Registration

Applications are no longer being accepted for Wintersession 2015. These courses will again be offered fully online in our 2015 Summer Sessions. Advance registration begins March 23, 2015.

Registration Process

Registration for Wintersession 2015 begins October 15, 2014.  All admitted students are eligible to register and registration continues until the first day of classes.  The maximum course load during the Wintersession term is eight credit hours at the undergraduate level and six credit hours at the graduate level.

Albany Undergraduate Student

Current University at Albany students must follow the Advance Registration reporting schedule. This schedule applies to both spring and winter registration. Students may register at or after their appointed time, on the first day of classes, or may late register.

To register, you must first contact your advisor. Your advisor will provide you with authorization (Winter AVN) to register for Wintersession. All Albany students must register via MyUAlbany. Once registered for classes, Student Accounts will bill you at a later date.

Visiting Undergraduate Student (College or High School)

All visiting students, students that attend a college other than Albany or who are high school seniors, will be admitted and registered in classes by the Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions.

Upon receipt of your application, the Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions will admit you and enroll you in the course(s) you have listed provided you are eligible, no restrictions have been placed on the course(s), and the course(s) have not been closed or cancelled.

You will receive by email a confirmation of your schedule, or details as to why you could not be registered for requested course(s). You will also receive instructions for using MyUAlbany, the University’s web-based registration system.

If you are a visiting college student, it is your responsibility to discuss desired course(s) with your advisor at your home school to be sure that all prerequisites for the course(s) have been met and that the course(s) will transfer back to your school. To register for the Wintersession term, either apply online or complete the Nondegree Registration Application.

Visiting high school students must meet the guidelines for admission as stated under the admission section and may register for 100- or 200-level courses only. To register for the Wintersession term, complete the High School Application.

General Studies Undergraduate Student

A General Studies student is required to submit an application each semester he/she wishes to enroll. You may apply by mail, fax, or in-person. To apply and register for nondegree, undergraduate courses, apply online or use the Nondegree Registration Application.

Albany Graduate Student

To register, you must first contact your advisor. Your advisor will provide you with authorization to register for Wintersession. All Albany students must register for their coursework via MyUAlbany. Once registered for classes, Student Accounts will bill you at a later date.

Visiting or Nondegree Graduate Student

All visiting and nondegree graduate students should contact the Graduate Admissions Office.

Registration Cancellation

Please know that you are financially liable for the course(s) for which you have registered. You will be billed by the Office of Student Accounts for all registered coursework. Do not ignore any bills that you may receive since you will incur a late charge for each bill generated.

Should you have a change in plans and wish to cancel your tuition liability for all or some of your courses, go to MyUAlbany, the University’s web-based student service system, and drop any or all of the sections for which you have been registered. Please be aware that courses dropped after the first day of classes are subject to the tuition liability schedule in effect for the Wintersession. You may also contact the Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions by mail, email or fax (518-442-5149) requesting a withdrawal from your winter course(s). Your drop date will be the postmark or email or fax date of your request. When faxing us, please follow up with a phone call to our office (518-442-5140) to ensure your fax was received.

Please be aware that non-attendance, or failure to log on to your online course, does not constitute withdrawal.

Late Registration 

If you missed the official registration dates and would still like to register, you have the option to late register by following the same procedure that is outlined for regular registration. However, all students who are late registering will be assessed a late registration fee. Please refer to the Wintersession Academic Calendar for late registration dates.
