Why can’t I register for a program listed online?

  • Please Note: Only those activities with a shopping cart next to them are available for on-line registration.

What if an activity is listed as full?

  • If a program allows for waitlist enrollment on-line, you may choose to be put on the waitlist. Although credit card information is required your credit card will not be charged to be added to the waitlist. Our registration staff will contact you if a spot opens up to verify that you would still like to be enrolled.  If so, your transaction will be processed at that time.
  • If you are on the waitlist, please do not attend the activity unless you were contacted by our staff.

What if I get a message that “a grade/age conflict exists for this class”?

When you are choosing which family member to register for the program you need to make sure you are using the drop down list to choose the correct person. The system defaults to the first person listed in the household which is usually mom or dad.

The rest of the credit will still remain on account for future use.
