All About Registration
Online registration happens through the first two weeks of the term. If registration online is not working for you, please call (503) 597-9100. We are here to help!
1. Create (or update) Your Family Account
If you are new to Village Home, please click “Login” (above) and then “Create New Account” on our REGISTRATION LOGIN page. If you are a returning family, please do not make a duplicate account – if you need assistance locating your account, contact the office.
Returning families, please update your family information using the links on your family homepage. There are separate links for the main account, each student or parent and emergency contacts. Please include recent photos of your family members (nothing fancy). Be sure to keep your account up-to-date; it helps us keep everyone safe.
2. Register Online when online Registration Opens (See calendar).
Shop for Classes using our schedule grid. Click the course code link on the grid to go to the details page. Clicking “Register Now!” will put the course in your shopping cart. (Prior to registration opening, the “register now” will say “read only”.) Next, click “Continue Shopping” to select additional courses, or click “Checkout” to complete your registration. If you are not already logged in, you will be prompted to login or create a new account. After you’ve completed our account registration form you will be taken to the payment page to complete payment and select a payment plan if desired. Once you have made payment in full or elected to use the payment plan, you are officially enrolled.
Continuing Classes From Term-to-Term
If you are enrolled in a class in a current term, your seats in your current classes will be reserved for you for the next term. This system insures that your learner won’t lose a spot in a class mid-year. To pay for your continuing classes, login during registration week and look for the invoice with your continuing class registrations. To do this go to My Billing tab, then My Invoices tab. Newest invoices will be at the top. Look for a recent date to know you have the right invoice. Simply make a payment on your invoice to secure your classes during registration week. If you cannot pay online with a credit card, contact the office to make alternative arrangements. t the end of the registration week for Winter or Spring Terms, if you have NOT made payment to change your status from “pending” to “enrolled”, your pending classes will be deleted from your account. Please do not LOSE your seat in a continuing class — be sure to make your first payment during continuing registration week.
If there are classes you do not wish to continue, simply email or call the office and we will adjust your schedule. Or, fill out a Drop Request online. Drops cannot be done by you in your account. You can request drops before registration, and, in fact, that is preferred. So, if you are certain you do not want to continue in a class, let us know right away so that we can release the seat before registration opens. If you wish to add new classes, you may place them in your cart and check-out. To complete check-out, you will need to make payment in full or put the invoice on a payment plan. Accounts with multiple payment plan invoices will have their invoices merged together during the break. You may add classes and activities any time from the beginning of registration through the add/drop period.
Adding or Dropping a Class
You may add/drop classes anytime between the opening of registration and the end of the add/drop period. The add/drop period is the first two weeks of the term.
In order to not be charged for a class, you must drop on or before the day of the second class meeting. (If a class meets more than once a week, that may mean that you must drop the course in week one to avoid being charged.) After the add/drop period, there are no refunds for tuition and fees. Adds may be made anytime during registration and the add/drop period. in your family account online, or in the office. Drop requests may be made through the office (503-597-9100) or online here. You CANNOT drop classes in your family account, but you can ADD classes.
