Registration Information

Registering for a School of Continuing Education program is quick and easy. Please see below for more information.

Course-by-Course Registration

As you browse through our program offerings, you will notice the “Register Now” button at the end of each course description. Clicking the “Register Now” button takes you to the registration form for the course. If you do not see the “Register Now” button, it either means there is no current session for that course or that the current session is full. Look for directions on whom to contact for information on future sessions, or for how to be added to a waiting list.

Registering Multiple People

A separate registration form must be completed for each registrant and each program. After entering the first registrant, click “Add Additional Registrant” button found on the order summary page to add an additional person. This process can be repeated to add all your registrants to the same program.
