WHO: Gavilan College students
WHAT: Can now register for classes, add or drop classes, look for open
class sections, and run unofficial transcripts with OLGA, the new
OnLine Gavilan Access system quietly rolled out last week. "We wanted
to make sure it was working well and easy to use before we publicized
it" said John Pruitt, Vice President of Student Services. "As it is, a
number of students found it on our website and found it easy to use."
In the first four days of operation, 100 students had used OLGA to
register online, and close to 500 had used it to check for open
sections or look up their class schedules. Pruitt predicts that
increasing numbers of students will choose to use online services
rather than the telephone or standing in line. "Once word is out, we
expect this to be a very popular way for students to access Admissions
and Records services."
WHERE: Access OLGA at www.gavilan.edu.
WHEN: OLGA's hours of operation are 8 a.m. - 10 p.m., 7 days per week,
however there is no help desk service available on weekends.
WHY: OLGA makes registration and other services easy and convenient.
Although most Fall semester classes started September 5, there are
still a number of Late-Start classes that will begin in September,
October, and November. Late-Start class listings are available at
