Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay for my WISE membership and register for my courses?

When will I be able to register for courses?

Course registration can happen anytime, even if a semester has already started. 

Registration for each session starts:
  • Fall session - late August
  • Spring session - early December
  • Summer - early May

Registration remains open to add courses throughout the term. You can add any course you like at any time. If a course is already full, you will be placed on a wait list, and you will be informed that you are registered for the course should a space open for you.

How do I cancel a course registration?

To cancel a course you've already registered for:

  1. Go to
  2. Click on the link for the course for which you'd like to unregister
  3. Click on the Cancel Registration button.
If something goes awry, send an email to with the name of the course that you'd like to drop. We'll let you know by email when the cancellation is complete. If you cannot attend a course, we encourage you to cancel your registration, as many courses fill, and others on the wait list will wish to attend.

How do I use Zoom for WISE classes?

This page, Using Zoom, tells you how to download and use Zoom. We also offer regular Zoom Coffee Breaks for WISE members to drop in and ask more detailed questions and pick up some helpful tips.

WISE members can find the Zoom links for their classes on the Zoom Links for Courses page.

My computer doesn't have a camera. Can I still participate in online classes?

Yes. You will be able to see other people on your computer screen. Others, however, will not be able to see you.

When my video isn't on, Zoom just shows my name in a black box. How can I change this?

You can add a picture of yourself so that people will know what you look like, even if they can't see you in the meeting. You will need to have a Zoom account to set up your profile. The Zoom account is free. Go to and click on the Sign up button in the upper right.
