Registration Process

We are here to help you reach your goals. It's not too late to participate, but you must register for classes in order to participate. This information can be viewed in various languages by selecting "Language" at the top of the page and select a language from the drop down menu.

Listed below are the steps to enroll in an Adult Education class:

  1. Complete the Contact Information Form on the Registration Information webpage.

The registration packet is usually emailed out in three business days but can be delayed if the next class session is not scheduled to begin right away. If you do not see an email with the registration packet, please check your "junk mail" folder for emails from Adult Education. Send an email to AdultEd@pwcs.edu if you do not receive the registration packet and payment information two weeks after completing the Contact Information Form.
