How to Register

Prior to registration, if you have questions about your eligibility or course prerequisites, call 626.396.2319. It may be necessary to meet with, or submit samples of your artwork to an ACN advisor.

Registration forms and course tuition must be received by the Friday preceding the start of the term.

Your early registration reserves your seat in class and helps ensure your course selections meet required enrollment levels. Courses without the required minimum enrollment, as determined by the program director, will be cancelled one to three days before the first class meeting. Students enrolled in a cancelled course will be notified by an ACN staff member.

Your space in class is not guaranteed until your registration has been received and processed. We highly recommend using our secure online registration process as the fastest way to register and pay for Art Center at Night classes.

Late registration forms will be accepted the first week of the term for courses with available seats. They can be submitted online, in person at the Public Programs office or by fax with credit card payment.

Once the term begins, a non-refundable late registration fee of $50 per course will be charged. Note: This does not apply to shorter workshops or for courses that begin later in the term.

A $10 fee will be charged for a first returned check. A $20 fee will be charged for any subsequent returned checks.
