How to Register for Courses


Registration in a course is open to everyone.  The cost of a course is dependent on the number of sessions.  For most of our courses, the cost to all member/contributors is $5 per session. You will need a password to purchase a"ticket " for a course at that rate.  We will send you a password  via email. The cost for each course session to non-member/contributors is $10 per session.


To register for a course, click on "read more" on the listing for the course on the News & Courses page, then click on "register now for this course on Brown Paper Tickets" for each course you wish to attend. All new courses are on the right column of the News & Courses page. We use Brown Paper Tickets to register people for our courses.

You can now also register for a course by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006.  You will be connected to a live agent after you press the right buttons on your phone to "buy a ticket."  Just tell the live agent which course you would like to sign up for and your password, if you have one.

Brown Paper Tickets charges a small processing cost for each course.  Some courses may have an additional cost for special circumstances (food, buses, admissions, etc.).

Please remember to have Brown Paper Tickets send you a reminder about courses you sign up for or are interested in.  You can do this when you first arrive on the BPT entry for each course. The "Remind Me" section is at the bottom right part of  the course's webpage on BPT.
