Search for your Course
Type a word into the search box describing the kind of course you want. (For example, Watercolor, Language, Business, Computer, etc.) If you don't see what you're looking for, try typing in only the first few letters of a word, or try related words. You may also search by the course number or title of the course.

Step 2

Review the Results
A course list will appear based on the search words or course number you entered. Click on the up/down arrows in each column to sort the list by course title, location, course number, start/end dates or instructor. You can click on the Title to get a more detailed description of the course, or on the Location to get more information about the location of the course. To return to the full list of classes, or start your search over again, simply delete the words you typed in the search box and the full list of courses will reappear.

Step 3

Select Your Course
Select the box beside the course or courses you want to have added to your “shopping cart”. You may register for multiple classes at the same time. Deselect the box to remove a course from your cart or simply remove it under the selected classes at the bottom.

Step 4

Complete the Registration Process
At the bottom of the screen, click Proceed to Checkout to be directed to WebAdvisor, where you will officially sign up and pay for your course.
