Early Bird Discount
A $50 discount is given to students who pre-enroll before the early bird date listed on each designated course. To qualify, enrollment must be paid in full by the early bird fee deadline listed with the course profile. Enrollments received on or after the early bird deadline are subject to standard fees.
Companies or employers who enroll and pay for four or more participants in the same professional development course at the same time may receive a 25% discount off the standard enrollment fee. The discount must be requested at the time of enrollment and will not be applied retroactively. Prepayment is required. If the number of students enrolled using the discount drops below three, standard fees will apply. Certain courses, such as those that include computer lab activities or charge for textbooks and/or materials may be excluded from this policy.

An Alumni Membership card is required to receive the discount. The discount must be requested at the time of enrollment and will not be applied retroactively. Online enrollment is not available to students wishing to use this discount. Discounts are taken off the standard course fee.
