills that prepare them for community college, trade school, and university. Students work independently or in small groups on weekly projects. They have several online meetings with their teacher and classmates to practice the language skills they need to complete each project.

I would like to know about the payment because I already did it. When I applied for it it was $184.00. So, why do I have to pay more for online classes?

The cost for courses is determined by the amount of course content.  For this term our courses will have 43 hours of learning content. This will be a mix of online learning and classroom time with video conferences.  

And I would like to know how long the classes will be. Will it be 2 hours like a previous class?

These courses will be a mix of online learning and time with teachers through video conferences.  There will be the same amount of course content as in previous courses but it will be in a different form.  The teachers will provide a mix of video conference classes, office hours, and online learning materials.

Are payment plans available?

We can offer them through the first day of classes for this term given the unique circumstances. 

How can I get a refund?

 You can email the treasury department: treasury@emilygriffith.edu.
