Classes are occasionally available for $25 registration fee from the Folk School for local students (as defined below). The fine print:
Each person may only enroll in one of these classes within a 12 month period.
You must be "local." Read below in the Am I Local? section to see if you qualify.
Tuition is FREE, but each student will be required to pay a $25 registration fee and any additional materials costs. If there is space available and you choose to stay on campus, regular housing and meals rates apply.
These are available on a first-come first-serve basis and may not be used on a class for which you are already registered.
If you choose to register, you must do this by phone or in person - no online registrations, please. Call our Registration Staff (828-837-2775 or 800-365-5724) and be sure to mention Class Opportunities For Locals (Formerly Local Scholarships) to the person answering your call.
