Paying by credit card

* Please note that the credit card processor does not currently work with certain versions of the Mac operating system.
* If you are an organization paying for an employee, please note that the student account must be created with the student’s information, not a company representative’s.

  1. Locate the class you would like to register for . The most effective way to use the search is to enter as few criteria as possible: for example, a keyword from the title and a Subject Area / Program. The more criteria that are entered, the more your search is limited.
  2. Click [Add to Cart] . Select any valid price adjustments if they are available (e.g., Early Bird Discount).
  3. Click [Continue Checkout] . You will then be taken to a Login page. If you registered for a non-credit class since December 2011 , enter your username and password and proceed with checkout. If you last took a class before December 2011 , or have never taken a class, please select New User , enter your e-mail address, and proceed with check-out to create a student account.
  4. Check your e-mail . You will receive an enrollment confirmation with a PDF payment receipt attached.

* If you are an organization registering multiple employees by credit card in numbers where it is not feasible to enroll them individually (e.g., sending eight clinicians to a mental health seminar), please have your employees create their student accounts here. Once they have all been created, call 503-725-9968 to pay by phone or e-mail to arrange the best time for us to reach you.
