How to Watch A Good Class Disappear

Most of our classes are cost-recovery and we need a minimum number of students enrolled early to keep the program running. When too many people wait until the last minute to register, great classes taught by excellent instructors get cancelled.
Don't be disappointed - REGISTER EARLY!
