Registration Information and Help
Public Course Schedule
At SUNY Cortland all continuing, new and visiting students may use the online course schedule to search for classes as you plan for registration. The online schedule gives you the ability to use a variety of search features and filters when looking for courses. After selecting the semester you are interested in, you may search by course prefix, course number, course attribute, course status, and course title.
Visiting and Cross-Registering Students
Are you a visiting student (non-matriculated student) attempting to register? Please access our visiting student page for policies and registration instructions. You may also review our cross-registration instructions if you are planning to attend using the SUNY cross-registration agreement. Please do not hesitate to contact the Registrar's Office if you have any questions about visitor registration or cross-registration.
General Information and Getting Started
Additional registration guidance, FAQs and information is published on the Advisement and Transition site as well.
- Time Tickets and Registration Windows: Please view the registration calendar page to see current registration time ticket information and registration windows.
- Holds: If there are any "holds" on your student record, those obligations must be resolved before registration will be permitted.
- Undergraduate Advising: Undergraduate students will need to meet with their advisor to plan their schedule. Your advisor will give you your 4-digit registration pin number, once the 4-digit registration pin has been released, and the time ticket becomes active -- access to register on myRedDragon will be available. Graduate students do not need a 4-digit registration pin number, and will only be using the time-ticket for myRedDragon registration access.
- For Faculty & Academic Advisors: All advisee registration pin and time ticket information is located on myRedDragon, select the Academics tab, under Advisor Resources select "Advisee Contact List." Additionally on myRedDragon, advisors have the ability to directly contact advisees using the "e-mail my advisees" feature. CAPP and DegreeWorks audits are accessible under "Tools" and will be a valuable resource throughout the advisement process. You will be able to use CAPP and DegreeWorks as you discuss program requirements and course registration.
Connected Courses (Lectures and Labs/Recitations)
Many courses will have multiple elements associated with them. For example, many of the science courses offered at Cortland have a lecture and a lab component. When viewing the public schedule, the lecture will appear at the top of the list, with the labs appearing below and indented.
This indicates that these courses are linked, and you must register for the lecture, and the lab (or one of multiple lab options). The section identification guide below will help you identify section types.
