Registering for Classes

Main Page Content


There are two ways to register for SummerSession courses:

Online Registration In-person Registration

State University of New York System-wide Policy

All students are required to accept The College at Brockport Code of Student Conduct to register. A hold is placed on the student account (at the end of each day) for students who have not accepted the Code of Student Conduct, precluding the student from conducting further business with the College.

Course Limits for SummerSession

  • Undergraduate students may register for a maximum of 16 credits.
  • Graduate students may register for a maximum of 15 credits.

Any exception to these limits requires written permission from Dr. Priya Banerjee, Interim Director of Special Sessions and Programs, at (585) 395-2900.

Registration Deadlines

It is important to register early. SummerSession courses that do not meet a minimum enrollment may be canceled. While it is possible to register for a course as late as the first day of class, early registration helps ensure that the course will be held. 

SummerSession '20 Deadlines
Monday, March 23 Registration begins for all sessions. (Online registration begins at 6 am.)
Friday, April 24 Registrations that have not been affirmed online by students are removed. Students may re-register for their courses if space is still available (late fees apply).

In-person/online registration deadline: 1 business day before the course begins.

Contact the Office of Registration and Records at (585) 395-2531 or, for Special Session dates and deadlines.

Independent Study and Directed Study

Independent Study is intended to be an extension, or spinoff, of an existing course. It provides the student with an opportunity to pursue/research a subject in more depth and in a more independent manner than would be possible in a traditional course.

Directed Study is designed to be a substitute for a course that is needed for the student's program of study but is not offered in a particular term. The material covered in such courses is essentially the same as that covered in the traditional course. Directed Study is a possible option only when a course is not offered during the term in which the student wishes to enroll.

Eligible students may carry no more than one Independent Study course and one Directed Study course per session during SummerSession.

Policy for Undergraduate Students

Policy for Graduate Students

Deadline to register for all SU independent or directed study courses: Wednesday, July 8 at 4 pm. Registration for any course will not be accepted after this date and time. Students must register prior to starting any directed study or independent study.

Late Registration

For students with no existing SummerSession registration, registering for courses during the Add Period of that particular session constitutes a late registration. There is a $40 fee for late registration.

Re-registration (due to not affirming enrollment online)

Students who register by Friday, April 24, 2020 and do not check the Accept button on the online Enrollment Agreement screen on or before Friday, April 24, 2020, will have their course schedule removed.

Students who register on or after Saturday, April 25, 2020, and do not check the Accept button by the end of the next business day will also have their courses removed.

In both cases, late registration fees apply ($40 fee) and will be assessed for each subsequent re-registration.

Tuition Liability

Students who are adding and dropping courses after the 100 percent refund period for a course is over, will be assessed tuition and fee liability for both the courses which have been dropped, as well as any new courses that have been added.

Class non-attendance does not excuse financial obligation. If you are registered for a class, you will be responsible for full payment of your course schedule whether or not you attend class(es).

Repeating Courses

Undergraduates may repeat a course at The College at Brockport to attempt a higher grade, but the course has to be precisely the same College at Brockport course as the one previously taken. Equivalents will not do. The most recent grade counts toward graduation requirements and the cumulative grade point average, and the previous grade remains on your permanent record. Students receiving financial aid should not attempt to repeat a course for which they received a grade of D- or higher without first checking with either the Financial Aid Office (585) 395-2501, or the Academic Success Center (585) 395-5397.
