Registration Dates & Fees
The registration/application fee is $50. We encourage prospective applicants to register for courses as early as possible to have time to submit the necessary documents before the course begins and to avoid losing a spot in a course that fills to capacity. That being said, if there is room in a course, students may enroll ‘last-minute’ if space is available and all documents are submitted. Some courses will have an insurance fee (HSPO), typically $20 and many courses have a $100 fee to cover material costs. This varies from course-to-course, the total is shown when you sign up for the course.
