How to register using SOLAR.
Registration Using SOLAR
Students will receive the log-in path in correspondence from the Admissions Office, along with an Activation PIN, upon admission to UW-Parkside. Registration will be done through SOLAR for any UW-Parkside competency set you plan to take during the designated self-enrollment timeframe. SOLAR will allow you to search, add, and drop competency sets.
As you use SOLAR, you will want to be aware that competency sets are referred to as “courses” and subscription periods are referred to as “terms.” Be sure to log out of SOLAR when you are done working in it.
