Spring 2021 Guide and COVID-19 information

Welcome Registered Students

Thank you for registering in Summer Session 2021!  Whether you are getting ahead, catching up or trying something new, we want to ensure a successful academic experience.

Confirm your attendance and pay your bill. Payment for Summer Session courses is due on Friday, May 7. Your myRedDragon account is the official location where your bill is posted. E-mail reminders will be sent to your Cortland e-mail address each time a new billing statement is posted. It is important to check your e-mail and account regularly for changes in charges, financial aid or other billed items. For directions on how to view/print your bill, please see View Your Bill.

In the event you need to drop a course after it begins, you may drop the course by the dates provided below. If you do not drop the course before the final day of the drop period, you will need to withdraw and will be held liable for payment of the course.  Read more about withdrawals and refunds.

Course materials will be available no later than the first day of the term. Students are encouraged to reach out to their instructor regarding the expectations for their course. For students enrolled in multiple courses, it is possible that you see materials for one course, but not all courses. Availability in Blackboard is dependent upon when the courses are offered and when faculty make the materials available. If you encounter any issues with accessing Blackboard, myRedDragon or your email account, contact The Help Center at 607-753-2500. You will need your Cortland ID (C#) when contacting The Help Center. 

Resources are available to help students through the Summer Session!  Visit our available services page to learn about housing, library, parking, tutoring services and more! The Learning Center has a listing of resources to assist students for online learning, including tips on active reading, learning from home, time management and more! Be sure to check out the Communicating with Faculty video created in Fall 2020!
