  • Registration Deadline Just a reminder that the deadline to register with EF is this Friday!  If you have not registered with EF by Friday, you may lose your spot on the trip!  Directions for how to register were e-mailed a few weeks ago (and if you applied last week, they'll be on their way today).If you have questions about the payment process or available plans, go to the Payment tab of the website.  Please note that all payments are done through the tour company, not the schools, so most questions can be answered by EF.If you haven't received instructions to register by tomorrow, please let us know!
