Online Spring 2021 Class Schedule


STEP 1:  LOOK UP YOUR APPOINTMENT.  Check your Registration Appointment Date & Time in your student account and mark your calendar!  Follow these Instructions to locate your Appointment. To log in to MYSITE, you will need your Student ID # and your 4-digit PIN (or your username & password.) 

STEP 2:  HAVE YOUR TICKET #s READY.  Review the Spring 2021 Schedule and locate the classes you want.  Note: you can put a class in your "Cart" as a convenience, but that will not "reserve" a spot for you. The cart works as a holding place only.  It is recommended that you write down the 5-digit ticket number of each class you are interested in.  

STEP 3:  WHEN YOUR APPOINTMENT BEGINS.  When your Registration Appointment time begins you will have access to Registration through your MYSITE portal.  PRINT and carefully FOLLOW the Step-by-Step Registration Guide

After you've enrolled, your class(es) will appear in your CANVAS Account within 48 hours. Unless the semester has already begun, the class will be stored under All Courses and then further down, under "Future Enrollments."  It will become active once the semester begins (or sooner if the instructor has set an earlier date.) 

STEP 4:  PREPARE BEFORE CLASSES START (January 19).   Click on the Canvas Instruction Guide and read it through!  Become familiar with this program. Canvas is the online platform the college and therefore, the Emeritus Institute, is using to keep our classes alive and thriving!  Be ready and get to know your way around CANVAS before the first day of class!
