Crappie University consists of a full 8-hour curriculum, composed of four classes of 2-hours each, of classroom instruction taught by experts according to their respective specialties around specific crappie-fishing subject matter as identified in session details.
Usually the minimum age for enrollment is 18, however age restrictions may vary by site location. Check directly with the site of interest if you have younger individual(s) interested in attending. The enrollment fee of $89 is the same for all ages.
Just like with any Continuing Education class, each university/college handles its own class registration process. Contact information for each school can be found on the schedule.
It is to your advantage to enroll in advance of the first session so that you can assure yourself a seat (we have experienced “sold out” venues), and then all you have to do is check-in upon arrival. However, some sites do allow on-site enrollment and others do not. Check directly with your site of interest regarding this option.
Crappie University benefits crappie anglers of every level as its curriculum and instruction cover a diverse range of topics. (See schedule for contact information to obtain specific class details.)
No, this is an accredited university/college program and the full registration fee applies regardless of how many classes you attend. Once you’ve enrolled and paid, you do have the option of attending particular Crappie University classes of preference, but you’ll miss a lot if you don’t attend all.

Absolutely. Crappie University lessons are taught by national instructors familiar with the latest knowledge and techniques to benefit any angler, as well as by crappie experts that are personally familiar with your local fishing waters and best crappie-fishing techniques for them.
