Fees and Registration

Membership Fees

The annual fee covers the fall and spring terms, which covers the costs for classes and most campus events. For those who would like to participate in either the fall or the spring, there is a special semester only fee. Discounts are offered for alumni, as well as the second member living in the same household. These are listed on the registration form, which is contained in the course catalog.

For annual members already registered from the fall term, our membership now carries over to the spring term with no charges, other than those fees incurred for course materials and events where applicable.

Registration Process

Annual Members

For those who became annual members in fall 2012, you may register online. Online registration will begin after August 28, 2013, during our Open House. Some of the courses have limited seats, so register early! If, while you are registering online, you notice a message that says, "this class is full, click 'add to wait list' button below," this means that the maximum number of members has been reached in that course. If you click on the wait list button, that will allow you to be notified if an available seat for the course arises.

New Members

For those who were term members in the fall and are returning or for those who are new - you must register in person, or via the mail. Registrations will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis for all classes. Some of the courses have limited seats, so register early! Remember, those available seats are "first-come, first-served."
