ESI is an ever-changing institute connecting with students and faculty.
Please follow the steps below and fill out this contact form in order to join our amazing community of like-minded individuals and start your path of emerging knowledge with fellow/sister students and faculty.
Step 1: We would love to hear from you! This is one of the best first steps to becoming a student at Emergent Studies Institute. Contacting our Director of Admissions or academic advisers allows us the opportunity to get to know you better and help you achieve the goals you wish to accomplish out in the world. We are here to answer any questions you might have about our school, courses, faculty, or mission. Please contact us, and an Emergent Education Team representative will assist you and answer any questions you may have about the application process.
Step 2: Fill out our Online Registration form.
Step 3: You should receive an email back very quickly, within 1 to 2 business days, that your application has been submitted and that you have started down the process of becoming a student. You will then be contacted by an Emergent Education Team representative who will connect with you and walk you through the process. Once you have decided which course or program to embark upon, there will be a one-time registration fee. We will send you an invoice for the one-time fee of $35 (paid through PayPal), or you can use the link at the bottom of the registration page to pay directly online. We will request any additional documents required to finish your registration at that time. Please note that if you are only taking an enrichment course, your registration process should be a very fast and simple process.
Step 4: Once you have been accepted into the course or program you’ve applied for, you will be sent a PayPal invoice from Haven Int., our non-profit partner and mother organization, for the remainder of your balance depending on how many courses you are taking. Payments may be made either in full or in two payments.
Step 5: Once payment has been confirmed, you will need to wait a few days before class starts and watch for an email from the “Haven International Team.” This email will contain a link where you will be assigned a new email address (you will use this as your “username”) as a student. (Example: firstname.lastname@example.org) You will also be sent a back-up email from the Emergent Education Team. You will need to follow any steps Google asks you to and accept any terms. This email account will be your main way of communicating with faculty and students within the institution. This email address also allows access into Google Classroom, Hangouts, Drive, etc. When asked to sign in again, please use the ENTIRE username (email@example.com) and temporary password you are provided in the email from the Haven International Team. The first thing it will ask you to do is create a new password. (If you forget your password please let your faculty member know, and we will send you a password reset.)
Step 6: Once your email has been registered you should be able to access Google Classroom automatically.
Additional Devices: You also may want to download the Google Classroom plug-in for additional devices, such as your phone or tablet. Visit the iTunes Store for your Mac Tablets or iPhone, or Google Play Store for your Android phone or tablets. Each device will need to have the Google Classroom Plug-in in order for you to use Classroom on that device. These plug-ins will ask you for a class code, a 6-digit code, usually lowercase letter and numbers (Example: ghj3ht). This code will be supplied the first day of class from your faculty members first email. Even if you can log in to Classroom through Chrome, you will still need this code for your other devices. (You MUST have completed your email registration AND signed in with your new email address before you will be able to access Classroom.)
Step 7: Once you have accessed classroom you will need to “Join your Class”. In order to do that you will need to click on the large plus sign (+) on the upper right hand corner and enter your class code. Your faculty member will send you an email welcoming you to the class and give you this class code. Google Classroom may ask you for a class code, a 6-digit code, usually lowercase letter and numbers (Example: ghj3ht) and to enter the class “As a Student”. This is very important. Please make sure you select “Student” from the options, if there is an option.
Step 8: If you can, take some time the first week of class to explore Google Classroom and how it works. Connect all of the devices that you want to use and maybe watch a video tutorial on Google Classroom. It will be a transparent look at how you as a student and our faculty members use Google Classroom to bring you just a small hint of the transformative education we have here at ESI.
