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 welcome to drop in to the tutoring sessions.
A half-price discount is offered to WMU students, and senior citizens (55 or above). WMU employees may participate in any class at no cost. However, some classes have "class fees" apart from the tuition cost, which all participants must pay. These are the only discounts that the Confucius Institute offers to participants.

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.
The following is contact information related to WMU Parking Services:
Phone Number: 269-387-4609
Address: 2507 West Michigan Avenue, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo MI, 49008 USA
Office Hours: Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
It is the responsibility of interested participants to become as familiar as possible with WMU's parking regulations.
Confucius Institute and its class instructors cannot obtain or provide parking passes or quarters for meters.
