New Policy – Fall 2022

Prince George’s Community College has instituted a new policy about the charges for courses—both on Zoom and in person here at Riderwood will be $40 per class.

SAGE Registration Form

This is the familiar SAGE Registration Form that has appeared in the past and is used by residents who do not register online but want the PGCC staff to register for them.

Scholarships

Scholarships are available for the Fall trimester of the SAGE program. If you would like to take part of the scholarship, you must register and pay for at least two PGCC courses at $40 each to be eligible for a scholarship that will cover the cost of additional courses. You cannot apply for scholarship online.

Forms

This Fall, the course catalog for in-person Riderwood classes will include two documents that can only be submitted in paper form.

1.       SAGE Registration Form

2.       SAGE Scholarship Form

 

SAGE Scholarship

This new SAGE Scholarship Form will be used to list courses the student would like to request Scholarship for in addition to the two courses they have paid.

Students have THREE options:

1.       If you do not want the scholarship and can register online, you
can register and pay online for as many classes as you prefer.

2.       If you want the scholarship, you can register online for the top
two preferred courses and pay $80 via credit card. Drop off the SAGE Scholarship Form to a Community Resources Coordinator between September 12 -16.

3.       If you want the scholarship and cannot register online, you can fill out the SAGE Registration Form and list the top two preferred courses. In addition, fill out the SAGE Scholarship Form with the rest of the classes you would like to take and bring both forms and a check made out to PGCC for $80 to a Community Resources Coordinator between September 12 -16.

Processing the Forms

Community Resources Coordinators will date and time stamp the forms as they receive them and on registration day, September 22, PGCC staff will register according to the time and date stamps on the forms.

Please note: SAGE Scholarship Forms will only be processed after all SAGE Registration Forms have been processed. This will give all students a fair chance to get into their top requested classes.

Confirmations

Those who register using the SAGE Registration Form or the SAGE Scholarship Form will receive a confirmation in their cubby.
