We also offer various ways to save on tuition.

What is the registration fee?

Registration/Payment

There is a $25 registration fee per student, per term. It applies whether or not a student has taken a previous class with Gotham. But it's paid only one per term, even is a student takes multiple classes in that term.

The fee helps to cover administrative costs and to keep our tuitions affordable.

Do I have to pay in full before a class begins?

Registration/Payment

To register for a 10-Week course, you need to pay in full to guarantee your place in class. Or you can pay a $95 deposit plus a $25 registration fee (total $120) to temporarily hold your place, but tuition must be paid in full 10 business days before your class starts or you risk losing your spot.

To register for any course shorter than 10 weeks, you must pay in full when you register.

What payment methods do you accept?

Registration/Payment

You can pay for class using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, cash, money order, or check (drawn on a U.S. bank) payable to Gotham Writers Workshop.
