There are two steps to secure a spot on one of our programs: fill out the registration form and pay a deposit.

Registration Process:

  1. Fill out our online registration form. See below.
  2. Pay a deposit. You can do so with a credit card on our Tuition page. Your spot is secured when we receive your deposit.

If you’re on the GI Bill, go to our GI Bill page for the application procedure.

Printable Registration Form:

We strongly prefer online registrations using the form below, but you can also print, fill-out and mail our old registration form to our NH address:

Rolling Admission:

We have a rolling admission policy for all of our programs. You may apply at any time up until the deadline for each specific program. When all spots are taken, the course is full and we place subsequent applicants onto a waiting list.

School Policies:

Before registering, please read our School Policies.

Registration Details:

Minimum Enrollment: If a minimum enrollment is not met by the application deadline, those signed up have two options. The program can be run with below minimum enrollment, but with an increase in tuition (to meet the minimum enrollment level), or the program may be cancelled and the full tuition (including the deposit) will be refunded.

About the essay for extended programs: Please keep in mind that you’re not applying to a doctorate program in English composition or creative writing. But since the possibility of us meeting in person before the course is low, we ask you to write a short essay in order to get to know a little bit about you. We don’t use it as a basis for admission decisions. We only use it to get a feel for who you are and where you’re coming from. So if you’re the type who stresses about things like this, don’t. Sit down with a piece of paper and write like you’re introducing yourself to a friend of a friend.
