Online Course Registration

General Information

Registration in courses is restricted to members in good standing, i.e. your membership dues for the year must have been received before you are confirmed on any course.

New and renewing members may pay for their membership and register for courses at the same time. For those who do join/renew and register at the same time, your course registration and membership will be confirmed prior to the start date of the course - we will contact you, please don't call the office for confirmation.

Remember to register early as some courses fill up very quickly! Register by mail, online or at one of the Registration and Information Sessions.
Online registration for this term's courses is NOW OPEN.

SCANS reserves the right to cancel a course if there are insufficient numbers registered by the start date. If so, all registrants will be contacted promptly.

If your chosen course is listed as FULL, consider adding your name to the waitlist for the next time this course is offered. Simply email your request to:
