Need helping adding new access point to WLC 5508

We got some new AP's for a IDF we just installed. I changed the VLAN's  on the ports for the AP's and my DHCP server shows the AP's but how do I add them into the WLC to be available to my users? We have a WLC and NCS. I think I can add it to either but I just cannot figure it out. I dont see the new AP's listed on the WLC anywhere.
