If you want to take any of these courses, your first step is to fill out our enrollment form and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you are taking the Computer 101 course, you can call us instead of filling out the form. The phone number is 914-620-2284.
Once we receive your enrollment form, we'll contact you by email to set up a short, confidential voice chat or phone call so you can ask any questions you might have, and we can explain how our courses work. This is a good time for you to find out if our courses will meet your needs and discuss any needs for accomodation if you have multiple disabilities.
You may be wondering what kind of tools or equipment you'll need to take our courses. Check out our Tools For Student Success page to see what you'll need.
