No. Credit card information for waitlist classes is stored as a part of your registration, but your card will not be charged until you are confirmed into the class. Once a space opens up, your card will be charged, and if you have supplied an email address, you will receive an email confirmation of your status in the class.

You can view the Course Catalog without logging in, however, you will have to be logged to register for a class. Once logged in, you may complete as many registrations as you’d like without logging in again.
11. I’m concerned about submitting a Credit Card over the Internet. How do I know your site is secure?
We use the latest Department of Defense SSL technology to ensure that all personal information you submit is encrypted and cannot be read by anyone other than you and authorized BTSS staff.
12. I’ve tried to register for a class, but get an error message that my credit card cannot be processed, even though I know it’s a valid account. Why is this?
There are many security features that are put in place when processing credit cards through the Internet. If you get an error message, please check the following:
Review the credit card number and expiration date you’ve entered to be sure they are an exact match to your card.
One of the security measures in place ensures that all the identifying information you’ve submitted to the Bloomfield Township Senior Services matches the identifying information your credit card company has on file for you. If name, address, city, and/or zip code do not match, you will receive a message that your credit card cannot be processed, and subsequently, your registration will not be processed. Review your Account Profile, update any necessary changes, and submit your registration again.
Be sure the type of credit card you are entering is a type accepted by our office. American Express/Visa, MasterCard and Discover are the only cards currently accepted.
If your Account Profile includes an email address, be sure you have entered a complete email with the ‘@’ symbol, and ending in ‘.com’, ‘.net’, etc.
