The University of Alabama determines the method of instruction (in person or distance) for the CMS program. Some lesson teachers may opt to teach a hybrid of in-person/distance lessons or entirely by distance or entirely in-person. Enroll after you have confirmed the method of instruction for your activity. Distance lessons (alternative methods of instruction) occur by ZOOM, via computer, laptop, or phone. Zoom is a videoconferencing app and does not require you (the CMS student) to have an account (it is FREE for you!). A link with directions on how to connect will be sent to you by your CMS teacher. If you do not have access to a computer, your lesson can occur via your phone (FaceTime, etc.). As with all University of Alabama faculty/instructors, your CMS teacher remains committed to providing a meaningful engagement that is pedagogically sound within both in-person and distance formats.
UA mandates: CMS follows all UA mandates and guidelines. Vaccinations are strongly suggested but not required. At this time there is no mask mandate.
How to Enroll
Use the link below ( text in red caps). Payments may be made in two ways: in full, or a payment plan (deferment) for fall/spring. Summer session is payment in full. Regardless of payment type selected, an enrollment form must be completed each session and payment must be made before attending the first lesson or class.
If selecting Payment Plan (deferment) a credit card may be used for the first payment only. Remaining deferment payments must be made via check mailed directly to:
The University of Alabama Student Account Services Office
Attn. Nicholas Foy
Box 870120 Student Services Bldg.
Tuscaloosa, AL 35487.
The CMS office is staffed during business hours, but walk-in traffic is by appointment. Email Dr. Weigel. Online enrollment and payment by credit/debit card is preferred. If you must pay by check or cash to enroll, contact Dr. Weigel for instructions.
With teacher permission, the office will prorate the session cost for fewer than the full session of lessons. If you do not see your prorated number of lessons available on the online form, please contact Jane Weigel.
If you are are enrolling using the online form for the first time you will be required to create a user profile before you can register. Use a hardwired computer, not a smart phone or tablet. Private Lesson teacher names may not all be listed on the enrollment form – if you do not see your teacher’s name, use the generic “Undergraduate Teacher” or “Graduate Teacher”, etc. title to enroll.
