Class Policy Note: BMCA does not hold spaces in classes without full payment. Students may fill out the registration form to be added to a roster as an “Interested Student” without paying, but may lose their place to a paying student at any time when a course reaches its maximum number of students. 1 week before a course starts, BMCA notifies instructors of whether their courses have met minimum enrollment. Therefore, interested students’ names will be removed from the roster at that time without further notice.
