How to Select and Register for Your Online Continuing Education Class

Once you have registered for your class either through Triton’s website or by calling (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3500, you must let the online classroom know you are ready to start your class. 1. Go to www.ed2go.com/triton.

Most of our online offerings have monthly start dates. To make sure you register for the correct online class section, just follow these simple steps.

Note the registration code for this class, EDU C42. Determine what month you would like to begin, either Jan. 17, Feb. 14, March 14 or April 11.

For a Feb. 14 start you would add the section code 392. For a March 14 start you would add the section code 393. For a April 11 start you would add the section code 394. So if you wanted to take GMAT Preparation starting on Jan. 17, you would register for class EDU C42 391.

3. Enter the name of the course that you want to access. 4. Proceed through the next steps, adding your name, password and contact information.

For example, let’s assume you want to register for GMAT Preparation on Page 44.

For an Jan. 17 start you would add the section code 391.

2. Select COURSES from the navigation menu at the top of the page.

5. When prompted, select “Already Paid” and complete the process. 6. You are now ready to go through the orientation process and start your class on the appropriate date. 7. Please call Triton College to make your payment for the course. 8. Registration is a two-step process — please make sure to call Triton College to verify payment of your Ed2Go course.
