It’s almost time to register for Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) SAGE Spring trimester courses. Spring courses run from February 13th through May 26th, 2017. Catalogs for the Spring trimester are available at the front desks. On-site registration assistance is one day only on Tuesday, February 7th from 10am-5pm (with a break from 12:00 pm-1:00 pm) in both the Lakeside and Village Square Computer Labs. A registration fee of $75 allows you to take up to 10 courses. Online registration opens on the same day, Tuesday, February 7th.
The first section of the catalog provides complete instructions for registration. Most importantly, if you have never taken a PGCC class, you first need to get a PGCC Student ID number, and after that a username and password to register. Instructions are in the catalog. If you are a returning student, you already have these, but you should verify that they are still current by going to Owl Link and signing into your account. If they are, you will get a “Welcome” screen. If they do not work, you should call the PGCC Help Desk (301-546-0637).
HELP IS AVAILABLE! If you need help getting a username and password, bring your PGCC Student ID number to the Lakeside Commons Computer Lab on Thursdays from 3:15 to 4:15 or the Village Square Lab on Fridays from 3:45 to 4:45, and someone will assist you.
Once you have a username and password, you can register yourself online, or PGCC and Riderwood volunteers will help you register on February 7th in both computer labs. Payment is by credit card if you receive help registering at one of the computer labs. If you need to pay by check, only the PGCC representatives onsite can process checks. Another option to get registered is the to drop off a check and the completed registration form found in the catalog to Amy Holzer, Community Resources Coordinator in Town Center, between January 23rd and February 6th. See the catalog for details.
