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 30, 2021 and do not check the Accept button on the online Enrollment Agreement screen on or before Friday, April 30, 2021, will have their course schedule removed.

Students who register on or after Saturday, May 1, 2021 and do not check the Accept button on the online Enrollment Agreement screen by the end of the next business day will also have course schedule removed.

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 SUNY Brockport to attempt a higher grade, but the course has to be precisely the same SUNY 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.
