Step-by-Step Registration Guide: Phase I

Below are the registration steps for Grandparents University® (GPU) 2020. Please note the following guidelines for the registration process:

  • All participants who register as a party will be placed in the same major. If you would like to register additional family members for a different major or different session, you will need to fill out a separate registration form after you have completed registration for your first party.
  • During registration, only use the red back button on the bottom of each registration page. Do not use the back button at the top of your browser window.
  • Phase one of registration includes field trips, optional activities, parking, group size, and housing and program fees only. All other information will be entered during phase two.
  • Once you get to the payment page, do not use the back button. If you need to make changes, complete the payment and then contact the GPU team.
