Advance Registration

Registration for Summer Sessions begins mid-March! 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).

Albany Undergraduate Student

Current University at Albany students must follow the Advance Registration Reporting Schedule.  This schedule applies to both summer and fall registration.  

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

Visiting Student (College/University or High School)

If you are visiting from another college/university, or if you have been accepted for the spring term to a college/university other than Albany, you will need to apply for admission through the Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions. You may apply online.

After processing, you will receive by email from General Studies a confirmation of your admission and related information on accessing and 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.

Visiting high school students must meet the guidelines for admission as stated under on Admissions and Applications and may register for 100- or 200-level courses only using the High School Application.

Albany Graduate Student

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


Registration Cancellation

Please know that you are financially liable for the course(s) for which you have registered.  You will be billed the appropriate summer tuition and fees 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 and fee liability schedule in effect for Summer Sessions.  You may also contact the Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions by mail or fax (518-442-5149) requesting a withdrawal from your summer course(s).  Your drop date will be the postmark 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 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.

Automatic Wait List

Once a fully online undergraduate class section reaches full enrollment, students can use the Automated Wait List (AWL) process through MyUAlbany to add themselves directly to a wait list. Additional details can be found below:
