You can move around the Student Center in many ways. There are often several different ways to access a screen or complete a task. These job aids provide you with a recommended method of performing a task. Once you get familiar with the Student Center, you will find the way that best suits you.

Please note: the following instructions assume that you are starting at the Student Center.

Some sections have, in addition to quick-links, drop-downs that contain all the options related to the section — including those with quick-links.

Example of a drop-down menu on the Student Center page, highlighted on the right-hand menu

For example, the Academics section has a drop-down with twelve options. These are all of the Academics-related options available to you. To choose an option, select it from the list and click Forward arrow.

Also, at the top and bottom of most pages, you will see a go to … drop-down. This can be useful if you want to go back to the Student Center at any time.

Never use your browser's back button. This may cause you to lose information that you have just entered!

In addition to quick links and drop-downs, there may be other ways to get to the option or task you want to perform.

The Search for Classes button on the top-right corner, as well as the Enrollment Shopping Cart link at the bottom of the Student Center page

For example:

  • Clicking enrolment shopping cart ► will take you to the same place as the Shopping Cart quick-link.
  • Clicking the Search for Classes button will take you to the same place as the Search quick link.

If you are viewing or printing a report such as an Account Statement, you will need to make sure that the pop-up blocker is turned off! Otherwise, the report may not display successfully.

Some of the most complex pages have a link that you can click to get help with interpreting what you see on the page.
