How to register

No in-person registration is available.  In order to register, participants must have created an inspira account as either:

Those who have never taken a language course at Headquarters but are not beginners need to register for a placement test. Also returning students who have taken TWO terms off (or more) will need to register for this test.


To register follow these three steps in order:

1. Access inspira.

 
2. Request access to New York Language Courses through inspira, if not already accessible.     
 
3. Once you have access, then register for language courses (or placement tests).

 

Confirmation e-mail will be sent once registration is completed. Only students who receive email confirmation of their enrolment are considered "registered". Waitlisted students are not allowed to attend classes.


A VIDEO TUTORIAL AND QUICKGUIDES ARE AVAILABLE 

TO HELP STUDENTS AT EACH STEP OF THEIR ENROLMENT.
