In order to maintain social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting registrations for this face-to-face I course. At this time, the maximum number of students in Spring 2021 will be 11 and masks will be required in class. Please add your name to the waiting list if/when the 11 course slots are filled.

Effective July 15, 2020, USG institutions, including UWG, will require all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to wear an appropriate face covering while inside campus facilities/buildings where six feet of social distancing may not always be possible. Face covering use will be in addition to, and is not a substitute for, social distancing. Anyone not using a face covering when required will be asked to wear one or must leave the area. Repeated refusal to comply with the requirement may result in discipline through the applicable conduct code for faculty, staff, or students. Reasonable accommodations may be made for those who are unable to wear a face covering for documented health reasons. Our goal with all guidelines and practices is to build a culture of mutual respect among members of the UWG community.

UWG Employees, please select the billing option and contact Continuing Education for assistance with an internal transfer if your department will be paying for your registration.
