Webtrac works similar to an Online Shop. Customers can always see the current availability of spots. Should you try to enroll in a class that is already filled a warning will appear on the screen. Alternatively you may also register for classes by calling Parent Central Services at 09662-83-2760. Our customer service representatives at PCS will be able to give you a current status regarding open slots as well.

5. Is there a waiting list form?

There is no waiting list form. Our classes are filled on a first come first serve basis with Priority given the currently enrolled student during the first 5 days of every enrollment period.

Yes. The fee schedule is based on duration and type of class. SKIES classes are as affordable as $10.00 per month and go as high as $200.00 per month. For a more information on duration and class fees please view our course catalog on Graf Webtract at https://webtrac.mwr.army.mil/webtrac/Grafenwoehrcyms.html

The Fee Schedule is based on type and duration of Class. Consequently, a class that meets twice a week for an hour each will have a higher cost then a class that meets once a week for a duration of 30 min.  Fees are based on a “4-weeks per month” instructional schedule and remain consistent for the duration of a school year. 90% of all instructional classes will require a monthly registration therefore customers can commit to as little as a month at a time.
