If you don't see a highlighted link for a class, or if a link takes you to a page without a REGISTER button and with a message saying Registration is closed, it means registration for that class has not yet opened. Check the opening dates listed at the top of the schedule page, and try again later.
If the link takes you a page with a JOIN WAITLIST button (instead of a REGISTER button), it means the class is full. We do sometimes get cancellations, so click JOIN WAITLIST if you want to be notified of any last-minute openings. The waitlist request pertains only to the current class; it will not carry over to a future class. Do not send payment for a position on the waitlist.
The first time you register for a class, the system will create an account for you with your e-mail address serving as your username. The account serves only to store your contact information (we do not collect any financial information). You will have to jump through a few familiar hoops when the account is first created (prove you are not a robot, agree to a Terms & Conditions page), and the system will assign you a password. From then on, whenever you register for a class you will log in using that same e-mail address and password.
Need to change the e-mail address or other contact info we have on file for you? Log in to your account (the Help page explains how), click the View profile link, then click Edit profile.(back to top)
Confirmations, invoices, and other announcements about your registration will be e-mailed to the address you provide.
Text-message notifications not available.
To ensure that our e-mails reach your inbox, not your spam folder, please:
Double-check that you have given us your correct e-mail address. Type carefully!
Add these addresses to your whitelist/approved-senders list:
SOTCRegistrar@gmail.com (for personal communications with the Registrar)
firstname.lastname@example.org (source of automated messages sent by the system)
Payment may be done either on-line (by credit card) or off-line (by check/money order sent through U.S. mail).
To pay by credit card, select the PAY ONLINE option once you get to the Review and confirm page. Credit card payments are processed through PayPal (you do not need to have a PayPal account).
To pay by check/money order, select the INVOICE ME option once you get to the Review and confirm page. An invoice will be e-mailed to you. Payment must then be received within 7 days. Make checks payable to SOTC and mail to the address given on the invoice.
Please don't mail cash!
A $20 fee will be charged for returned (bounced) checks or credit-card chargebacks.
If your registration is contingent on (say) passing a run-through or class graduation that hasn't occurred yet, don't wait! Go ahead and register, but choose the INVOICE ME option (rather than PAY ONLINE), and tell the Registrar about the situation. Payment can wait until you have had the run-through or passed the graduation.
If you are not a member and the class you want has any kind of prerequisite, you'll need to obtain a permission code from the Registrar.(back to top)
