NOTICE: If you are a NEW or Former/RETURNING student, before enrolling in classes, you must first submit an Emeritus Student Application (one page only) to the Admissions & Records Office. Once you receive an email containing your new (or newly activated) student ID#, from Admissions, follow the Steps to Enrollment as listed below:      

Steps to Enrollment (through MySite)

STEP 1:  Find your Appointment to Register in your MySite account. Click here, for help to find your Appointment. If you need to Re-set you PIN, Click here for instructions.

STEP 2:  Search the online Schedule to find Class Ticket #s. Write down the 5-digit ticket # of each class you would like. Note: You can put classes in your "Cart" as a convenience, but that will not "reserve" a spot for you. The cart works as a holding place only. You must complete a registration session to secure enrollment in a class.

STEP 3:  Print the Step-by-Step Registration Guide and have it nearby!  To insure smooth sailing, have the Guide with you when you begin your registration. Use it to "walk" you through each of the 12 steps. If something doesn't make sense, look at the step in the Guide, that you are on, to find the solution!

STEP 4:  Register on (or soon after) the day & time of your Appointment to Register, in MySite.  All active students are given a specific appointment time. Your Registration Appointment is your start time, which means you will have access to the registration system from that time on. Tip: do not log into your MySite account until a minute or two past your Appointment, or the system will think you are too early. 

"Attend class" through Canvas:

STEP 5:  Familiarize yourself with Canvas, the program used for online classes. You are automatically assigned a Canvas account once you enroll in classes. Instructions for logging into Canvas are at the beginning of the Canvas Instruction Guide, followed by everything else you will need to navigate your online classes!
