  • Course and Refund Update

    Students currently enrolled in classes will have the option to continue taking courses once permission has been granted to reopen schools.  Once classes resume, students will pick up where they left off.  If you prefer a refund, the amount is pro-rated based on the number of classes taken.  However, students who registered for a class that didn't start are entitled to a full refund.

  • Latest Update regarding Practical Nursing Program

    Southern Westchester BOCES has been assessing the Adult Practical Nursing Program over a period of years.  A decline in enrollment over time has made operation of the program increasingly cost prohibitive.  Continuing to deliver this intensive healthcare training program at this time is not a viable option.  We have made the very difficult decision to not offer a program start up for the 2020-2021 school year.  Part-time students, who entered the program in August of 2019, will continue in their evening studies and complete at the conclusion of the coming school year.

    We strive to provide the best services.  We will be working with professional and experienced staff and our community partners to discuss the best next steps.  Training in the healthcare professions, now more than ever, is critical and will be part of our future in the Center for Adult and Community Services.  Our goal is to provide the opportunity to create healthcare training programs that are fiscally responsible and meet the ever changing needs of the healthcare field.  

    If you have applied and paid the application fee, you will receive a refund.  If you were currently enrolled in the Practical Nursing Preparation Program, you will receive a refund.  Please allow up to six weeks for your refund.  If you do not receive your refund by June 20, 2020, please contact us at adulted@swboces.org.
