The SAGE Program (Seasoned Adults Growing Educationally) brings an exciting array of classes from PGCC (Prince George’s Community College) right to the Riderwood campus. The Summer trimester runs from June 11 through September 15. Course catalogs will be available at the front desk of clubhouses beginning May 14. The catalogs detail the list of classes and also give step-by-step instructions on how to join this wonderful program. New students need to PRE-register right away to get a Student ID, username and password (See instructions below). Once you do so, you are ready to join returning students to register for this term on May 31. You have three ways to register: online independently, online with assistance, or by mail.

Online registration begins May 31. A registration fee of $85 allows you to register for up to ten classes. See the directions in the catalog to register independently.

On-site registration assistance will be available on May 31, from 10:00 a.m. -12 noon and 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. in the Lakeside and Village Square computer labs. If you come to the registration help sessions, please bring your username, password, the list of classes you want to take, and a credit card to pay for your registration. The PGCC staff can accept checks but they take longer to process.

PRE-register if you have never taken a PGCC class You must PRE-register to get a Student ID number, username and password in order to register for classes on May 31. Please do this as soon as possible. Save the ID number, user name and password for future use. An instruction sheet on how to get the required information is available at the front desk of each clubhouse. If you need help to pre-register, come to the Lakeside Commons computer lab on Thursdays from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. and someone will assist you.

If you are a returning student, you should already have a username and password, but verify that they are still current. Go to, click on OWL LINK at the top of the page, and sign into your account. If everything is still current, you will see a “Welcome” screen. If there is a problem, call the PGCC Help Desk (301-546-0637).

Mail Registration: See the catalog for the mailing address and instructions. Please keep in mind though that mail registrations are the last to be processed.

Now, get ready to pick up a catalog. You can learn something new or deepen your understanding of a favorite subject!
