    Re: Enroll or Register

    just a student.

    I also would like to know the answer.

    my guess is:

    register - to join in order to be entitled to something; to formally inform: register in a hotel, register in/for a course, register a claim, register a complaint, register an opinion.

    enroll - to join in order to attend: enroll in a school, enroll in a course, enroll in a class, enroll in a plan.

    just a student.

    Re: Enroll or Register

    Pretty much. The idea of enrollling is associated with 'calling the roll' (in military contexts, roll-call) - calling a list of names to make sure everyone is present.
