Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get credit for INW\A courses?
By default, the INW\A classes are non-credit courses. If you’d like to have credits transcribed please bring $40.00 ($10.00 for each credit) to your first INW\A class on August 12. We recommend paying with a check. You will be asked to fill out a form to accompany your payment. Your payment and form will then be delivered to SOU Enrollment Services for the transcription process to be completed. Enrollment Services can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org, 541.552.6614.

How do I get a parking permit for the week of the conference?
Please be advised that while there are places to park around SOU that do not require a permit, they are generally located on the periphery of the campus (which is fine, if you're feeling frugal and don't mind the walk). If you are interested in purchasing a parking permit for the week of the INW\A conference, please visit the Enrollment Services Center located in Britt Hall. Mention that you would like to purchase 'a weekly permit for the Institute of New Writing' and they will enter your information into the parking system and issue you a temporary pass. The cost for a weekly parking permit is $29.00.
