Universal Class

Thanks to the state Department of Libraries, patrons can now participate in Universal Class, which provides a wide range of online courses from business, to cooking, to computers, to social work. Though classes are not for college credit, they are led by a real instructor with whom you can communicate by e-mail. Courses allow you to proceed at your own pace, working on assignments anytime day or night. You have up to six months to complete a class, and can enroll in up to five classes at one time.

Here's a partial list of potential categories:

Getting Started
To get started, go to the Universal Class website. Once there, enter the full number on the back of your library card, with 1 exception - replace the first letter (P) with a number 2. If you have one of our new cards, your number already starts with a 2, so you are all set. Either way, your code should be 2VSN5 followed by 9 numbers and/or symbols.

On the next page, enter your registration information (and write down your password), and then select continue. Next you'll receive an email which contains a link to confirm your registration. Once you've completed that, you'll be able to log in and start looking for classes.

Once you have created an account, you can log in.

If you have any questions or problems, please call us at 802-264-5660.
