For On-Campus and Zoom Workshops

Login to the same form where you signed up and click on your appointment history. The appointment history page shows the workshops that you signed up for and if you've completed them. Print this page, save it as a PDF, take a screenshot, etc., to use as proof of completion for your professor. Ask your professors if they have a preference. 

What if I'm late? 

If you miss 15 minutes or more of the on-campus workshops, you may not get credit for the workshop. 

If you are taking the self-paced online workshop in Canvas, you don't need to worry about being late or missing anything. You can come in and out of that workshop at your own pace.
