Online Registration Agreement and Information Update

Once a year, students will need to complete a registration agreement and a personal information update online in order to register. The Registration Agreement provides additional information related to your enrollment at Garrett-Evangelical and serves as an electronic signature of your receipt of the Academic Handbook, which is linked electronically to the Registration Agreement.
 
The online Personal Information Update serves as a way for you to review and update the information we have on file for you, making it easier to spot any errors or typos that may have found their way into the database.
 
Each of these online forms must be completed once a year to continue to enroll as a student at Garrett-Evangelical. New students will complete the form during their first enrollment term and all students will complete the form each fall (or in the term they return to studies if they have been on leave).
 
To access the forms, students will login to myGETS and go to the Student page.  On the student page, select the Add/Drop courses link.  On the Add/Drop page, change the drop down menu at the top of the screen to the appropriate registration term (e.g., Fall 2015).  Links to both online resources should appear automatically.
 
Updates to student mailing address can be made at anytime by logging in to myGETS and then selecting the Personal Info link below your name.  Please be aware changes need only be submitted once and are reviewed at the start of each business day.  Not all changes can be accepted electronically (e.g., primary e-mail address and legal name cannot be changed electronically).
