Advance Registration

Students admitted to the University are strongly encouraged to register during Advance Registration to ensure the availability of the courses they want. Students not eligible to advance register are those whose admissions status precludes continued enrollment, are academically ineligible to continue, withdrawn, or students who have “holds” blocking their registration. To view "holds" and how to resolve them, login to MyUAlbany. Click the Home tab and then look under Important Notices.   

Eligible Graduate Students may register, add or drop at any time between the first day of Advance Registration and the first day of classes for the semester. After the first day of classes, please refer to the Academic Calendar for specific restrictions, fees and deadlines. 

Degree-seeking Undergraduate Students may register, add or drop at any time between their Enrollment Appointment Start Date and the first day of classes for the semester. Please note that undergraduate students register on a seniority basis, according to the number of earned credits (see "Preparing for Advance Registration" for more information). After the first day of classes, please refer to the Academic Calendar for specific restrictions, fees and deadlines. To view Enrollment Appointment Dates:

  1. Login to MyUAlbany
  2. Select the Academics tab
  3. On the left side, under Steps to Enroll, click on the link When Can I Enroll?
  4. Select the semester you wish to view your enrollment appointment for
