Viewing Undergraduate WebNow documents

CAESAR links to imaged documents in WebNow/ImageNow (also known as Perceptive Content) are available only to the Undergraduate school advisers. If you do not see the link in CAESAR, contact your school administration to find out why your access is set the way it is.

  • Java software must be installed on your computer to use WebNow. As of fall 2018 the only two browsers supporting Java are:
    • Internet Explorer for Windows
    • Safari for Mac OS version 11 or lower
      • Safari 12 does NOT support Java
  • If you have trouble accessing the login page for WebNow after following the directions below, try the following:
    • Go to the Java site and download the newest version of Java for Windows. Chrome, Firefox, and MS Edge do NOT support Java and Safari 12 does NOT support Java.
    • Add the WebNow URL to the "Exception Site List" in your Java Control panel:

  • If you are using a Mac with the newest version of Safari--Safari 12--then try installing Firefox ESR on your machine.
    • Be sure to go to Preferences, in Firefox ESR, and select "Never check for updates (not recommended: security risk)" via "Advanced." While it is not a recommended security setting, it will ensure WebNow continues to work in this browser.
