How do I register for a class?

It's easy to apply for a class:

1 - Browse class descriptions by either date, subject, instructor, or one of our special weeks. Choose a class by clicking the "Add this class" button from the desired class description page. Add as many classes as you'd like for yourself and/or companion(s).

2 - Click the "Finish Registration" button in the Class Registration box in the top left corner of your screen to proceed with your registration application.

3 - The first time you apply to register for a class, you'll be prompted to create an account, including a username and password. For any subsequent registration applications, just enter your username and password and, under Provide Student Information, you'll see that your contact information automatically loads for you. You can also create different profiles for multiple students in your party. (And all information can be updated at any time, as needed.)

4 - Then, just follow the prompts and click the "FINISH" button. That's it! You will receive an email confirming that we've received your online registration request. Once you're enrolled in a class, we'll mail you a confirmation letter which will include a billing statement, class materials list and additional information concerning your stay at the Folk School.
