How to Register for Courses

Great Discourses activities are designed for adults from all walks of life. Although most registrations are processed automatically through this website, you can also register by email or telephone. We accept tuition payment by credit card, PayPal, and check. Most courses are eligible for “Early Bird” reduced tuition as well as tuition discounts and tuition waivers for qualified students. All are covered by our money back satisfaction guarantee.

Step 1: Find the Course(s) You Wish to Take

Complete information about all of our upcoming courses can be found in the OUR COURSES section of this website. If you will be registering by email or telephone, please make a note of the course number(s) and the section(s) you wish to register for.

Step 2: Register Yourself (and Others)

For One Course

Register online by using the appropriate REGISTER NOW link on the course REGISTRATION tab or register by email or telephone. The online registration system is capable of registering up to 6 participants in a single transaction (you will need to supply a valid email address for each registrant). Group registrations are generally eligible for group discounts.

For Multiple Courses

Our online registration system cannot currently process registrations for multiple courses as a single transaction. Please contact us by email or telephone so we can process your registration manually and apply whatever multi-course registration discount you may be eligible for.

Step 2: Register Someone Else

If you wish to register someone else for a single course (perhaps as a gift), you can register online by following the regular registration instructions (entering the student’s name and email address in the spaces provided) or by email or telephone. If you wish to register someone else for multiple courses, please contact us by email or telephone so we can process your registration manually.

Step 3: Read Welcome Email

Once your registration has been processed, everyone you registered will receive a welcome email with important information about preparing for and accessing your course, class or event. Please ensure that your email provider and spam filter(s) will allow you to receive email from

Minimum and Maximum Class Sizes

In order to provide high-quality educational experiences, each section of our live, fully-interactive courses has a maximum enrollment ceiling as well as a minimum enrollment floor. If the minimum number of students has not been met 48 hours before the beginning of the course section in which you have enrolled, that section will be cancelled and your tuition payment (if any) will be refunded in full or applied to another course, as you choose. Your understanding is appreciated.

Please Note

Great Discourses accepts registrations on a first-come, first-served basis but reserves the right to accept, refuse or cancel any registration for any reason at its sole discretion. All registrations are subject to Great Discourses’ “Terms & Conditions”.
