Session IV Courses

Dear ALFA students,

You are no doubt aware that institutions of higher education across the country are working hard to respond to the national spread of the coronavirus and to take all possible precautions to protect the safety of their students, faculty, and staff.

Because of the health risks the coronavirus poses to older adults and the CDC’s recommendation that older adults limit their social interactions and avoid crowds, the university has decided to cancel ALFA courses, lectures, and trips for the remainder of the spring semester. We regret the disruption to plans and activities this will cause. We hope to bring back our ALFA classes as soon as health and safety risks permit.

Because we recognize that you are not receiving the full course of instruction for which you paid, we will provide you with a full refund. If you paid by credit or debit card, we will issue the refund electronically. If you paid by electronic check, we will reissue a check and mail it to your home address. Please be patient with us, as this is a large volume of refunds to process.

Thank you for being part of our community. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at
