Prior to the Pandemic, online registration worked one of two ways:
- Registering students from a district office kiosk
- Registering students from a home computer
Because of Covid-19 and the challenges of face-to-face interaction, OnCourse has altered the In-office Registration setting, and changed it to a, Dual In-office AND Online Registration setting.
Now, if your district is set up to provide In-office Registration, you will automatically be converted to the Dual In-office AND Online Registration setting. This setting gives parents the option of either registering their children from a kiosk in a district office OR from a home computer.
Here's how it works:
To begin, parents will enter their first and last name, then they have the option of using a six digit registration code OR their email address to register their child.
If guardians come into the district office, they can either use the six-digit registration code provided by their school OR they can use their email address. One or the other will start the registration session.
This also works from a home computer. Parents have the option of logging in with either their email address OR the access code. (The access code must be emailed to the parents for them to use it from a home computer.)
* OnCourse recommends that if a guardian has an email, they should always include it. Including an email makes it much easier for districts to keep track of submissions.
