What to do and expect once you have confirmed your admission to ESR:

  • We have assigned an advisor to confer with you about classes. You will get an e-mail of introduction in the next week or so. Please review this course schedule before meeting with your advisor. You can review the Academic Calendar as well.

  • Seminary Computer Services will send you e-mails with the usernames and passwords required to access Zimbra (email), Banner Self-Service (registration system), and Moodle (contains course syllabi, as well as the websites for online courses). This may take 3 days to complete.  If you have not received the automated e-mail within 3 days, please check your spam folder.

  • You will need to register in Banner before you will be able to access your courses in Moodle; Moodle is being updated over the summer so you may not be able to access it until mid-July.
