Accounts & Registration


Please make sure you have the following completed BEFORE you arrive for residency:



1) Activate your Utica College Email, Banner Web/network accounts



(These accounts will use the same username and password. Banner Web is used for course registration, checking grades, and a number of other administrative functions.)

2) Register for Courses



New Students
You should register for PHT 701. You will also be prompted to add PHT 995, which is simply a place-holder for the residency itself. It is not an additional course. Remember, you will need full payment, a valid FAFSA on file at UC, or veterans benefits in place at time of registration.

3) Log into ANGEL



ANGEL is Utica College's learning management system and where you will find your course content. You will not be able to activate your ANGEL account until you have successfully registered for your first course. Shortly after you are registered (typically within 1 hour) you will receive an auto-generated e-mail to your Utica College email account. If you don't, be sure to check your SPAM folder. This email will contain your username for ANGEL and a temporary password. You will be required to change your password on your first login to ANGEL.

If you do not see your courses in Angel chances are you have a payment discrepancy. Please visit the secure online payment site to make payment.

Each residency student is required to bring a laptop with them to the residency with a power cord. The laptop must also have Microsoft Word installed. 

We will provide internet access but you must also bring an ethernet cable with you. IT support will be available during the residency.
