WebCT Instructions for
Computer Science Graduate Students


The Graduate College and Graduate Registrar at UNI now process all administrative forms such as programs of study and student requests on-line, using WebCT. The student will use the WebCT site to initiate some action, and the appropriate administrative person, such as the graduate coordinator or department head, is then notified by e-mail. All approvals are done using WebCT as well.

This page intends to help you get started with this process. If you have any questions, concerns, or problems, please contact me.


Your WebCT ID

Your WebCT ID is the same as your UNI username. If you do not know your UNI username, go to https://access.uni.edu/phone/ and search the UNI directory for your name. Select the "More info" link to display your username.

Your WebCT Password
