Registration will be on a "first-come-first-served" basis, and all registration is conducted through the online form below. Please contact us by phone or email if you wish to register for a class the day it begins or after it has already begun. Classes with low enrollment may be canceled.
For Chinese Language Tutoring, no formal registration is required, participants are limited to Confucius Institute at WMU students. Appointment is required. Tutoring time is limited to 30 minutes for each participant.
A half-price discount is offered to WMU students, and senior citizens (55 or above). However, some classes have "Material fees" apart from the tuition cost, which all participants must pay in full.
Starting from fall 2017, WMU employees are only required to pay $25 registration fees and material fees (if applicable), no other tuition cost.
For example, if you are a WMU employee, and you want to take the Taichi Fan class, the total amount you need to pay is $25 (registration fee) + $30 (material fee) = $55. If you are a WMU student or senior citizen, and you want to take the Taichi Fan class, the total amount you need to pay is $55 (half-price discount ) + $30 (Material fee) = $85.

Western Michigan University's main campus offers metered parking spaces in most of its lots for use by guests; faculty, staff and student are required to have a parking pass and to park in the area of the lots designated by their pass. There is no "free" parking on campus. Meters accept only quarters and change machines are offered in some of the lots.
While the above items are useful tips about parking as it relates to participating in Confucius Institute culture classes, it is in your best interest to contact WMU Parking Services directly if you have specific questions or concerns about WMU's parking system.
