See the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions and details about course offerings below:
If you don’t already have a SLIG account with our new registration system, please be sure to set up your account with your student information BEFORE registration opens on July 22. You can set up your account at the SLIG registration page by clicking the link below. You can find our registration guide here.
If you find that your UGA discount of $50 has not been applied when you register, please go ahead and pay for your course. Then, email the SLIG Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know, and she will process a refund. Please note that you must be a UGA member at the time you register for your course.
Our new registration vendor (not SLIG) offers a payment protection plan, which is designed to reimburse a student who cancels unexpectedly for health reasons. The cost is a small percentage of your total order (excluding merchandise). Once paid, the cost for this plan cannot be refunded. You can add the protection plan when you register or afterwards. If desired, you must actively select this plan to add it to your order. Anyone submitting a claim under this plan will work with the company who processes claims (and not SLIG). More information on this plan can be found at https://help.regpack.com/hc/en-us/articles/5834361647131-Registrant-FAQ and https://help.regpack.com/hc/en-us/articles/5834350130587.
2nd Course Requests for SLIG Fall 2023 and Spring 2024
Some students are very interested in taking two courses during the SLIG Fall and Spring programs. The registration system will only permit a student to register for one course. Any request for a 2nd course must be made in writing to the SLIG Registrar at email@example.com. The Registrar and Director will work together on approving these requests, and students may be contacted for further information. If approved, the SLIG Registrar will register the student for the 2nd course. Approvals will only be considered after a sufficient amount of time passes after registration day to enable all prospective students to register for a 1st course. Approvals are set up to ensure that students have a great SLIG experience in light of the extra time required by taking a 2nd course.
Registration Help Desk Sessions
Our amazing tech support team, along with other SLIG committee members will be available at the help desk Saturday morning starting at 9:30 a.m. MDT. Details below. There is one session for SLIG and one for Spring.
