How to register
Choose the class you wish to take and make note of the prefix, class number and title (ex. HCT 099X Beginning Beading). Then, just stop by or call the campus/center location nearest you, register and pay for the class at least three (3) days before the first session starts to ensure the class is not cancelled due to low enrollment. Some classes may have an additional supply fee that must be paid directly to the instructor at the first class meeting.
