Registration Process

In order to finalize enrollment at Alfred State, students should refer to the following information:

Orientation

Orientation programs are designed to assist new students in adapting to the college and heightening their level of success. Positive relationships among students and faculty/staff are nurtured through numerous opportunities. Orientation is a college-wide initiative, inclusive of academics, student services, and support services of the college.

Immunizations

Prior to registration, students must have a completed health form on file with Alfred State Health and Wellness Services and all immunizations completed as stated on the form. A meningitis response page must be read and the appropriate box checked and signed by the student. Accepted students receive a health form in their acceptance materials which can then be taken to their family physician for completion.

Academic Advisement

Each student is assigned a faculty adviser within his/her program of study. The adviser helps students plan their program of course work, reviews interim grades with students, and answers questions about personal academic goals, requirements, and academic regulations.

Class Schedule/Course Registration

A tentative schedule, based on the students’ Math/English placement recommendations, will be prepared during orientation. Final class schedules will be available for new, transfer, and readmit students on final registration day.

Continuing students will meet with their academic adviser during a designated time each semester to discuss course selection for the next semester and to receive their Registration Authorization Code. Before meeting with their adviser, they will print their Course Selection Form found in Banner Web under “Student Forms” within the Student Services and Financial Aid link, and begin choosing classes for the upcoming semester. Registration is done online in Banner Web. Available classes can be accessed by going to Banner Web and clicking on “Class Schedule” prior to entering the secure area.

Continuing students will print their own schedules from Banner Web and adjustments to this schedule may be made during Add/Drop.

New, transfer, and readmit students will meet with their academic faculty advisers on registration day to pick up and discuss their final schedules. These final schedules will indicate if students need to process their bills with the Student Records and Financial Services Office. Students are not considered registered until they have picked up their final schedule and paid/processed their bill. Completed student health forms must also be returned to Health and Wellness Services at this time.

Note: Courses are dropped for students who do not process their bills by the due date.
