After You Have Registered for an Online Course

Your registration is listed as "pending" until it is reviewed and processed by Continuing Ed's Enrollment Services staff. This involves verifying your academic record, updating your information, and checking for holds. Registrations are processed the next business day; two business days may be required during busy times. Within 24 hours after your registration is processed, a confirmation email is automatically sent to all your email addresses on record. That email sometimes get filtered as spam, though, so check your spam and quarantine folders.

Websites You Will Need:

Your Course Information: You can expect to receive a Welcome Letter with your course information on the Friday before classes begin. This message will be sent to the e-mail address that is connected to your eID (see below).

Please be sure to read all information contained in the Welcome Letter.

Proctors for Exams/Quizzes: Proctor agreements are required for many of our classes. Your Welcome Letter will contain information on whether or not you will need a proctor for your course. If you wish, you may begin locating a proctor for your course using these guidelines:

  1. Proctors may be:  college or university testing center representatives, military educators, pastors or ministers, continuing education officers, librarians, certified school principals or guidance counselors.  Company HR personnel may be allowed, with additional information required via the proctor form. These individuals must not be related to you.
  2. Proctors may not be:  related to the student in any way; or fellow students, subordinates of the student, co-workers, peers, neighbors, friends, colleagues, school teachers.
