Your access to on line registration depends upon the total of your completed credit hours as of January 2013. Log on to KnightWeb to learn the day and time at which you can begin registration. If a hold has been placed on your registration because of outstanding financial or other obligations to the College, you will not be able to register until the hold is cleared. You can view holds on the Student Records Menu. You can pay outstanding financial obligations on KnightWeb by credit card. Registration holds are updated every weekday between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.
You will receive a copy of the above instructions at your Geneseo email address. If you have any questions, call the Registrar's Office at 585-245-5566 or come to Erwin 102.
From March 25 to April 19 your academic advisor will be available, by appointment, to discuss your schedule.
For some students (all freshmen, transfers in their first semester, students with a GPA below 2.30, students on academic probation, and AOP students during their first four semesters), academic advisement is required. If advisement is required for you, you must make an appointment with your academic advisor to discuss scheduling recommendations and to obtain clearance. Even if advisement is not required for you, you are strongly encouraged to consult your advisor about your schedule.
Absentee registrations will be accepted only from current (Spring 2013) student teachers, students on full-time internships, and students on leave of absence returning in the Fall. Students in these categories who register by mail must enclose the Registration Form in an envelope addressed to Fall Registration, Registrar’s Office, Erwin 102, SUNY Geneseo, 1 College Circle, Geneseo, NY 14454.
Students with less than a 2.30 cumulative grade point average (GPA) may register for a maximum of 16 hours. Students with a GPA of 2.30 or above may enroll in 17 hours during advance registration but may increase to a maximum of 19 hours during the drop/add period. Permission to exceed these maximums must be obtained from the Dean of the College, Erwin 106, at the beginning of the fall semester. Students in student teaching or SUNY Study Abroad Programs in Fall 2013 must register and pay tuition and fees at SUNY Geneseo. Students in non-SUNY programs for Fall 2013 should complete Leave of Absence forms in Erwin 221.
Permission slips for any courses requiring permits or signed overload slips for closed courses must be processed in the Registrar’s Office (Erwin 102). The Registrar’s Office will enter permission on the student record and then the student can process the addition on KnightWeb.
New students will receive, by mail, information about advisement and registration from the Office of the Dean of the College and the Orientation Office.
Students who do not register during the advance period should register during the Open Registration period, August 7-23. Late registrations will be accepted from August 26 through August 30 in the Registrar’s Office. Beginning August 27, a late registration fee of $40.00 will be assessed.
In order to establish their intent to pursue a course, all students are expected to attend each course in which they are registered within the first two scheduled class meetings. Individual faculty members or departments may, at their discretion, drop any unexcused pre-registered student who does not attend class by Monday, August 26 or the first day of class (whichever comes later). Students who know in advance that they will be out of class at the beginning of the semester must notify the Dean of Students (College Union 354, ext. 5706), who will notify the faculty. However, except in cases of religious observances, the instructor determines whether an absence is excusable.
Students who do not officially drop or withdraw from courses and do not attend class are still officially registered for their courses, may be obligated to pay outstanding tuition and fees, and may be subject to a failing grade.
The Drop/Add period runs from August 26 through August 30, and students will be able to add and drop using KnightWeb. Students wishing to remove themselves from courses after 5:00pm on August 30, but prior to the withdrawal deadlines will receive a grade of W.
Many courses carry prerequisites which are published in course descriptions of the Undergraduate Bulletin for 100, 200, and 300 level courses and the Graduate Guide for 400 and 500 level courses (Prerequisites for experimental courses are published under course descriptions.) In most cases, KnightWeb will refuse registration if prerequisites have not been met.
Students are responsible for knowing and fulfilling all prerequisites before registration. A student who enrolls in a course without completing all prerequisites or receiving permission from the instructor to waive prerequisites maybe subject to removal from the course.
Courses in which a student works under the guidance and supervision of a member of the faculty on a one-to-one basis (e.g., ARTS 307, PSYC 391, ENGL 399) are not listed. Arrangements for these should be made by the student with the appropriate department and individual faculty member. A "Directed Study" form obtainable in department offices and in the Office of the Dean of the College must be completed by the student and instructor, and signed by the instructor and Department Chair. Undergraduate students must submit the Directed Study form to the Registrar’s Office in Erwin 102, and graduate students must submit the form to the Graduate Office, Erwin 106. Deadline for submission is Friday, August 30.
Students seeking an internship should contact their Department Chair or the Internship Coordinator in (Erwin 106). Students must satisfy minimum academic standards established by the College and specific academic requirements for the individual Internship. Applications are to be submitted (with an unofficial copy of the transcript if required by the Department) by deadlines specified by the department or program coordinator. Applications for Fall 2013 internships should be turned into the department by May 8. Completed contracts for approved internships are to be submitted no later than Friday, August 30. Students enrolled in Internships must restrict their semester course load to a maximum of 16 semester hours unless special permission is granted by the Dean of the College. For information on internship opportunities and procedures, contact the Office of the Dean, Erwin 106 or Student Employment, Blake A 104.
Full-time students at the College (i.e. those registered for at least 12 credit hours at Geneseo) may cross-register for additional course work at several colleges and universities in the Rochester area without paying additional tuition. Students may cross-register only when a course is never offered at Geneseo. Registration forms for cross-registration are available in Erwin 102. Students from other colleges and universities in the Rochester area who are cross-registering at SUNY Geneseo must follow the registration procedures for non-matriculated students.
Superior undergraduate students may apply to enroll in a 400-level graduate course provided that half of the credit requirements of the degree program and two-thirds of the course and credit requirements of the academic major have been completed. Contact the Graduate Office in Erwin 106 for more information.
The College is aware that some students may be concerned about the availability of certain required courses. If you believe that, by virtue of closed classes or unavoidable course conflicts, your graduation is in jeopardy of being delayed, please do the following:

If this is your last registration before graduation or student teaching, this is also your last chance to make certain that you have completed your graduation requirements. You can avoid the cost, aggravation, and time of having to make up overlooked requirements by taking a few minutes to review what you have completed and what you have left to do, and check over the most common mistakes made by graduating seniors. To do this, use the WebCAPP option on your KnightWeb account.
