  1. I heard that you guys are doing a registration carnival where there may be discounts on tuition and fee’s today? Also what time does the registration carnival begin and end? If I enroll my daughter for 1 hour class a week, for the fall semester that starts August 22nd what needs to be paid up front to enroll her?
