Class schedule changes

Dates, times and instructors of classes are subject to change. In the event a change to the class schedule needs to be made, you will be notified via email and/or by phone

Wait Lists

If a class is filled at time of registration, navigate to the Crafts Center Waiting List to add your name to be contacted.

Should a class space become available, NC State students are given priority and are contacted first.  Then the space is offered to all others on the list in the order as appearing on the list.

If a last-minute cancellation occurs, then everyone on the list is contacted at the same time; the first person to respond who will commit to attending the class will secure the space.


In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, NC State will honor requests for reasonable accommodations made by individuals with disabilities. Requests can be served more effectively if notice is provided at least 10 days before the event. Direct accommodation requests via e-mail to Crafts Center Director Carol Fountain Nix.
