New and Visiting Students

Students who are new to The College at Brockport (anyone who has not registered for a course at The College at Brockport within the past two years or if you are have just graduated from Brockport) are required to complete and submit the New Student Information Form electronically to the Office of Special Sessions and Programs. Once the completed form has been submitted and processed, a student record will be created for you, which will allow you to register for WinterSession '18.

After the New Student Information Form has been received and reviewed by The Office of Special Sessions and Programs, applicants will be notified by email regarding their eligibility to register for WinterSession '18.

Some instructors may mail course materials to enrolled students before WinterSession '18 begins for advanced class preparation. Courses will be cancelled after Monday, December 4, if enrollments are insufficient for a course to run. Please register early!

Because of the intensive nature of the WinterSession '18 course format, students may take a maximum of four credits during WinterSession '18. Students interested in registering for up to six credits and who have an overall GPA of 3.5 or higher, may contact Dr. Karen Schuhle-Williams (Executive Director of Special Sessions and Programs) at (585) 395-2900.

Regardless of the method of registration (online, in-person, mail, or fax), all students must go online and Affirm Enrollment and Accept Financial Responsibility by Friday, December 1, 2017. Students who register after December 1, 2017 must Affirm Enrollment and Accept Financial Responsibility by the close of business on the business day following their registration. Students who have not done so will be removed from their WinterSession '18 class.

Students will have the opportunity each time they enter the Online Registration System to Affirm Enrollment and Accept Financial Responsibility by checking the "accept button" on the Enrollment Agreement screen. By doing this, the student confirms his/her intention to attend class and accept all financial charges.

How to Reserve Your Course (Affirm Enrollment and Accept Financial Responsibility)

Students do not have to accept charges before registering. If the student is unable to make this commitment during the initial registration session, he or she will have the opportunity to check the box later by returning to this Web page. This can be done anytime after the original registration, but must be done by Friday, December 1, 2017. Students who register after December 1, 2017 must go online and Affirm Enrollment and Accept Financial Responsibility by the close of business on the business day following their registration. If the student has not Affirmed Enrollment and Accepted Financial Responsibility by checking the "Enrollment Agreement Accept" box by the above deadlines, the student will be removed from the course.

Changing Your Mind: Canceling Enrollment and Declining Financial Responsibility

After completing your registration you may decide that you do not want to be registered and do not want to be financially responsible for the course. In this case you must drop the course by December 17, 2017 for classes with a start date of December 18, 2017. For classes with a start date of January 2, 2018 you must drop the course by January 1, 2018.

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.

To Affirm Enrollment and Accept Financial Responsibility:

  • Go to www.brockport.edu
  • Click on "Quick Links"
  • Click on "Web Banner"
  • Login to the system with your User ID (SS# or Banner ID #) and PIN
  • Click "Student Services"
  • Click "Registration"
  • Click "Affirm Enrollment"
  • Choose the appropriate semester from the drop down list
  • Click "Accept" and then "Submit". If you click "Accept" without clicking "Submit", your enrollment will not be affirmed.
  • You will receive the message "Our records show that you have accepted the enrollment agreement". If you do not get that message, be sure you have clicked both "Accept" AND "Submit".
  • Your enrollment will then be locked in for the term.

Permission to Register

If a WinterSession '18 course is full or requires departmental approval to register, you must contact the instructor or the department for a permission signature or a permission key number.  To find out if a course requires departmental approval, find the course online, click on the CRN and look for the words "departmental approval" on the page that comes up.

Registration Deadlines

It is important to register early. WinterSession '18 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. Register early to be counted!

Session I (Monday, December 18-Friday, January 19)

Deadline: Friday, December 15, 3 pm; Online Deadline: Sunday, December 17

Session II (Tuesday, January 2-Friday, January 12)

Deadline: Monday, January 1 (must register online)

Session III (Tuesday, January 2-Thursday, January 18)

Deadline: Monday, January 1 (must register online)

Re-registration (due to not affirming enrollment online)

Students who register by Friday, December 1, 2017 and do not check the "Accept" button on the online Enrollment Agreement screen on or before Friday, December 1, 2017, will have their course schedule removed. Students who register on or after Friday,December 1, 2017, and do not check the "Accept" button by the end of the next business day will also have their courses dropped. In both cases, late registration fees apply ($40 fee) and will be assessed for each subsequent re-registration.
