SLIG Registration Series: Register for a Course

It's Saturday, July 7th, and you want to get your favorite course.  Here are the step by step directions. Read through the steps now to see just how easy it will be.  And we will see you in the enrollment reports!

Disclaimer: the personal information below and course selections made are not a reflection of personal selections or recommendations - they were created only for instructional purposes.

1. LOG IN.  Don't wait until 9:00 am (or 2:00 pm), Log in and be ready.


Once logged in, all you have to do is watch that countdown clock.  When the time comes, it will refresh on its own and present you with the magical green "Register Now" button.


2.  Click on "Register Now" to get to the registration form.

There are four short pages on this form.  You can navigate back and forth using the Previous and Next buttons if needed until you are satisfied that you have things as you want them.
Of course, we don't recommend that you dawdle about that process. Be prepared with your 1st, 2nd, 3rd choices of courses before you even log on, just in case your course is already full. Then you can quickly select one, wait list the others, and check out!


3. THE Page - Select your Course here
Unless you are a faculty member, or all the courses are full (heaven forbid) just select your course and click Next. Be quick about it. But DO make sure you select the right course - the form will only let you select one, but it won't make a correction if you accidentally click the wrong button.

Courses are listed in the same order they are posted online, with course numbers; full courses are grayed out and not selectable.


Tuition discounts for UGA members (or multiple program discounts for those attending both SLIG and Academy) will be applied on the final summary page - don't look for them here.


4. The Wait List Page
Got the course you Want? Click Next - no need to slow down to read this page. But if you need to wait list a course or two, courses are listed in the same order as on the courses page. Select one or more, and click Next.

MISSED something? Error message
No one wants to see this message.  But if for some odd reason, your button-clicking fingers aren't working, and you completely managed to skip selecting either a course to take or a course to wait-list, you will see this.  You will need to "close" the message, then use the previous button to get back to page 1 and try again.
5. The Requirements Page
I wish we didn't need to do this, but along with the GDPR privacy updates, we also felt compelled to make sure each participant has read and understands AND agrees to abide by the cancellation policy. If you haven't read it yet, please do so before you register (SLIG > Registration > Policies).

Additionally on this page, you have the opportunity to OPT-IN to receive invitations to special events hosted by third parties during SLIG and be included on a master participant list. You will automatically be included on the course list (also outlined in policies).


The top section is required; you can't get past this page without checking that box!  The rest is optional. If "Next" doesn't work, look for the small red "this field is required" message.


6. Summary - Almost done!
This page gives you a quick summary of everything you have selected. Please review carefully - obviously if you selected the wrong course, this would be the time to use those "previous" buttons to get back to page 1 and fix that.  Otherwise, click FINISH.

One note: If, for some strange reason, your UGA discount did not get applied, don't let it slow you down here. Instead, click finish, and then on the next page, exit and contact the registrar.  But you MUST "finish" to have a completed registration.

7. You GOT THE COURSE!
This page is golden. "Your registration has been recorded" - those are the magic words. You have a course; and other than payment, your registration is complete!


If you don't see a message like the one above, your course likely filled while you were "thinking" about those policies (a major reason to read them ahead of time). The good news, if you do get that "course filled" message at this location, is that you will automatically be wait-listed for the course you wanted, and taken back to the beginning to select another.  

Select Payment Method
Click on the Pay with PayPal link to pay with your PayPal account, or any credit card.  You don't need to have an account. 


If you don't have a PayPal account, just click on the "Pay with Debit or Credit Card" link at the bottom of that page to go to "Guest Payment"; your form will then look like this:

If you exit the PayPal process without paying, you will receive this notice. No problem; just return to your dashboard, and/or check your email (see below).



Check Email for Confirmation
Immediately after registering, and after making a later payment, you should receive a notice that looks like this.  It will come from registrar@slig.ugagenealogy.org. Please make sure we are on your safe senders list.  If you have paid in full, it will be noted; if not, it will include a link to PayPal and the address to make a check. You have 14 days for your payment to arrive at UGA before your seat is in danger of being cancelled.


8. Accessing Information After Registration
Ah, the ease of the dashboard: you can view everything from one location.  

Navigate to the dashboard by either clicking on the SLIG logo in the top left corner or selecting the green "SLIG Registration Dashboard" link provided with your "you have exited paypal" notice.

Here, you can see what programs/courses in which you have enrolled, view your wait listed courses, and view your registration confirmation with invoice or payments in detail.








Still have questions?  We are here to help.  

Contact us:  registrar@slig.ugagenealogy.org or 801-259-4172 ext. 2
Our hours during registration on Saturday are dedicated to you. On all other days, please note that our committee is made up of volunteers with other comitments beyond SLIG (is that even possible?!?). If you don't reach us, please leave a message.

I hope to "see you" online and on our enrollment list on Saturday.
