Q I wasn't able to register for a class?
A If you encounter a problem registering for a class, please contact us directly at 949-724-6610 so we may investigate and correct the error.
Some common errors include:
Incorrect or unmatching family PIN# or client ID#-Try to use the Forgot my password button to find out your numbers. If that doesn't work, you can email Quickreg@ci.irvine.ca.us requesting us to send the information to you. Please allow 1 business day. You may also call us directly at 949-724-6610 during business hours.
Class is not available for registration at this time This error may occur because this particular class may not be open for Online or Touch Tone registration. Directions should be explained in the description of the course.
Another reason for this error is that the class start date may have passed and some registrations cannot be processed through the automated systems. Please call 949-724-6610 for assistance.
Age requirement not met- The student must be the stated age at the start of the class to be enrolled. If the child is the right age but is still prevented from registering, it is possible that we have an incorrect birth date.

Residency doesn't match-We may have a conflict with a residency status and fees. Please call 949-724-6610 for clarification and allow us to correct.
Q Can I enroll at the first meeting?
A Due to the popularity of our programs, registration is required in advance. This is also necessary for quality control and fairness to those on the waiting list. Please note that automated registration (online or Touch-Tone) in some cases may not be accepted on the start date of a course or after the first meeting.
Q My child is not in the age range. Are there exceptions?
A For our children's programs, the age ranges are firm. Instructors are aware of the developmental needs of children and tailor specific classes to meet these needs. Allowing children that do not meet the requirements into a program could potentially cause distractions and lower the quality of the program for all participants.
Q If I miss a class, can I make it up?
A No. The class dates are as advertised. The City does not require the instructor to allow make-ups unless a class meeting is cancelled by the City or Instructor. In some cases the instructor may allow a make-up.
Q Can I speak to an instructor?
A Some instructors give permission to release a phone number or email. If an instructor does not give permission, we will call them on your behalf and ask that they return your call. Call program registration with your request at 949-724-6610 or send an email to Quickreg@ci.irvine.ca.us
Q Can I go to a class if I am on the wait list?
A No. You need to wait until contacted by the instructor or Program Registration staff to make payment before attending.
Q I do not live in Irvine, can I still sign up for classes and programs?
A Yes, however there is a $5 non-resident fee per participant, per course over $10; $10 fee for courses over $75.
