FAQs

Are there ID requirements?

  • YES. Students, faculty and staff must bring a valid Panther ID to the workshop. Driver’s license, Jag cards, or any other form ID can NOT be accepted. Not with Georgia State? See “I don’t have a PantherID” below.

I’m running late. Can I still attend?

  • It can take a few minutes to log in and get set-up to follow along in the workshop, so we ask folks to arrive early. However, to limit disruption we limit admission to 10 minutes after published start time. Too late? That happens – check back at http://technology.gsu.edu/training for the next workshop.

I don't have a PantherID. I'm not a student or university employee!

  • Not a problem! Our workshops are open to the public for a small fee.
  • The fee is $10 per session for attendees that are not actively part of GSU. Payment must be in the form of a check or money order (we cannot accept cash!). the checks or money orders should be made out to Georgia State University.
  • You’ll also need to fill out and bring this registration form with your payment (again, checks or money orders only).
  • Lastly you NEED to send an e-mail to PantherTech@gsu.edu at least 3 business days prior to the workshop so we may request a guest log in for our computers and wifi to ensure you can participate. These requests must be done in advance, so it’s vital you let us know beforehand!

I’d like to bring someone with me. Is that OK?

  • Yes! The more the merrier. If they are part of GSU they’ll just need to bring their PantherID with them. If they aren’t from GSU and wish to participate in the workshop see above – “I don’t have a PantherID.” If the person you are bringing just wants to sit in and not participate, unfortunately in this case they’ll have to wait outside the workshop. Please remember these workshops are here for the GSU community and paid participants.

I have other questions.

  • Write to us at PantherTech@gsu.edu


Thanks for your interest in our workshops!
