Registering for Undergraduate Online Courses
If you are a new student, your first step in taking an online course is always admission. Even if you want to take just one online class for fun, you still need to be a University at Albany student. You may seek admission to the University as either a matriculated or non-matriculated student. Admitted students from other SUNY institutions should see the Cross-Registration Guidelines.
Matriculated UAlbany Students
Matriculated University at Albany students can register directly through MyUAlbany.
To register for online graduate-level courses, you must be a matriculated degree student in one of the online degree programs or you must be accepted to the University as a graduate non-matriculated student.
To apply to one of the online degree programs, or to learn more about how to apply as a non-matriculated graduate student, please visit the Graduate Admissions website or call (518) 442-3980.
