Class Registration

During registration, the student will take a test to determine their level of English. No student should enter a class without registering first. Once classes begin we will continue to accept registration based on space availability. Late applicants must register in person at The American Place.  

Class space is limited. If a class is filled, the library can provide online self-study materials and other options.
