Registration Methods

Early registrations are encouraged to ensure adequate enrollment and space availability. Many of our most popular courses fill well before the class begins. Course tuition must be paid for in full at the time of registration unless otherwise noted.

There are four ways to register for a class:

1. Online Registration

You may register online by locating a course on our website and paying with any major credit card (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover). You must complete a separate online registration for each person registering. 

2. Phone Registration

You may register by telephone by calling us at 404-727-6000, option 2, on weekdays between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM and paying with any major credit card. 

3. In-Person Registration

In-person registrations are welcomed on weekdays between 8:30 AM and 6:00 PM (Monday through Thursday) or 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM on Friday. You will receive an email confirming your registration.

4. Speedtype Registration

Emory faculty and staff may register by filling out the Speedtype Registration Form, receiving the appropriate authorizing signature, and either:

  • faxing the completed form to 404-727-6001, or
  • emailing a scanned copy of the form to
Register by SpeedType


Students should register for courses at least seven (7) days prior to their start dates to ensure ECE staff can provide the best experience possible.

Registrations within seven (7) days of a class start date may delay students receiving access to Canvas sites or other resources. 

Registration within one (1) day of a class start date may prevent a student from completing required prework, receiving course materials, or appearing on a roster. Students in this situation may be asked to visit ECE's front desk to get proof of registration and to pick up additional materials. 



When a class is full, you may see the “Join Waitlist” option, which allows you to be notified if a seat opens up. We process course waitlists in the order in which students joined. Be sure to include your email address and a telephone number so we can reach you should a seat become available.

Joining a waitlist does not guarantee a spot in the course. We recommend joining the next available section of a course to ensure you are able to register.

Registration FAQs

You must be 18 years of age or older to take courses with ECE. 

  • Students are not allowed to bring guests under the age of 18 into any ECE classroom or location.
  • Unaccompanied individuals under the age of 18 will be asked to leave.
  • ECE students must make appropriate child care arrangements prior to enrolling in ECE courses.
  • Refunds will not be granted to students who are unable to continue with coursework due to child care issues.

The only exceptions to this policy are our PSAT and SAT Prep courses, which permit students under the age of 18.

You will receive a registration confirmation via e-mail once you are successfully registered in a course or program. Your confirmation email includes the courses in which you are enrolled, the dates, times and location, the payment total, and any class notes pertinent to the course.

Emory’s reputation as an international university leads some students to think that taking classes with Emory Continuing Education will make them eligible for a visa to enter the United States. This is not the case, as we do not provide for-credit education. However, some students may have a visa already and are able to enter the United States to take a non-credit course with us.

Our in-person courses and programs are offered exclusively on-ground in Atlanta, GA. If you would like to travel to the United States to participate, you are responsible for arranging and financing the following:

  • Legal entry into the United States. ECE offers exclusively non-credit education, and enrollment with us will not allow you to receive, extend, or otherwise affect an F-1 or J-1 visa

  • Your own room, board, and travel. ECE is not located on the Emory University campus and does not offer housing or food services

If you’re interested in taking for-credit courses that may qualify you for a student visa at Emory University (not Emory Continuing Education), you can find information here:


Most courses and programs at Emory Continuing Education are open to the public and do not require any formal admissions process. Exceptions are noted on course and program pages.
