JCC Policies


Registration Policies
One of the benefits of membership to the JCC of Stamford is priority registration for classes and programs. Members of the JCC and the community can register online at stamfordjcc.org or in person at the front desk of the JCC. Registrations are accepted strictly on a first-come, first-served basis. Each individual may register for one family only.

Online registrations cannot be accepted for the JCC Sara Walker Nursery School, The JCC Preschool at Greenwich Reform Synagogue, KinderPlace, KidsPlace, and other child-care programs at the discretion of the JCC.

An online account is necessary to register online or to make payments to your JCC account. You can search for programs without an account but will be prompted to sign in or register for an account before accessing our cart feature. This is a quick and easy process.

You will be prompted to create a new account during your first program registration or transaction using the JCC’s online system. Please make note of the user name and password you select, to avoid creating duplicate accounts. You can access your existing account by clicking the “Sign in to your account” link found at the top, right-hand side of the screen in the registration system.

Refund/Cancellation Policy
The JCC reserves the right to cancel any program for any reason. Fees paid for cancelled programs will be refunded in full. In the event of withdrawal from a program, refunds for classes will be given according to the following schedule:
• 2 weeks or more prior to first class 100%
• 1 day or more prior to first class 50%
Requests for refunds must be made in writing to the head of the department of the program in question. No refunds will be given after the first class. There are no refunds given for special events or programs other than regular classes.

There is a $25 fee for returned checks.

For all JCC Programs
For your convenience, the JCC accepts cash, check, American Express, VISA and MasterCard. Online registrations and contributions require payment by credit card. If preferred, online information may be printed and registrations and donations may be completed by mail with a personal check. Please note that registrations are not complete and spots are not held until program fees or deposits are paid. Prior to processing registration for any JCC activity, accounts are reviewed for outstanding balances. Registration cannot be processed until past-due balances are reconciled.

Unless otherwise specified, fees for classes and programs should be paid in full at the time of registration.

If registering by mail, please enclose your completed registration form with payment.

If you wish to register in person or by phone:
• Registration forms are available at the front desk of the JCC.

Title VI Complaint Procedure
Any person who believes she or he has been discriminated against on the basis of race, color, or national origin by the Stamford Jewish Community Center may file a Title VI complaint by completing and submitting the Stamford Jewish Community Center Title VI Complaint Form. The Stamford Jewish Community Center investigates complaints received no more than 180 days after the alleged incident. The Stamford Jewish Community Center will process complaints that are complete.

Once the complaint is received, the Stamford Jewish Community Center will review it to determine if our office has jurisdiction. The complainant will receive an acknowledgement letter informing her/him whether the complaint will be investigated by our office. The Stamford Jewish Community Center will notify the Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Title VI Coordinator of any Title VI complaints filed, within 10 business days of receipt.

The Stamford Jewish Community Center has 60 days to investigate the complaint. If more information is needed to resolve the case, the Stamford Jewish Community Center may contact the complainant. The complainant has 10 business days from the date of the letter to send requested information to the investigator assigned to the case. If the investigator is not contacted by the complainant or does not receive the additional information within 10 business days, the Stamford Jewish Community Center can administratively close the case. A case can also be administratively closed if the complainant no longer wishes to pursue their case.

After the investigator reviews the complaint, she/he will issue one of two letters to the complainant: a closure letter or a letter of finding (LOF). A closure letter summarizes the allegations and states that there was not a Title VI violation and that the case will be closed. An LOF summarizes the allegations and the interviews regarding the alleged incident, and explains whether any disciplinary action, additional training of the staff member or any other action will occur. If the complainant wishes to appeal the decision, she/he has 30 days after the date of the letter or the LOF to do so.

A person may also file a complaint directly with the Connecticut Department of Transportation, Office of Contract Compliance, Attn: Title VI Coordinator, 2800 Berlin Turnpike, Newington, CT 06111; or directly with the Federal Transit Administration, at FTA Office of Civil Rights, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590.
