Online Registration and Payment Instructions for Online-Accelerated Students

View the courses required for your program of study, and registration/payment deadlines:


Class registrations, schedule management, and managing payments can all be done online, using Fitchburg State University's Web4 interface. To sign in to Web4, complete the following steps:

  1. Open Web4 in your web browser.
  2. Click Enter Secure Area.
  3. In User ID, enter either your student ID (@XXXXXXXX) or your Social Security number.
  4. In PIN, enter your security PIN code.
  5. Click Login.

Note for first-time Web4 users

If you have not previously used Web4, your PIN is your date of birth in mmddyy format, where the last two digits of your birth year are used.

After you sign in with your User ID and PIN, you will be prompted to create a new PIN, which must be least six characters in length, and contain letters, numbers, or a combination of both — no punctuation or special characters.

After confirming your new PIN, Web4 will display a Login Verification Security and Answer page, and will require you to create a question and response to help you remember your PIN if you forget.

Using Web4 to manage your classes and payments

After you sign in to Web4, you can use it to complete the following tasks:

Registering for courses
