FAQs  

WHERE ARE THE LIFELONG LEARNING CLASSES HELD?
Half of our classes will be held online using Zoom. Our inperson classes are held at Central United Methodist Church (referred to as CUMC), located at 233 N. Church Street, Spartanburg. The church is between the Montgomery Building and Floyd’s Mortuary, a few doors south of the Spartanburg Marriott and Wofford’s campus. The location will be provided with the course information online and on your registration confirmation.
 
WHAT PRECAUTIONS ARE BEING MADE TO KEEP ME SAFE IF I CHOOSE TO TAKE AN IN-PERSON CLASS?
No classes being offered in person will have more than 12 people. They will be located in the larger rooms at Central United Methodist Church. Everyone will be required to wear a mask and instructors will teach behind a plexiglass screen. Students will be required to sanitize their hands before class and to wipe down their areas after class. There will be no coffee stations offered. All students will be asked to take a pledge to adhere to these and other protocols before taking class in person.
 
WHAT DO I NEED IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO TAKE AN ONLINE CLASS?
A computer or laptop which has speakers, a microphone and a video camera. If your laptop doesn't have a video camera, you can buy these inexpensively. You can also join a Zoom meeting without a camera. If your computer doesn't have speakers or a microphone, you might try plug in headphones which have an integrated microphone. A reliable internet connection and preferably a quiet room. Your instructor will send a link to the first class that you will access through your computer, laptop or phone to get connected. Practice sessions will be offered in August and September through email invitations.
 
CAN I GET A REFUND FOR A CLASS/MEMBERSHIP?
We will provide refunds only through the first week of class. If you would like to cancel a class or your membership before or within the first week of class, you may call the office and we can switch you to a new class or credit/refund your class/membership fee. After the first week, we will no longer provide refunds.
 
WHERE IS YOUR OFFICE LOCATED?
The Lifelong Learning office is located on the Wofford College campus and is part of the Mungo Exchange, located in the Michael S. Brown Village Center on Evins Street. Our office, 113, is located on the far right of the building as you face it from Evins Street.
