Registering online is the quickest, most efficient way to register and to reserve your spot. After you register, the non-refundable reservation fee of $100 per child is due within 5 business days by mail. Please download and print the Registration Form and mail it to Global Connect Forum (address: Global Connect Forum, 276 West Main Street, 11B, Northborough, MA 01532) together with a check for the $100 Registration Fee.

We will continue to accept registrations for all groups until a group is full. After that point, you may elect to put your child on a wait list. When possible, we will open extra groups for the popular languages. If you have missed the application deadline, please contact us at INFO@GCF-MA.COM to check for availability; we may still be able to accept students until a class is full.
Once the online form has been submitted you will soon receive a confirmation email indicating that your child is registered, so please provide an accurate email address so that we may correspond with you about program information. Please allow ten business days for paper registrations to be sent and processed. We will reply with an email confirmation once your payment is processed.
While we aim to ensure accuracy with all our correspondences, there are many factors that could prevent us successfully emailing you. Email will be our primary means of communication regarding details and reminders about the program. If you do not receive the expected confirmation email or other correspondence from us, please contact INFO@GCF-MA.COM
While unfortunate, sometimes cancellations are unavoidable. Cancellations are permitted until June 1, 2018, but the $100 reservation (per child) fee will not be refunded. There are no refunds for cancellations received after June 1, unless approved by the program director.
If minimum enrollments for any of the language programs are not met, participants will have the option of transferring to a different language specialty, usually their second choice for language. If the entire experience is under-enrolled or there are other unforeseen circumstances and the session is cancelled, then a full refund may be issued or a different session offered.
