The Details

Preparation

Computer, browser & Internet connection are requirements for course registration. While many operating systems and browsers may work for course registration, having a computer with a current version of macOS or Windows and a popular web browser that is updated is strongly recommended. A fast, reliable Internet connection is preferred if available. On campus, the MiddleburyCollege Wi-Fi network is the fast, reliable, and readily accessible option that is fully supported by ITS. Please see our Wi-Fi documentation or reach out to the Helpdesk if you need assistance connecting prior to registration day. 

Please follow guidance from the Registrar for course registration preparation.

 

Day of registration

Reboot your computer:
Although this is not required, periodic computer reboots are recommended to keep things running smoothly.

 

Clear web browser cache & cookies:
Incomplete logout or an unattended timeout from a previous session may result in the sign-in error screens shown below. Clearing the cache and cookies from your web browser BEFORE registration can prevent unnecessary delays in getting signed in. We recommend that you clear cache/cookies in advance and/or if you encounter the sign-in errors below (rather than the normal Middlebury single sign-on).

Getting Help

For login and related technology issues the ITS Helpdesk opens shortly before registration begins to check email and respond to your calls (802-443-2200). Self help hints for many technology issues may be found at the Technology Client Portal where you may look up questions in our Knowledge Base and submit tickets based on the service you need help with. More about Helpdesk contact methods, the Technology Client Portal and open hours can be found on the Helpdesk website.
