All classes are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Confirmation of enrollment will be sent. It is possible to attend a single session of multi-session courses for a pro-rated fee. You may enroll by mail or online. As courses sell out quickly, it is advised to enroll online for quicker confirmation.
Trip "Interest List" Policy
Once a study tour is announced, either in our brochure or on our website, you may call the registrar, Janice D'Angelo, at 713.666.9000 and ask that your name be placed on the "Interest List".
One week before an eblast advertising the trip is scheduled to be sent to our database and the registration documents are posted on the website, you will receive an email including the trip itinerary, cost, and registration documents. The registration and release-of-claims forms, along with the deposit, must be returned to the registrar to secure a reservation. These forms may be mailed, or emailed, with payment by check or credit card, and will be recorded and accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. It is recommended that you not purchase any non-refundable plane tickets until you receive confirmation from the registrar that your trip reservation is secure.
If your contact information changes between the time you sign up for the Interest List and the time the registration date is announced, it is your responsibility to notify our registrar.
Any individual or couple signing up for more than three courses on the same registration form may discount the total fee by 10 percent. However, calculations of total costs eligible for the discount cannot include out-of-town trips or excursions. Discount is available only on forms mailed to The Houston Seminar. Teachers and students at accredited institutions may attend classes for a discounted fee of $10 per session with a school I.D.
You will receive a partial refund if you cancel at least two weeks before a course begins; a 20 percent cancellation fee will be charged. If your enrollment has caused others to be turned away from a limited-enrollment class, no refund will be issued unless your place can be filled. Refund policies for courses involving travel may differ.
These are available for a single session, a specific course, or a dollar amount, which the recipient may apply toward any course(s). Notification will be mailed to the donor and the designated recipient. Please call for more information, or send request and payment with this form.
For further information, telephone 713-666-9000.
