Registration and Funding
To register for a course, simply follow these two steps:
- Fill out the Center for Collections Care Registration Form and select the course you are interested in.
- Pay the fees associated with your course here. The standard fee includes tuition, on-campus accommodations, and meals (breakfast and lunch). Participants who plan to commute and do not require room and board save $200. On the payment site, simply scroll down to "Other" and enter the fee associated with your class minus $200. Please be aware that using your credit card will incur transaction fees and we are not able to refund them.
If you should have any questions regarding billing or payment, please contact the Beloit College Accounting Office at (608) 363-2239.
The Center strongly recommends that participants do not finalize travel arrangements until they receive written confirmation that their class has met the minimum enrollment. The Center will not reimburse participants for travel expenses or credit card transaction fees.
As soon as the minimum enrollment for a class is met, participants will be notified. Any classes that have not met their minimum registration requirements a month in advance will be cancelled.
Participants who cancel their registration after the course has been confirmed will not be reimbursed for their course fees. Participants who cancel before course confirmation will receive a full refund, minus a $200 administrative fee.
State and regional professional organizations are often a source of funding for professional development. For example, the Wisconsin Federation of Museums offers “mini-grant awards of up to $750 annually to assist affiliate institutions in the care and exhibit of collections, training of staff, and improving overall service to their communities.”
In addition, with advanced planning, funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation Assistance Grants for Small Institutions can be used for training at the Center for Collections Care at Beloit College.
