How to Register

Kirkland Arts Center is proud to introduce our new registration system with GoSignMeUp. After many fruitful years with Active Networks, we bid them goodbye. With GMSU you will find a clean listing of classes, slick searches, easy navigation and a shopping cart that steers you quickly through the payment process.
To get to our registration page at GoSignMeUp click on this url: You will be sent to the GSMU home page where you find class listings that can be sorted by the header, a search bar at the top of the page, and a menu on the left to guide you through class options. Oh… don’t forget about the calendar option at the top on the right!
 Returning students: you do not need to create a new account but you are required to create a new password.  Go to the login button, type in firstname.lastname for the “Username” and select “I don’t know my password”.  A new password will be sent to your email address.  Use that password login to your account.  Double check the information in your account since data may have been dropped or is simply outdated.
You are still welcome to register on mail, phone and in person with KAC Education office (see our hours below). We are always ready to take your call, help guide you through choosing a class and take your registration and payment.
