Welcome Registered Students

Thank you for registering in Summer Session 2024!  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. Bills will be issued beginning Monday, April 15. Payment for Summer Session courses is due on Friday, May 3. 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 BillContact the Student Accounts Office with questions regarding billing and payments at 607-753-2313.

In the event you need to drop a course after it begins, you may drop the course via myRedDragon or submit the Alternate Registration (requires myRedDragon log-in) to drop by the dates provided below. Drops after time tickets close (June 21) can only be processed via the Alternate Registration Process. If you do not drop the course by the final day of the drop period, you will need to withdraw (see Withdrawal and Leave Forms) 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. Student access to course materials in Brightspace is dependent upon when the courses are offered and when faculty make the materials available. If you encounter any issues with accessing Brightspace, 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. 

Check out the Introduction to Brightspace Video or Brightspace Help for additional guidance.

Textbooks are fulfilled through a partnership with eCampus.com. Students are encouraged to place their textbook order at least 1 - 2 weeks prior to the course beginning. 

Inclusive Access offers students instant access to online interactive courseware materials and ebooks, at the lowest possible price. A course materials content charge for each Inclusive Access course is added to the student bill and will be list as "Digital Course Materials". Students will have access to the course materials beginning on the first day of class through their Brightspace account. Students may opt out within the first week of summer session. If a student wishes to opt out of the Inclusive Access materials prior to the end of the one-week period, the charges will be refunded. At that point, the Inclusive Access materials will no longer be available. Students can opt out by visiting their course(s) in Brightspace and clicking on the Opt-Out button. Students who opt out are responsible for purchasing the necessary course materials. Since most of the material in the Inclusive Access program is interactive courseware, where students are required to complete assignments, it’s not suggested to “opt-out.”  Please note that no refunds are given after the initial one-week period.  Prices for each course’s material can be found at our online bookstore.

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!
