If you see the UA Network Registration Page:

  • Enter your MyBama username and password and click “Submit”
  • You may see a message saying this is a duplicate registration – you must still complete it to get online – click “Continue”
  • Click “Submit” or “Continue” until you see the page that tells you registration will take effect after a minute and that you will need to restart your computer

Windows Users

  • Restart your computer (go to the start menu and select restart, do not just press the power button as this may put it into hibernation which will not complete the registration)

Mac Users

  • Restart your Mac completely, be sure it doesn’t simply sleep or hibernate

After restarting your computer, you should be able to get online. Launch Internet Explorer (Safari for Mac users) and go to http://www.hesiinet.com.
