The Continuing Education Committee is excited to announce that the Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) fall trimester catalog will be available on Monday, September 11. The catalog may be picked up at the front desk of Riderwood clubhouses.
Online registration for the SAGE program (Seasoned Adults Growing Educationally) is scheduled for Wednesday, September 20. The fall trimester starts on Monday, October 2, and ends January 27. Complete registration instructions will be in the catalog. In addition, a registration fee of $85 allows you to take up to 10 classes. This is a slight increase from previous fees. Credit cards are preferred. Checks are accepted, but take longer to process. Please be certain that your selected classes do not overlap.
To take PGCC classes, you must have a student ID number, username, and password to register. If you are a returning student, you should have these. You are encouraged to verify that these are still valid prior to registration by going to Owl Link on the PGCC website and signing in to your account. If the account is current, you will see a welcome screen. If there is an issue, please call PGCC at (301) 546-0637.
If you need help with registering, please come to the Registration Help Sessions on September 20 from 10:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Lakeside Commons and Village Square computer labs. Be sure to bring your credit card and student ID number, username and password.
If you need help in getting a username and password, bring your PGCC student ID number to the Lakeside Commons computer lab from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. on Thursdays or to the Village Square computer lab from 3:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. on Fridays and someone will assist you.
This year, PGCC is also going to offer a free workshop to show residents how to register online! SAGE offers registration assistance at Riderwood each trimester. But even if you take advantage of that opportunity, you may discover that your favorite classes are already full when it’s your turn to register! That’s because your friends are registering from the comfort of their own homes! In this technology-driven world, online registration is the best way to get registered fast, get confirmation of your classes and pay easily with your credit card – and you can do it in your pajamas!
Learn how to register online for SAGE classes on Thursday, September 14 at the Lakeside Commons computer lab. Workshops are at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 2 p.m. Please call SAGE today at (301) 546.0923 to sign up. Please bring your username and password in order to participate in this workshop.
Riderwood registration opens Wednesday, September 20. SAGE staff will be on-site to assist. You are encouraged to refer to the PGCC catalog for complete registration instructions.
