President's message on course registration

11/10/2020 

Dear Cortland students,

As Thanksgiving break approaches and the fall semester starts to wind down, I want to remind you about the importance of academic advising and course registration for the Spring 2021 semester. Remember that help is available if you need it, especially now during the pandemic. 

Many people can answer questions about academic planning and course selection. Your academic advisor is an excellent resource. Advisement and Transition can answer questions about advising and Student Registration and Record Services can assist with registration.

And as you prepare for next semester, I encourage you to follow these reminders: 

  • Meet with your academic advisor: You must consult with your academic advisor before registering for classes. Your advising appointment may take place on Webex, or over the phone or through a different format. After meeting with your advisor, you will receive a PIN to use during registration. 
  • Register at your time ticket: You will be able to see your registration time in myRedDragon under the Student tab and Registrar channel. Select “Registration Status” to view your time ticket and other important information. Time tickets are based on earned credit hours and “holds” on your record must be resolved before registering. 
  • Ask for help if you need it: This is especially important for our first-year students. If you need help, contact your academic advisor or staff members in Advisement and Transition or Student Registration and Record Services as soon as possible.

Thank you again for your patience and commitment as we learn and work together. 

All the best,

Erik J. Bitterbaum 

President
