CIRTL’s Fall Courses Open for Registration

CIRTL’s fall 2017 cross-Network courses are open for registration now through September 25! All our courses have enrollment caps, so registration does not guarantee enrollment. Anyone can register, but STEM/SBE grad students and postdocs from CIRTL institutions receive priority when a course exceeds its cap. You’ll need an account on our website to register, and we’ll refer to the institution, discipline, and role listed in your profile to help determine your registration priority.

Students who register by Monday, September 18 (our early bird deadline) will be notified of their enrollment status by September 20. Students who register after the 19th will be notified of their enrollment status by September 27.
