Attention: New GIS Certificate Program Enrollment Policy

Due to COVID-19 schedule changes, we ask you to enroll in GIS Certificate Program courses no later than two weeks prior to the class start date and pay within five days after enrolling to prevent being dropped. Please note that students need to have at minimum: access to their own computer, a reliable internet connection, an internet browser, and ability to use Zoom. In the two weeks preceding the class, students are expected to familiarize themselves with Zoom and Labspace (for access to ArcGIS Pro / ArcMap). This new policy is meant to ensure that:

  • Instructors have enough time to request Labspace access for themselves and all of their students
  • IGISc staff coupled with AT / ESRI technical support are able to offer additional scheduled troubleshooting support sessions for enrolled students
    • Including the Citrix Receiver for Labspace / Zoom and ArcGIS Pro / ArcMap and other required software
  • Students have the option of troubleshooting support that will help them decide before the class starts whether they actually have the adequate software needed to successfully complete a class
