    How to renew a membership 1

     HELPFUL HINTS FOR SPRING PRIORITY REGISTRATION!

    In the past, many students have asked about a check-list to get prepared for Priority Registration on February 25th at 10am. In conjunction with the SFPRD Registration Desk, the FOSAS office put together the following information:

    SUGGESTED CHECK-LIST PRE-SATURDAY:
     
    1) Practice logging-on to the registration site and signing-on to you福彩下载官网下载安装r account before Saturday to ensure you福彩下载官网下载安装r passwords are working, etc.  If there is an issue with you福彩下载官网下载安装r password, there is a link to have it resent/changed, etc. Here is the link to log-on:
    2) Ensure you福彩下载官网下载安装r membership is active. Once you福彩下载官网下载安装 sign-on, click the "My Account" option at the top of the screen. It will take you福彩下载官网下载安装 to you福彩下载官网下载安装r Account Options page and you福彩下载官网下载安装 should see you福彩下载官网下载安装r  Memberships/Passes and Usage link found under the Account Activity section. FOSAS Memberships are now renewed on-line. 
     
    3) Research classes/activities in advance vs. waiting until the morning of Priority Registration.  (Psst... make sure you福彩下载官网下载安装 are looking at the SPRING 2017 brochure!).
     
    4) Place desired classes in you福彩下载官网下载安装r Wish List.
     
    5) Line-up alternate options in case you福彩下载官网下载安装r first choice of activity fills.

    6) IMPORTANT: WAITING LIST INSTRUCTIONS:
    If you福彩下载官网下载安装 are placed on the waiting list automatically because the class is already full, you福彩下载官网下载安装 still need to proceed to checkout to complete the waiting list transaction.
     
     

      CLARIFICATION/REMINDERS FOR PRIORITY REGISTRATION:

    • The registration website is live all the time now (there is not a “registration preparation down time”) so clients can log-on any time. But the Registration Desk wouldn’t advise you福彩下载官网下载安装 logging-on until about 10 minutes before the start of 10am Priority Registration. As with any internet site, if a site is idle for a long period of time, it sometimes needs to be refreshed from you福彩下载官网下载安装r end. Sometimes people can get logged-out if they are idle for too long.
    • Seconds before 10am, if a client is viewing their Wish List, they should see a countdown till exactly 10am and be able to see the “wish list” button magically turn into an Add to Cart button. If at 10am they don’t see this, they should refresh their screen (CTRL + F5) (Command + R for Mac users).
    • It is recommended/definitely encouraged for students to register from 福彩下载官网下载安装 or from their mobile device if they want a better chance to get into a high-demand class. If you福彩下载官网下载安装 come to the studio to register on Saturday, remember the studio uses DSL internet, which is slower. We would recommend student register from 福彩下载官网下载安装/device.

     CLIENT SCENARIOS/QUESTIONS FROM THE PREVIOUS PRIORITY REGISTRATION
    WITH FOLLOW-UP INFORMATION/ADVICE FROM OUR SFRPD REGISTRATION DESK:

     

    1. Q. When looking for an activity to register – and one is signed-in…why is it necessary to reconfirm “who you福彩下载官网下载安装 are?" 

    A.You always have to choose the “participant” for the registration – you福彩下载官网下载安装 can also add a family member at that time to be able to register them if they are not on you福彩下载官网下载安装r account. You are not "confirming" who you福彩下载官网下载安装 are, you福彩下载官网下载安装 are just choosing who you福彩下载官网下载安装 want to register into the class/activity.


    2. Q. I had a Wish-List scenario that puzzled me: a class that had been on my Wish List evaporated from my Cart and was replaced with an “incomplete entry” message...even though I’d entered everything correctly.

    A. Any Incomplete entry or error messages means that the class was full when they clicked the button and they would go on the waiting list. Remember – there may be many people clicking the “add to cart” button at the exact same second, and the system has a limited number of slots to place registrations – it basically becomes random selection at that point. We would advise people wanting high-demand classes to have one or two backups ready. 


    3. Q. Let's say I have a first choice and it's full at the time I try to register for it. Is it better for me to take the time to "wait list" this class and then try my second choice or go try my second choice, etc.? 
    A. If an activity is full, we would go to our second choice first before doing waiting list option. 

    4. Q. A spinning icon appears after I have clicked "payment." What should I do?
    A. Let it spin; it may be that the credit card transaction is taking a few seconds. If it seems stuck, refresh screen and see if you福彩下载官网下载安装 can try to make payment.

    5. I've been asked to verify my credit card on file. Why does this happen and it seems some customers are asked to do so and others are not? 

    It shouldn’t be an issue because if they are at that point of payment, the spot is held for them. Once they add a class to their shopping cart, it’s held for at least 10 minutes.
     
    6. I have a FOSAS FAMILY membership and myself and another person want to register for the same class. If it's a high-demand class, is it better to have each of us sign-on to register on our own at the same time, vs. having one person try to register for both people?
    Yes, it might be faster.  That is you福彩下载官网下载安装r choice. Each person should have their own login and own password and can sign up for their class individually. Even though they share a family FOSAS membership and are on one “family” account, they have individual customer accounts. 

     7.  My membership does not need to be renewed for awhile. When does a reminder email get sent to me and what is the email address it comes from so I can look for it?
    A reminder to renew you福彩下载官网下载安装r FOSAS membership comes from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and will be sent approximately 30 days prior to expiration; Subject line reads: Friends of Sharon Art Membership Expiring

     UPDATED on 1/19/17:
