Registration will be accepted on a first-received, first-processed basis upon receipt of the completed registration form with full payment, verification that prerequisites have been met (and documentation provided), and space availability. Within two weeks of receipt of the completed application and full payment, applicants will be notified of their application status.

Please make your hotel reservations as early as possible. Reservations made after the course registration deadline will be accepted on a space-available basis and may not qualify for discounted rates.
