Registration is an important consideration when planning your activity. There are two registration options to choose from:
Option 1: MiCME Registration
This is the preferred method. Registration and credit card payments are handled by MiCME. MiCME is approved for use through the University of Michigan Treasurer’s Office and it ensures that your participants have a MiCME account, which is required to claim credit, fill out evaluations and download certificates. Learn more about MiCME Registration.
Option 2: Departmental Registration
Departments are responsible for the entire registration process. Registration and credit card payments are handled by the departments, typically through an outside vendor. In addition, departments are responsible for getting participants to create a MiCME account in order to claim credit, fill out evaluations and download certificates.
