The SAGE Program (Seasoned Adults Growing Educationally) brings an exciting array of non-credit classes from PGCC (Prince George’s Community College) right to the Riderwood campus. The Fall 2019 trimester runs from October 7, 2019, through January 25, 2020. Course catalogs are available at the front desks of clubhouses beginning Monday, September 16. 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 obtain a user name and password right away (See instructions below). Once you do so, you are ready to join returning students to register for this term on September 26. You have three ways to register: online independently, online with assistance, or by mail.
If you have never taken a PGCC class, you must obtain a Student ID number, user name, and password before registration, to sign up for classes on September 26. 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 getting a user name and password, come to the Town Center Media Lounge on Thursdays from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. and someone will assist you.
Online registration begins on September 26. 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 September 26, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. in the Village Square computer lab and Town Center Celebrations Room. If you come to the registration help sessions, please bring your user name, password, the list of classes you want to take, and a check AND a credit card to pay for your registration.
If you are a returning student, you should already have a user name and password, but VERIFY that they are still current. You may do this by attending our User Name and Password Checks on September 19 from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. in all dining lounges. Once your user name and password are verified, you will receive a blue card. Please bring this card to the registration help sessions to help make registration day go faster! Alternatively, you may go to http://www.pgcc.edu, click on OWL LINK at the top of the page, and log in to your account. If everything is still current, you will see a screen that says “Welcome [your name]” at the left. 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!
