Advance Registration

Registration for Summer Sessions 2021 is now open and ongoing. 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).

Application Confirmation

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 [email protected] or (518) 442-5140. Applications submitted online are received in our office on the next business day.

Course Enrollment

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.

Registration Confirmation

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 [email protected] or (518) 442-5140.

Late Registration

If you missed the official registration dates and would still like to register, you have the option to late register during the late registration period for each session. Please refer to the Summer Academic Calendar for late registration dates. A permission number is required for any registrations after the first day of classes for each session. In addition, all students who are late registering will be assessed a late registration fee.

Transferring Credits

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.

Tuition Payments

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, or you may e-mail or fax a request to the Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions. Our fax number is (518) 442-5149. Please call our office after faxing your letter to confirm it was received. Nonattendance, or failure to log-on to your online course, does NOT constitute a withdrawal and will NOT delete your tuition charges.

Enrollment Adjustments

You may add or drop/withdraw from a course(s) via MyUAlbany, or you may e-mail or fax your changes. If requesting a drop, your drop date will be the date of your request. We will send a confirmation of your request via e-mail.

Parking Sticker

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 at corner of Tricentennial Drive and University Drive West. Parking spaces are available in front of the building for use while conducting business in the Office.
