If you are having trouble providing photos or scanned images of the required documents, you can still complete the rest of your registration online, and then contact the enrollment team member at your school to schedule an in-person registration appointment. Their contact information is listed below. At the appointment, you will need to provide the required documents (listed below).

Full In-Person Registration
If you would prefer to complete your registration offline, you may call to schedule an appointment using the contact information below. Our staff will begin your registration over the phone, and you will complete the process at an in-person appointment. At the appointment, you will need to provide the required documents listed below.

All in-person appointments will be conducted with COVID safety guidelines in effect. Our staff will be wearing masks, and we require that you wear one as well.
