How do I register for courses?

The application has two required components:

  1. Complete the information form
  2. Have your official transcripts sent to AOEU

How can I follow up and ensure my transcripts have been received?

Sometimes, transcripts come to us under a former last name. Please email registrar@theartofeducation.edu and include the following information:

  • The name associated with your official transcripts 
  • The university that sent them
  • How they were sent: electronically or by mail 

We'll associate them to your student record as soon as possible.


My information has been processed and I’ve been approved to take courses. Now what?

Let’s get you registered! You’ll receive an email and text (if you opt-in) asking you which course you’d like to take. We can register you, and then you’ll need to do two things: 

  1. Activate your AOEU-issued email 
  2. Pay for your course
    • Tuition must be paid in full by the course start date. You have the option to pre-register for a course and make partial payments towards tuition up until the due date. Learn more about making partial payments here

What if I decide to enter an AOEU degree program later?

If you are taking courses individually but decide to apply for a program at any time in the future, the AOEU credits earned may apply to the degree program when appropriate if all the conditions are met from the Transfer Credit Policy.

If you are interested in applying your credits towards an AOEU master’s degree please contact studentcoach@theartofeducation.edu
