Create a welcoming registration process for community education

Your diverse offering of in-person and online classes in music, art, cooking, computer skills, wellness and more requires registration software built for ease of use. CourseStorm’s simple and powerful system keeps all your community education classes in one place, streamlining user registration and bolstering class size.

  • Online Registration

    We make it simple to register, so you have happy students and increased enrollments.

  • Credit Card Processing

    Built-in payment processing lets you start taking credit card payments right away. 

  • Mobile Registration

    Let your students register from anywhere and on any device — no app required.

  • Intuitive Administrative Tools

    View rosters, registration history, waiting lists, and send emails to an entire class at once. And you can have as many admin accounts as you need.

  • Customized Registration Forms

    One size does not fit all. From waivers and pricing adjustments to class-specific questions, we have you covered.

  • Powerful Marketing Tools

    Our automated marketing tools, like abandoned order reminders and personalized recommendations, help maximize your online class enrollments.

Circle of friends

So many classes are social occasions! With friends and family registration, it’s easy for students to add anyone they like to their circle of friends, making them a click away from registering for the class together. Even better, they can register for as many classes as they’d like at the same time.

And you’re sure to hear a resounding “Thank you!” from all of the families you cater to. With friends and family accounts, it’s easy to register the whole family for different activities, all in one fell swoop.

Only pay for what you use

CourseStorm is pay-as-you-go. Unlike other systems that take hundreds or thousands of dollars just to get off the ground, you’ll only pay when you’re using CourseStorm for registrations.

Let your students pay online and let us handle everything. Our quick financial approval process means you can start taking registrations right away. There’s no merchant account to set up and no bank to talk to. We deal with all the technical details, so you don’t have to. 

And, if your program offers mostly free classes, CourseStorm has flexible subscription options to meet your needs. It’s that simple.

Grow your program, reach more students

On average, programs using CourseStorm grow their online registrations by 20% in their first year. With our easy to use tools, you can spend more time working with people and less time working with computers, giving you the space to grow your program. We’ve even built tools like enrollment warnings and waiting lists to help get — and keep —your classes full. 

Effortless automated marketing included

Effortlessly promote your online classes with CourseStorm’s auto marketing emails. Advertise classes that might interest your students without any additional work. Our intelligent recommendation engine will send personalized recommendations to individual students based on their past registration history with your program. 

Plus, we’ll send reminders when class is about to begin and abandoned cart notifications when a student has forgotten to complete a transaction they started. 


Find more time in the day

We know you’d like to spend less time managing your program and more time growing it.

Complicated registration systems result in phone calls, in-person visits, and hard-to-track payments — all of which take focus and time. We know everyone needs more time, so we built CourseStorm to help make the most of yours.

Our streamlined system for admin includes exportable reports, student accounts, easy payment plans, and even email marketing tools. Plus, your instructors can manage and access their class information 24-7 and even email their student rosters using our unlimited instructor accounts.

Students can easily register online, update their personal information and password, manage their stored credit card, and see what classes they have registered for, anytime they want.
