Microsoft Internet Explorer - Our online application currently works best using Microsoft's Internet Explorer 6 browser.

ALERT- Internet Explorer 7
ITSS strongly advises the Augusta University community to not upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 at this time. The vendors of our major campus systems such as Banner, PeopleSoft, WebCT Vista and One45 have not yet certified that their products are compatible with Internet Explorer 7. Until these and other systems can be fully tested with the new browser, campus computer users should continue to use Internet Explorer 6.

If you have already installed Internet Explorer 7, you may wish to try using the FireFox browser for this process.
