How to Register


Register via the Vision Resource Center (VRC) to get credit on your transcript.  Choose the sessions you plan to attend.   It is only one link to register and you can choose your breakout sessions the day of the event.  

  1. In a new tab or browser window, log into the SMCCCD Portal with your SMCCCD credentials and click the Vision Resource Center tile. (Do not skip Step 1)
  2. On the Schedule page, review the list of workshops and select ONE workshop for each Block.
  3. Click the "Register" button once to open the calendar of events for the Adjunct Symposium.
  4. When you click on the "Register" button, you will be directed to the VRC page with a calendar of events for the Adjunct Symposium (you may have to sign into the SMCCD portal if you skipped Step 1- use the same login as your email).
  5. Select each workshop your wish to attend, including meals. Choose the red "Request" button for each workshop.
  6. After you register for each workshop, you should receive a confirmation email from the Vision Resource Center with an Outlook invitation for that time. If you don't see the confirmation in your inbox, check your Junk folder. You can also look at your VRC Transcript to verify which workshops you have added.
  7. If you change your mind and want to select a different workshop, that's totally fine. Just go to your Transcript in the VRC and, next to the workshop you no longer wish to attend, just select "Withdraw."
  8. You can find all the room numbers here on the Schedule page on the day of the event or before.
