The New York City Center for Media Education (CME) is MNN’s official learning hub. CME is proud to be the largest community media educator in the City of New York. We blend a community focus with professional development and training to give independent creatives the confidence and tools to become successful.The best way to learn about getting involved is to attend one of our monthly Info Sessions at either MNN’s West 38th Street or the East 104th Street location. You can find and register for an upcoming info session here at cme.mnn.org.
Students may register for workshops online up until 2 hours before the workshop begins. If you need assistance with registration, please email us for support. Students must be 18+ to register for workshops. Please contact us directly to inquire about private youth group training. Only the enrolled participant is permitted to attend class. Bringing unapproved guests to class may result in not being admitted to class .
CME does not offer refunds for class enrollment. Students may transfer their registration to another class of equal or lesser value no less than 48 hours before the class is scheduled to begin. There are no transfer options for no-shows.
If a course fails to meet the minimum enrollment requirement, it is subject to cancellation. CME will make every effort to notify enrolled participants of the cancellation – usually within 48 hours – of the start of the class. In instances when CME must cancel a class, students will be offered the opportunity to enroll in another cycle of the same class or offered a refund.
Classes may be canceled due to inclement weather. CME will make every effort to notify students of weather-related closures, which will also be posted online. CME recommends that students monitor our facility website and social media pages during inclement weather.
Attendance to all class sessions is strongly encouraged to get the most out of the class. There are no make-up opportunities for missed sessions.
