A limited number of stipends are available for those not receiving a district stipend/credits. Return the request form by July 12 if you are a requesting a stipend from CollegeNow. You can type all of the necessary information on the form; however, we will need your actual signature, not a typed signature in order to process the payment. This form may be emailed, faxed, or mailed to CollegeNow.

Using MyLearningPlan

CollegeNow professional development is co-sponsored by TST BOCES School Improvement Services and utilizes their MyLearningPlan system for tracking registration and completion.

Register for CollegeNow Workshops via MyLearningPlan. Even if your district is outside the TST region and uses a different MyLearningPlan catalog, you must register within the TST BOCES catalog because CollegeNow workshops are not listed in other catalogs.

Logging in to MyLearningPlan

Logging into MyLearningPlan requires a username and password. If this is your first time using MyLearningPlan, contact your district's MyLearningPlan administrator to obtain your username. If your district does not participate in MyLearningPlan, you may create your own account at the time of registration by clicking on "I'm a New User" after enrolling in your activities. If you do not remember your username or password, click Login Help

Dropping or Changing Registrations

To change your workshops at the Conference, log in to MyLearningPlan, then click on "Change my Sessions" in the Actions section to select new options. If you cannot attend, you will need to log into MyLearningPlan, click on the activity, and then click the "Drop" link in the Actions section near the bottom; this notifies CollegeNow that you cannot attend and frees up the seat for another.

Obtaining a Certificate of Completion

In order to obtain a certificate of completion for a workshop you attended, Log in to MyLearningPlan. Once your activity is recorded as Completed (on the Requests screen or your Portfolio), you can click on the activity, and then click on "Print Certificate" in the Actions section. The certificate is available for printing as a PDF only.
