|Correspondence Course Registration Guidelines|
The number of lessons and the number of months needed for each course are indicated in the course description. Typically, a course project is returned to the instructor for feedback at the end of each lesson. Most courses have only one lesson, in which case the project may be sent to the instructor only when it is completed for an additional charge of $25 paid directly to the instructor along with shipping/insurance charges. Courses may or may not require the purchase of a kit from the instructor. If a kit is required, or if there is an optional kit that can be purchased from the instructor, the kit fee is included with the description.
Registrants should allow a minimum of eight weeks from the time the registration request is mailed until the first lesson is received from the instructor. If participants registering as a group have established a tentative date to distribute the first lesson, including this date in the registration request is helpful. If a course contains several lessons, the instructor may not send all lessons with the first mailing; future lessons will be mailed upon completion and evaluation of prior lessons.
Included with the mailing of the first lesson will be a schedule of dates set by the instructor for returning completed lessons. If a student needs an extension of time, arrangements should be made with the instructor prior to the scheduled completion date. Extensions that result in a course length of more than 12 months will not be granted without prior approval of the Correspondence Course Chairman.
Each student (regardless of location) is responsible for all postage charges involved in mailing lessons to and from the instructor. When you send a project or lesson to the instructor for evaluation, you must include a reimbursement for return postage. ANG recommends not only that you insure your package, but that you check with the instructor before shipping to make sure someone is available to receive the package.
