Registration in courses is restricted to SCANS members in good standing, i.e. your membership dues for the year must have been received before you are confirmed in any course. Please see our membership page for details.
Each term begins with an Information Session in each SCANS community.These events are held about four weeks before classes begin, and they are structured to give learners a chance to hear instructors introduce their courses. If possible, instructors present in the order in which their course appears in our brochure and online.
You may join the organization or renew your membership at any Information Session.In some communities you may also register for courses at the Information Session. There is always time after the presentations to have a coffee and ask further questions.
hoW MANY COURSES?
SCANS members may register for as many courses as they wish to attend, in any SCANS community, during the period of their three-term membership in the organization.
All registrations are processed in the order in which they are received.If course registrations exceed the number of available seats, the SCANS Registrar will create a waitlist and promptly notify those on it.If a course is marked ‘full’, it is worthwhile to ask to be placed on a waitlist.
If a course has fewer than 10 registrants, SCANS will consider cancellation. This has rarely happened, but you will be notified promptly if it does. If weather or other event requires a class to be cancelled, class members will be notified.Weather-related cancellations will also be put on the home page of the website.
