Enrollment F.A.Q.

 How can I become a member?

You can purchase a membership at any time. Choose your membership here: https://www.afseattle.org/join/become-a-member/

Members who register for any course at AFSeattle will have their $40 registration fee waived. 


I am a new student. Can I enroll for Winter 2021 directly on the website? How do I choose a course?

  1. Take our online placement test (mandatory for all new students, and students returning after 3 terms or more)
  2. Upon receiving a result, you can register in the corresponding course. Please be careful when choosing a course/level and follow the following guidelines: https://www.afseattle.org/learn-french/levels-schedule/


Please note that we have a strict policy regarding level placement, as it may affect teaching methods, learning progress, and the course experience for the rest of the class. Our educational team will proceed to transfers or un-enrollments in case of registration in the wrong level.

Students who have not taken a placement test before the start of their class in January will be automatically un-enrolled.

 

 I want to enroll my children in the youth courses, but we are new students. Why does the course say “restricted”?

Our youth program (all courses for kids, youth, and teens) is organized on an academic year schedule. This means that the classes started in the Fall and will continue until June. Previously enrolled students have priority enrollment for Winter 2021 until December 15, 2020. New students are accepted if there is availability in the class, and if their fluency level corresponds to the rest of the group.

To enroll, please:

  1. Have your child take our placement test online: https://www.afseattle.org/placement-tests/ (you can create an account with several family members if needed). 
  2. Upon receiving a result, you can register in the corresponding course. Please be careful when choosing a level/course: you can view the different options here: https://www.afseattle.org/learn-french/youth-classes/

 
Students who have not taken a placement test before the start of their class in January will be automatically un-enrolled.


 How can I check which courses I have taken in the past at AFSeattle?

You can view your invoice history in your student account: https://www.afseattle.org/community/profile/ under the tab “Purchase History”.

You can also view your past courses on your Apolearn account: https://afusa.apolearn.com/catalog/mine

 The course I want to enroll in is sold out!

We are sorry if the course you want if no longer available. Since our move online this year, we have established that a 6-student limit is the best teaching and learning environment for our online courses. We will add you to the waitlist for the class if you send us a quick note at info@afseattle.org. Sometimes, a student drops out before the start of the class.

A waitlist of 3-4 students will also prompt our team to try and open a new course, upon teacher availability. Such courses, created and added to the catalog upon request after the early registration period, are not eligible for the early bird discount.

 Will you ship my textbook during the holidays? 

YES! Your textbook will be shipped to you during the holidays. We prioritize shipping by course start date.
 

 I am enrolled and my class starts in January. What's next? 

You will receive a course confirmation with instructions at the latest 2 days before the start of your course. Your instructor will also open the Apolearn e-learning platform for your course at this time. That is where you will find the course content and the Zoom link to access your virtual class!
