How to apply


There are two registration periods: About two weeks before the start of each semester, you will receive an e-mail asking you to e-mail your pre-registration of courses you wish to attend, based on the course information available at the ICS website by that time. You will then be required to confirm or amend your course selection during the third week of the semester. No changes in registration are permitted after that time.
