REGISTRATION, FEES AND POLICIES
Registration: You can register in one of two ways:
1. Register online beginning at 8 AM, Monday, January 9, at www.renesan.org and pay by credit card. We strongly encourage you to register by this method. If you have taken a class, trip, or the lecture series, you are already in our system – just sign in and register! A step-by-step online registration guide is in the Downloads (.pdf) section on the right front page of our website and on page 45 of this catalog.
(Note: On the first day of registration, January 9, you must log on to www.renesan.org after 8:00 AM. If you go online to the RENESAN website before 8:00 AM, you will not be able to register for classes until you logout and then go back online after 8:00 AM. This applies only to Monday, January 9.)
2. Register by filling in a downloaded registration form obtained under the Downloads (.pdf) section on the right front page of our website (www.renesan.org), and bring it to the office at St. John’s United Methodist Church, 1200 Old Pecos Trail, beginning at 10 AM, Tuesday, January 17. When you bring in your form, we will help you register.
We no longer accept mail-in registrations.
Fees: Class fees are $15 per session. Some classes require texts that students purchase themselves or electronic handouts that they will need to print.
Fees for lectures and RENESAN Reads! are $10, and can be paid at the door by cash or check, or you may register in advance online using a credit card or web credit for individual RENESAN Reads! discussions. For one-session classes, you may register in advance (and use a web credit if you have one), or show up at the door and pay $15.
No web credits may be used at the door for lectures, one-session classes, or RENESAN Reads!
Trip fees vary and appear in the description for each trip.
Enrollment Limits: Some classes and trips have enrollment limits. Enrollment in these programs is “first come, first served.” If a program is full, you may choose to be placed on a waiting list. You are not charged for the program until a space becomes available. If a space becomes available, we will notify you by email or phone, and secure the space for you if you still want it. Then you will pay for your space by check, cash, or credit card.
Guest Policy: You may bring one guest who is not a current RENESAN student to one session of a class that consists of three or more sessions and has not reached its maximum enrollment. Attendance for more than one session requires registration and full payment. Contact the office to verify that the class has space and to provide the guest’s name.
Snow Policy: RENESAN follows the snow policy of the Santa Fe Public Schools. Classes and lectures are cancelled when the Santa Fe school system announces its classes are cancelled. In case of a two or three hour delay, morning classes will run from 10:30-12:30, and afternoon classes will run as scheduled. When Santa Fe schools close early because of inclement weather, RENESAN classes and lectures will be cancelled for the rest of the day. If possible, make-up sessions will be scheduled for cancelled classes and lectures. Students who are unable to participate in rescheduled programs will receive a refund.
For information on Santa Fe Public School closures, go to www.sfps.info, or tune in to KOB News 4, KOAT News 7, or KRQE News 13.
Trips may also be cancelled because of inclement weather or other circumstance beyond RENESAN’s control. Participants will be notified by phone of any cancellations. If possible, cancelled trips will be rescheduled. Students who are unable to participate in rescheduled programs will receive a refund.
Withdrawals: To withdraw from a class or trip, email Victoria Ballesteros, Web Manager, at email@example.com. Withdrawals before the first day of a class or a week in advance of a trip will receive a refund based on payment method, less a $10 cancellation fee. No credits will be issued if you cancel after a class begins or in the week before a trip. Please do not give your spot to another person; it goes to the next person on the waiting list if the class or trip is full.
Scholarships: RENESAN has a scholarship fund that enables students requiring financial assistance to participate in our programs. Scholarship applications are available at www.renesan.org or in the RENESAN office. All requests are confidential.
