Online registration for WinterSession begins Monday, October 30 at 8 am. It is operational 24/7 during registration periods from Web Banner, and you can register from any computer with internet access.

Before You Register

  • Holds: After signing in to Web Banner, check Student Services > Student Records > View Holds for any holds that may prevent you from registering. Only the office that placed the hold on your record can clear it. Please contact that office regarding the hold. If a hold is placed on your record after you have registered for courses, you must email a written request from your Brockport email address to make changes to your schedule.
  • Have the Course Reference Number (CRN) for each course for which you are attempting to register. You can use the online Course Schedule to look up the CRNs.
  • Permission Key Numbers are no longer available. Please see instructions below regarding overriding enrollment to a course.

State University of New York System-wide Policy

All students are required to accept SUNY Brockport’s Code of Student Conduct to register. A hold is placed on the student account (at the end of each day) for students who have not accepted the Code of Student Conduct, precluding the student from conducting further business with the University.

Course Limits for WinterSession

Undergraduate and graduate students may register for a maximum of 6 credits.

Any exception to these limits requires permission from Dr. Susan Lowey, Director of Special Sessions and Programs.


Registration Deadlines

It is important to register early. WinterSession courses that do not meet a minimum enrollment may be canceled. While it is possible to register for a course as late as the first day of class, early registration helps ensure that the course will be held. Register early to be counted!

  • Add Period: December 18 - 20, 2023
  • Late Add Period: December 21, 2023 - January 2, 2024

Affirming Enrollment and Accepting Financial Responsibility

All students must go online and Affirm Enrollment and Accept Financial Responsibility by Monday, November 27, 2023. Students who register after Monday, November 27, 2023 must Affirm Enrollment and Accept Financial Responsibility within 24 hours of registration. Sudents who have not done so will be removed from their WinterSession course(s).

Re-registration (due to not affirming enrollment online)

Students who register by Monday, November 27, 2023, and do not check the “Accept” button on the online Enrollment Agreement screen on or before Monday, November 27, 2023, will have their course schedule removed. Students who register on or after Monday, November 27, 2023, and do not check the “Accept” button by the end of the next business day will also have their courses dropped. In both cases, late registration fees apply ($40 fee) and will be assessed for each subsequent re-registration.

Tuition Liability

Students who are adding and dropping courses after the 100 percent refund period for a course is over, will be assessed tuition and fee liability for both the courses which have been dropped, as well as any new courses that have been added.


Class non-attendance does not excuse financial obligation. If you are registered for a class, you will be responsible for full payment of your course schedule whether or not you attend class(es).

Changing Your Mind: Canceling Enrollment and Declining Financial Responsibility

After completing your registration, you may decide that you do not want to be registered and do not want to be financially responsible for the course. In this case, you must go online and drop the course by the deadline: Tuesday, December 26, 2023.

Repeating Courses

Undergraduates may repeat a course at SUNY Brockport to attempt a higher grade, but the course has to be precisely the same Brockport course as the one previously taken. Equivalents will not do. The most recent grade counts toward graduation requirements and the cumulative grade point average, and the previous grade remains on your permanent record. Students receiving financial aid should not attempt to repeat a course for which they received a grade of D- or higher without first checking with either the Financial Aid Office (585) 395-2501, or the Academic Success Center (585) 395-5397.

Permission to Register

If a WinterSession course is full or requires departmental approval to register, you must contact the instructor or the department for a permission signature on a “Permission to Enroll” slip for the course, or an email from the instructor giving permission for you to enroll in the course. The instructor also can enter a “Registration Override” for you in Web Banner. To find out if a course requires departmental approval, find the course online, click on the CRN and look for the words “departmental approval” on the page that comes up.
