Registration: Frequently Asked Questions
Q. THE CLASS I WANT SAYS WAITLIST ONLY, SHOULD I SIGN UP FOR ANOTHER CLASS?
A. iO gives priority to students who are on the waitlist, but not enrolled in another class. So, it’s up to you. If you can make another class, and it’s open, you might as well sign up for it. PLEASE DON’T ENROLL IN A CLASS THAT YOU CAN’T MAKE.
Q: I CAN NO LONGER ATTEND THE CLASS I SIGNED UP FOR, WHAT CAN I DO? As long as you contact the Training Center before your class starts, you can roll your tuition to a later date. Once the class begins, we cannot roll tuition.
Q. I CAN’T AFFORD CLASS, WHAT THE HECK DO I DO?
A. If you can’t pay the full $280 tuition for our improvisation classes, you can secure your spot with a deposit of $$130. This is an option you can choose when registering online. You will need to enroll in an auto pay where the other $150 is charged on the Friday of the third week of classes. You can pay the balance in advance of that date by logging in to your account or calling the Training Center. This only applies to our core improv classes. Writing classes and electives must be paid in full.
Q. I HAVE COMPLETED A LEVEL/THE PROGRAM AND I’D LIKE TO RETAKE A CLASS. IS THERE A DISCOUNT?
A. If you would like to repeat a level within 1 year of successfully completing it, you can do so at 1/2 price. Please call the Training Center for the discount code. If it has been more than 1 year, you would need to pay the full price.
Q. I AM A 5B ALUM, CAN I REGISTER ONLINE?
A. The alumni code does not work for 5B classes. Please call the Training Center on the day of registration to sign up over the phone. Priority is given to students who are going through the program for the first time.
Q. WILL I HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING THE CLASS I WANT IF I CALL OR COME IN?
A. Actually your chances will be slightly worse. If you come in or call in the Training Center Staff be using the web portal to register you. All class registration is handled via the web portal on a first come first serve basis regardless of registration method. Best to register your self on line.
Q. CAN I REGISTER OTHER PEOPLE?
A. Sorta. You can pay for another person’s class with your credit card,but it must be a separate order from yours. Make one transaction for yourself and log out, then either create an account for that person or use their login to purchase a class in their name. If you buy 2 of one class, it will create a space in the class with no name attached and will be resold.
