Registrations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis, based on completed registrations.  Some classes fill up and if that happens, you will be placed on a waiting list. 


More rarely, some classes that are initially offered are withdrawn due to insufficient registration.  If you do not get into a course for which you attempted to register, you will be offered a place in another course or you will receive a full refund of your tuition payment.


The LRP offers language examinations only to students registered for a course.
