If paying by credit card, click on the “Enroll Now Here” link underneath your preferred program date/format. From there, you will click the purple “Enroll Yourself” button to create an account. **Please note that creating an account and saving the program to your shopping cart will not save a spot for you in the course.

If paying by check, please complete the registration form and postal-mail it along with your check to the address printed on the registration form.
