International students, students who are residents of countries other than the United States, that wish to take nondegree, undergraduate summer classes at UAlbany must first obtain clearance through the Office of International Students & Scholar Services. You can reach them at 518-591-8189 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Those students who hold a green card do not need to obtain clearance through ISSS, but are required to submit their green card to our office in order to be admitted. Applications for international students can not be processed until the appropriate documents are received by our office.
Registration begins on Monday, March 21, 2016. Registration will continue until the first day of each summer session. Please be aware that if you send your application before March 21, we will not process your application until that date. The Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions does suggest registering for your summer classes early to increase your chances for enrollment in your desired course(s).
You will receive an automatic response once you have submitted your online application. If you do not receive this confirmation, please resubmit your application and/or contact our office at (518) 442-5140. Applications submitted online are received in our office on the next business day.
Please list courses for which you wish to be registered using our catalog # and class # format only (i.e. A Bio 110, #2045). If you do not list a class number, we are unable to determine the section you prefer and we will register you for the first available section.
You will receive a confirmation of your schedule and related registration materials by e-mail within 3-5 business days after your application is received. This confirmation will also list any problems with the course(s) you requested such as closed to further enrollment or restricted to a particular type of student. If you do not receive this confirmation packet, please contact our office at (518) 442-5140.
If you are a degree student at another school, it is your responsibility to gain approval for course transferability to your home school program. Be sure to see your advisor before registering for courses.
By submitting this form, the Office of General Studies and Summer
Sessions will officially register you for the requested course(s)
providing the course(s) is still open and has no restrictions placed on
it. Once we have enrolled you for classes, you have incurred 100% financial liability for tuition and fee charges connected with your registration unless you officially withdraw or drop courses by the appropriate liability deadlines. An E-Bill will be generated for the total credit hours listed on your schedule. Please pay this by its due date or late charges will be assessed.
If your plans change and you do not wish to attend summer classes at UAlbany after you have been registered, you must officially withdraw by the published deadlines to cancel your tuition liability. You may withdraw using MyUAlbany, the University's web-based student service system, in person at our office, or you may write, fax, or e-mail a request to the Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions. Nonattendance, or failure to log-on to your online course, does NOT constitute a withdrawal and will NOT delete your tuition charges.
You may add or drop/withdraw from a course(s) via MyUAlbany, in person at our office, or you may write, fax, or e-mail a letter requesting your changes. Please send any correspondence to Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions, SS-110, University at Albany, Albany, NY 12222. Our fax number is (518) 442-5149. Please be sure to call our office after faxing your letter to confirm it was received. If requesting a drop, your drop date will be the postmark or fax date of your request. We will send a confirmation of your request via mail.
If you are bringing a car on campus, you must purchase a parking decal from the Office of Parking and Mass Transit Services. You can register your vehicle online through MyUAlbany
or on their website
or in-person at their office located on Center Drive East between Chemistry Lane and Physics Lane. Parking spaces are available in front of the building for use while conducting business in the Office.
