Registration for Incoming Students

Incoming students (new and transfer) at SUNY Geneseo register for their first semester's classes with the help of the Office of Advising staff.

How do I choose my classes?

New Students 

Once you are enrolled through admissions, complete the Course Registration Survey.  The link is emailed to your Geneseo email account and shares your plans, needs, and interests so we can build a customized schedule.

Make sure your Advanced Placement (AP) test scores, transcripts from dual enrollment courses, international bachelorette diplomas, and/or any other ways you plan to bring in college credit are being sent to Geneseo.

Transfer Students: 

Once you are enrolled through admissions, an advisor will begin to build your course schedule.  Depending on your major, this process will be slightly different, but you can expect communication from a Geneseo advisor who will talk with you about what you are planning and expected and will share a potential schedule with you.  Make sure you advocate for what you want from your Geneseo experience!

Expected Timeline



How to Prepare?

You're invited to browse the Geneseo course catalog, visit DegreeWorks, and/or browse the Undergraduate Bulletin for details of your major programs or potential programs.  

Fill out the Course Registration Survey honestly and candidly - it's okay not to know what you want or to change your mind. There will be opportunities in July and August to update your schedule.

What if I have questions? 

You can contact the Office of Advising at or 585-245-5541. We'll be happy to answer any questions you have!
