Online and Extended Studies

Accounts & Registration 

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


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.)


Register for Courses


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. 


Log into ENGAGE

ENGAGE is Utica College's learning management system and where you will find your course content. You will not be able to activate your ENGAGE 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. Your log-in information for ENGAGE is the same as your UC email username and password.

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

4) Prepare Your Laptop 

Each residency student is required to bring a laptop with them to the residency with a power cord, Ethernet cable, and have Microsoft Word installed. 

We will provide internet access but you must bring the Ethernet cable with you. IT support will be available during the residency. Please download either Firefox or Internet Explorer as you will need to access ENGAGE through one of these browsers. Mac OSX users please download Firefox for Mac. IT assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1.866.264.1537.
