Questions and Answers How do I register?

We strive to keep registration simple by offering three easy ways to register for our programs: by mail, online, or in person. You may register using the form across this page to mail with a check or money order, or simply register & pay online for MasterCard, Visa or American Express. We would love to meet and register you in person, but keep in mind that cash payments need to be the exact amount of your total. Our instructors cannot accept money for registration fees. Course rates are subject to change without notice. Any additional cost to the course will be included in the course description. If the course involves physical activity such as the swim classes, a signed waiver of liability is required prior to the course.

Why should I register early?

We reserve the right to cancel courses due to low enrollment. Such decisions are made three business days prior to the class begin date. If a course is rescheduled for any reason, those registered will be contacted to verify availability for the rescheduled date. If a course is canceled due to low enrollment, registration fees are refunded in full.

Where do I park?

At the time of registration, you will be given a parking permit to hang on your rear-view mirror and instructed as to which parking lot is to be used for that particular course.

Do you accept the Hope Scholarship or Pell Grant funds?
