How to Register

Important Dates

As usual, registrations for Fall 2023 ElderCollege courses are made here on our website. Visit our Fall 2023 page.

  • Monday August 14th: Registrations have opened at 8am.

Payment Options

Registration is still only $35.00, with no GST. Note: Free courses will show $0.00 but you will still need to complete registration.

Payment for registration can be made online via the PayPal Payment System. You do not need to open or have a PayPal account. You can use your Credit Card. (VISA, MasterCard and AMEX are accepted.) or use money in your PayPal account, if you have one.

A note to all: ElderCollege prefers payment by Credit Card or via a PayPal account, as this makes it simple and less work for our volunteer bookkeeper. However if  you do not have a credit card you may choose to pay by cheque. Cheques must be made payable to "Sunshine Coast ElderCollege" and mailed to:

Sunshine Coast ElderCollege
Post Office Box 1912,
Sechelt, B.C.
V0N 3A0

Remember it takes about six (6) business days for your mail to reach us.

Steps to Register

If you have previously created an account on our website, log into it before you start registering. (Creating an account is not necessary; it just saves you from having to re-enter your contact information each semester.)

Visit the Fall 2023 page of our website. Decide on the first course you want to take and click the Register button below it. The course will be added to a shopping cart.

If you wish to take additional courses, click the Continue Shopping button and click Register for the next course.

Note: Because our website automatically creates class lists for us, we need to ask you to register for one person at a time. For example, if you are registering for John and Jane Doe, please register for John's courses separately from Jane's.

After you have selected all the desired courses, click the Proceed to Checkout button on the "shopping cart" page. (If you are not on the shopping cart page, choose Registration then Registration Cart in the menu at the top of the website to get there.)

If you are not logged in, the website will then ask you for your contact information.  Fill that in.

Then click Proceed to PayPal. This will allow you to make payment with a PayPal account (if you have one) or by credit card. VISA, MasterCard and AMEX are all accepted.  If PayPal complains that your postal code is invalid, scroll to the top of the page and make sure that the right country has been selected. (PayPal auto-selects the country for you and sometimes it doesn't get it right.)

If you don't receive an email, check your spam folder. If there's nothing there, you can contact our registrar for support.
