Step 4: Apply for Financial Aid (Optional)
Step 5: Register for Classes
Contact Krista Thompson, Office of Graduate Studies for notification of your faculty advisor. After you’ve received academic advisement and your advisement hold has been cleared, log into Banner (our student record system) and register for classes.
Step 6: RSVP for Orientation
A mandatory on-campus orientation program takes place prior to the start of each semester. Visit sunypoly.edu/orientation, select your start term, and RSVP for the Albany Graduate Student Orientation.
Step 7: Review & Pay Your Bill Online
SUNY Poly does not mail paper billing statements. After you’ve registered, a message will be sent to your campus e-mail account directing you to log into Banner to view your bill, confirm your charges, and make payment. Failure to pay your bill by the due date may result in a loss of your course registration.
Step 8: Submit Required Health Documentation
All students are required to comply with mandatory health requirements which include providing proof of immunizations. Complete the required forms and return them to the Wellness Center by August 1 for a fall start and January 1 for a spring start. Failure to return the forms may result in the loss of your course registration. For your security, medical records should be faxed (rather than e-mailed) to 315-792-7371. Forms are available online: sunypoly.edu/student-life/student-resources/wellness-center/forms
Step 9: Submit Final, Official Transcripts
To formally matriculate, you must submit final, official transcripts from all colleges previously attended. Your financial aid will not be released until these are received.
