SummerSession ’21 registration is underway! 


SummerSession Registration 

Our SummerSession program is tailored to accommodate diverse schedules, with more than 250 undergraduate and graduate courses from mid-May to early August. Students can accelerate their degree program, catch up on prerequisites, or complete general education requirements.

SummerSession registration is available to current and former students who have registered for a Brockport course within the past two years.

Course Formats

The following 100% online course formats are offered during SummerSession ’21:

  • 100% Asynchronous (ASY) Courses: Our 100% online courses are taken/completed via asynchronous course activities such as online readings, problem solving, and discussions using Blackboard.
  • 100% Online, Combined (CMB) Courses: Our Online Combined courses are 100% online courses, and include a few mandatory synchronous (same time) meetings.  Students need to be online in Blackboard (Live Chat — synchronous) throughout the term. There are no Face-to-Face requirements. The remaining course work will be completed via asynchronous course activities such as online readings, problem solving, and discussions using Blackboard. Many CMB courses require students to have a webcam for the specific synchronous Blackboard Collaborate meetings.
  • Synchronous (SYN) Real Time Online Courses: Students in this section join a face-to-face class via remote technology (e.g., Live Video chat, Blackboard Collaborate, or Zoom), and will be required to attend all class meetings and complete all assignments and course work. Students must have access to a computer with an Internet connection, a remote camera, and audio capacity to participate in this course.
