Registration guidelines for Fall 2017
Registration for study groups is on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration for fall study groups begins August 15, 2017, the date of the Open House. Early registrations will be date stamped August 15, 2017 and processed with the other registrations received on that date.
Those with a legitimate priority request – that is, they were wait-listed for the same study group in the previous semester and checked the priority request box – are given first consideration. After that, if a study group is over-subscribed, then members are chosen by lottery. This usually happens in only a few study groups. Those not filled on the first day of registration – and this will be the majority of them if past experience is any indicator – will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Every semester’s offering is a mixture of old study groups, revised, and new ones. If you want to see a full range of possibilities you can review older catalogs from Fall 2016, Spring 2015, Fall 2014, Spring 2014, and Fall 2013. Please keep in mind these are out-dated catalogs. Wait for the current catalog, issued each semester, to apply for membership and register for study groups.
