Commitment to all Carnegie Patrons, Friends, and Supporters during COVID-19:

The health of our students, writers, teachers, staff, and community is our priority during the pandemic. As things evolve, we will follow community health guidelines and notify you about updates to your classes, readings, tutoring, and events. Check back here for current information regarding in-person learning. Even better, sign up for our e-letter. • Our classes will go on, whether in-person or online. Please refer to the website listing for current information; class and event meeting formats may be different than what you see in the printed fall catalog. • If we can hold an event in person, we will stream the event, when possible, for those who would prefer to watch at home. • If your circumstances change and you need a refund, we will process that for you. • For current health and safety precautions, click here.
