How Do I Get Started?

Registration Process

  • You will not be able to register for any of the SLPOnline courses until you have completed and submitted the SLPOnline Enrollment Form, an application for in-state tuition (if applicable), and transcripts for prerequisites (if applicable). Please fill out the two-page form completely.
  • Once all required forms are received, you will be sent an e-mail confirmation. A LancerNet ID, temporary password, and Longwood e-mail address will be issued by Information Technology Services (ITS). These will be sent via e-mail to the personal e-mail address you put on this enrollment form. Upon receipt of the ITS materials, you will be able to access the myLongwood system to register.
  • Transcripts may be submitted by fax (434.395.2750) or via e-mail (slponline@longwood.edu) if you have electronic copies. Scanned copies of official or unofficial transcripts are acceptable. (It is your responsibility to confirm receipt of all faxed items by calling 434.395.2380.)
  • Application for In State Tuition: This must be completed and emailed with the enrollment form if you are claiming entitlement to Virginia in-state tuition.
  • Once you have completed the SLPOnline Enrollment Form form please save it and send it as an e-mail attachment to the address below. Be sure to also send your application for in-state tuition and/or transcripts if applicable.  slponline@longwood.edu
  • To look up your courses, please visit the Course Search on the Registration Office website.  Courses are listed under the subject 'CSDS - Professional' (PCSD). 
  • IF your plans change after registering, please drop promptly.  These courses are in high demand and fill quickly.  Dropping promptly allows others to have the space.
  • Use Canvas to access your online course space.  You may begin attempting to access the course a few days early, but many instructors don't open the course until the day classes begin.
  • Need more information?  Review the SLP Online Guide (pdf)


Important Information Regarding Course Prerequisites

If you plan to take one of the following courses offered as part of the SLPOnline program, you must have completed the required prerequisites listed below.   

  • If the prerequisites were taken at Longwood, you will not need to submit proof of having the prerequisite.
  • If the prerequisites were NOT taken at Longwood, you will need to submit a transcript (unofficial or official) from the college where you took the prerequisite course.  This transcript will be evaluated by the SLPOnline program coordinator, Dr. Shannon Salley, to determine if you have the necessary coursework.  If the necessary coursework has been taken, an additional step must be completed by Dr. Salley to allow you to register for the course.  This ALL must be done prior to your access of myLongwood.com to register.
