Help for Beginners to the web.
There are "Help Buttons" on many of this websites pages, which pop open instructional boxes appropriate to the pages they're on. The explanations are not intended for those who use the web easily. These instructions are intended to encourage those who are not confident clicking around and committing to actions on the web.  We are a school, after all, and we hope to create an experience on our own website that will transfer to use of  the web in general for those who did not previously have access because they did not have a successful experience.
To pause the photos from rotating in the slideshow at the top-middle of the page, just pause your mouse on top of the picture.  Move the mouse off and the rotation will begin again.  The stop and start are slightly delayed.  You can also change photos by clicking on the little dots at the bottom, or on the arrows at the middle of either side.
Overview of the registration process
In a grocery store, you look around, put the things you want in a shopping cart, and go to the checkout counter to finalize your purchase.  On the way to check out, you may change your mind about some of the items you put in the cart and take them out.
On this website, the registration process is the same.  You put classes in a cart, take them out, if you change your mind, and then checkout or register.  On this website, your registration is complete without immediate payment.  You must pay within one week to reserve your spot. You can pay immediately on the University's secure server (we'll take you there with a click), with a check by mail, with a credit card by mail, or at the office with credit card, check, or even cash.
You do not need to use this website for class registration.  As always, you can fill out the registration form in the catalog that was mailed to you or come to the office and register in person.  In these cases, we will add your  registration to the other registrations that are on the web, as if you had done it yourself.
