Frequently Asked Questions
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
How much does a 24PearlStreet workshop cost?
One-week workshops cost $400, four-week workshops cost $500, and eight-week workshops cost $600. A $25 registration fee is added to every tuition payment. Payment plans are available.
Are there deadlines for registering for 24PearlStreet's online workshops?
There are no deadlines for registration; sometimes the instructor will even allow a student to join a class in progress. But we encourage you to register early. We accept registrations on a rolling basis. Once the class is full, registration for the class is closed. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, you may register for a class that is already full. You will be notified if space becomes available.
How much time will I need to commit to my online class?
All our course work is designed for busy working folks, with no live component. 1-week intensives have deadlines and interactions on the blog every day, and some students choose to dedicate time away from work or other obligations to immerse themselves in the course. On the other hand, many students balance their normal routines with their coursework. It's entirely a matter of personal preference.
What's the difference between the 1, 4, and 8 week classes?
None of our classes require a live component. The biggest difference between 1-week intensives, 4-week workshops, and 8-week studios is the level of intensity. 1-week intensives have deadlines and interaction every day, and include a one-on-one component between you and the instructor after the class is over. The 4-week workshops have a few interactions and deadlines a week, and 8-week studios have a couple interactions and deadlines a week.
Does 24PearlSteet offer any scholarships?
Yes! Our scholarship application will be made available again in January. We are currently focusing on applications we have already received.
