If you are a current matriculated University at Albany graduate student during the regular academic year, you are already admitted and need only see your assigned academic advisor for course advisement and to obtain clearance to register.

Nondegree Graduate Students
If you are not currently a graduate student at UAlbany, but would like to take one or more graduate courses in the summer, please contact Graduate Admissions.  

Undergraduate Students

Current UAlbany Students
If you are a University at Albany student and are a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior during the regular academic year, you are already admitted and need only see your assigned academic advisor for course advisement and to obtain clearance to register.

Students who are academically dismissed at the end of the spring semester may attend the first Summer Sessions only. Any later classes (session 2 and beyond) must be dropped by the student. 

Newly Admitted UAlbany Students
If you are a newly admitted freshman or transfer student at the University at Albany for the fall 2012 term, you need to be sure that your fall application is updated to include summer 2012 as your starting term.  Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and file a request to update your admission to summer 2012.  You would then need to see your assigned advisor in order to register.
