SUNY Cortland welcomes all students to campus, including students attending other institutions and community members.

Pre-Registration Time Ticket Start Dates for Continuing Students Registering in Spring 2020

All undergraduate students are assigned time tickets for pre-registration based on earned credit hours.  Only undergraduate students will be assigned a PIN, which will be required to access course registration during the pre-registration period.  Undergraduate students must visit their academic advisor to receive registration guidance and to receive the PIN. The PIN is only used during pre-registration and is not required during the add/drop period. Graduate student registration opens for all graduate students at the start of the registration period.
