Friends University offers graduate level workshops across a number of content areas and grade levels, supporting the needs of educators seeking re-licensure opportunities, salary advancement and professional development. Workshops also provide elective options for students enrolled in the Master of Education in Teaching and Learning degree (formerly Master of Arts in Teaching).
You may now enroll and pay for workshops online! Online enrollment is easy, with all necessary information needed to register and pay provided in these step-by-step instructions. Complete policy information is located in the current brochure.
Friends University Teacher Education Workshops will be hosting a conference called 2016 Ignite in June. For more information, visit the Ignite page.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I change the PIN that has been assigned to me by the IT department?
Yes! Once you have received your user identification and pin number you may change your PIN to better suit your needs.
If I have taken workshops before, do I still need to complete the Information Request Form?
Yes, we ask that you submit a new form each term, so that your account information will be updated. Simply complete the Information Request Form, wait one business day, and then contact the Help Desk at 316-295-5767 or email at email@example.com to confirm the update of your account and collect any needed information for account access.
I am a current METL/MAT, or other Friends University degree-seeking student. Do I need to submit a form in order to take workshops?
No, meet with or contact your success coach/adviser, as normal, to obtain your needed alternate pin for registration.
If I do not submit an Information Request Form first, will I be able to register for workshops?
No, as online registration requires you to have a user identification and pin number. This protects your information!
What happens if I lose/forget my user ID or PIN?
Please contact the Help Desk if you have trouble logging in, need instructions, or assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 316-295-5767 or 800-794-6945, ext. 5767.
What if I submit an Information Request Form now, but don’t want to take a class until later?
That’s OK! Just remember that you will need to submit a new form each term in order for us to update your account.
What are some of the services I will receive with online registration?
Once you have access to your Self-Service Banner account, there are many services available to you. You will be able to view your history and activity of workshops taken through Friends University. You may also view a copy of your unofficial transcript. This may be extremely helpful as you are reviewing your re-licensure dates and needs. You may also add/drop classes according to the dates listed for each offering.
When can I register for a workshop?
You may register for a workshop during open enrollment. We suggest you enroll quickly, as classes fill!
I still have questions. Whom should I contact?
