Enrollment and Policies

Enrollment for all courses is accepted each quarter once the brochure has been mailed and posted on the website nualumnae.org  We cannot provide advance notice of the mailing/posting.


  • EACH 90 minute, 9-week course is $225.00. The fee covers in-person attendance and grants access to each live-streaming in-person lecture and the weekly recording which is available for 6 days only following the lecture.  For those attending in person, a registration card must be shown each time you enter.
  • Late course registrations require payment of the full course price; courses are not prorated. Late registrants will NOT be able to access recordings from prior weeks if the links and passcodes have expired.
  • There is no multi-course discounting.
  • In-person per diems: Per diem students will be admitted for $30 per class session (cash or check only). Per diem students will not have access to lecture recordings.  There are no online per diems.

Attendance Options

  • In-person attendance: To ensure receipt of materials for in-person attendance, enrollment must be completed by Monday, March 6, 2023. Your class entry card, and “purple sheet” with class locations and times, will be mailed to you about two weeks before the courses begin. If enrollment occurs after Monday, February 27, 2023, these items will be held for pick up at the proctor table.

Your class entry card must be shown each week to the proctors at the entry door. Those arriving without their card will be given a temporary card, ONE time only. Thereafter, a replacement entry card will be provided for $30.
