Do I have to register for classes or can I just walk in without registering?Pre-registering is required. The instructors need to have a text book and hand-outs for every student. Pre-registering allows the instructor to have a head count. Also, if a student walks in and the class is full, students who have pre-registered are given priority seating over the walk-in.
