Paper Registration - If you must

To register for your term courses by mail, please use the registration form supplied in the W/S 2018 catalog on page 93. Paper registrations are not entered until after registration is opened and you may not get in to all of your classes due to the delay.

Materials Fee

Materials fees are due at the time of registration unless otherwise stated. Where indicated, materials fees are non-refundable. Should you not be admitted to a course, your prepaid fee will be made into an electronic voucher (credit).

NEW: A $10 material fee per session is required for all off-campus courses to subsidize the rental fee.

Confirmation Letters

As you are registered, a "confirmation of class registration" will be automatically emailed to you for each course you are enrolled in. If you do not have email, a course confirmation will be mailed to you. Should a course not be listed, it means that you are on the waiting list for which you will
receive a waitlist email. You will be notified via email, or phone, if and when you are enrolled in a wait listed class. Please do not attend any classes for which you do not have a confirmation.

Adding and Dropping Courses

To add a course(s) after registering, please either go online to do so, or email the office at osher@cmu.edu. If you want to drop a course, please also notify the office so another member can attend. This cannot be done online; please email the office at osher@cmu.edu.

IMPORTANT: You must receive a course confirmation in order to attend a course. A course confirmation is not the same as a waiting list notice.

Waiting Lists

You are encouraged to add you name to the waiting list for each filled course that interests you. Many courses are expanded prior to the start of the term and as registrants drop courses, more are added from the waiting list. If you become unavailable, please remove your name from the waiting list by signing into you account and click on "My Waiting List" Tab.
