  • Registration Information/discounts:
    Write the CRN code (near the tuition at the bottom of the course description), the course number (near the course title), the course/institute name(s), and the tuition. Deduct $100 if you are a current ESM student or an ESM alumnus/alumna taking a noncredit institute.
  • Payment: Full payment of tuition and housing (if applicable) must accompany your application.
  • You may pay by check or by credit card. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you send your application by mail or fax if it includes a credit card number. Please do not send any credit card information via email.
  • Photography, Sound and Video Recording Release: Write name of student, then check “opt-in” or “opt-out.”
