Helpful Information


Registration Process

Please use the link to register for classes.  If you cannot sign-up online and do not have anyone that can help you with sign-up, text your name and desired class to (205) 928-8258. We will respond to your text within 24 hours. If you cannot text, call (205) 928-8258 and leave a message with your name and desired class. Your registration will be confirmed within 24 hours via text or a phone call. We recommend taking a screenshot or a picture of your registration for your records or otherwise writing down your choice. This will also serve as verification that you have reserved a spot in the class. After your initial confirmation via text or phone, we will contact you via the email address you provide to provide detailed information about the next steps and what to expect, including the class schedule, the format and procedures of the class, how we teach through Zoom, and the curriculum.

Classes begin the first week of February and run for 8 weeks. You will be assigned a University student as a personal tutor for the class. Before registering, please make sure you are able to attend that class regularly on that day and at that time. We do understand you may miss a week or two due to health, family, or personal issues, but note that we will be assigning an individual tutor to you who is committing to teach you for 8 weeks. If you need to change your registration, text us at (205) 928-8258 with the change.

If you have questions about any of the classes, please text your question to (205) 928-8258. Texting allows us to be much more efficient in communications, given the time-consuming process of connecting through a phone call (“phone tag”). We do understand that texting may not be possible in certain circumstances such as visual impairment or other challenges. In those instances, call (205) 928-8258 and leave a message. We will return your call within 24 hours.

Registration Information for Fall 2021

Registration for the fall semester will open in August 2021.

Class Format

All classes in Spring 2021 will be conducted virtually through the Zoom platform. You do not have to register for a free account to use Zoom, but registration will be helpful so you can access all the features. You do not have to purchase an account – just use the free account option. You will receive detailed instructions from us with pictures on how to create a free Zoom account and how to access a meeting. There will be no cost for these classes.

Beginner computer users will be guided through the easy process of using Zoom. We will provide assistance to whatever extent you need.  You will have the option of watching a video on how to use Zoom and/or participating in a Zoom help session the week before classes start. During these sessions, you will be shown how to use the features in Zoom to take advantage of all the options available for your learning experience. You will also be able to call a phone number for verbal assistance during your first 2 weeks.

You will need a consistent Internet connection for the Zoom calls. If you are logged off due to loss of connectivity, you can rejoin the class and resume learning.

All classes are 75 minutes long and run for 8 weeks. Participants in the adult classes receive certification from The University of Alabama LIFT program upon completion of the 8-week course.
