How to Register for Classes
1. Log into MyECC
Academic advisement is highly recommended before registering for classes.
Log into your student account (MyECC) by entering in your username and password. Your username and initial password can be found at the MyUsername Check.
For assistance, contact the Computer Help Desk at email@example.com or call (716) 851-1835, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
2. Search for Courses
To search and register for course sections, go to WebAdvisor and click "Log In" on the top right of the page. You will need your SUNY Erie email and password. Select the "Students" area in WebAdvisor, then "Search/Register for Sections." Select the appropriate term and filters to search for course sections. When working in WebAdvisor, use the Menu button to return to a previous page rather than the Back button.
3. Register for Classes
The results of your registration will be shown on the screen once you enter. At this point you can view your account, add or drop classes, or log off. Please pay strict attention to the bill due dates listed on the introductory page of the registration module, as you will be cancelled for non-payment if this bill is not paid by that date.
Note: If you have a hold on your account you will not be allowed to register until the hold is cleared. If you do not meet a specific requirement for a course, you will not be allowed to register for that course.
4. Make a Payment
The "Make a Payment" toggle allows you to make a full or partial payment on-line. Please note that you will not receive a Schedule/Bill through the mail as a result of your Web registration. You are responsible for downloading a copy of your schedule and for making payment by the due date. See the introductory page for payment deadlines.

Dropping, Adding, Withdrawing & Course Cancellation
Officially known as Schedule Adjustment, the Drop/Add period allows the student to change his or her semester class schedule. The period begins on the first day of classes and runs through the fifth day.
All Classes Day and Evening Procedure:
- Students should consult their academic adviser to determine which classes to change.
- Class changes can be made utilizing:
- WebAdvisor: login to WebAdvisor, click on the registration area and follow the prompts
to make the change.
- Visit your department or the respective department of the course and have them process
- Proceed to the Registrar’s Office and have them process the change.
- WebAdvisor: login to WebAdvisor, click on the registration area and follow the prompts to make the change.
- All course availability will show based on class capacity. Classes that are at capacity
will not be overloaded.
- Copies of schedule/bills are only available in the Registrar’s Office and it is strongly advised that students obtain a copy of their schedule/bill from the Registrar’s Office once they have processed their change.
Note: No registration transaction is complete until it is processed through the college’s computer system. Simply attending a class is not a method of official registration. Final grades will not be issued to anyone whose name does not appear on an official roster. It is ultimately the student's responsibility to make sure that he or she is properly registered for a class.
The student must complete their name, Social Security number, I.D. number, course title (ex. General psychology), course number (ex. PS 100), course section (note: course section designates campus ex. AB), semester and year (ex. Fall/20) and instructor name on the Course Withdrawal Form.
Student must sign and date form when complete and return the form to the Registrar’s Office.
Note: The form must be returned within published deadlines to be accepted. Withdrawing from a course(s) may affect a student's financial aid. Contact the Financial Aid Office for further information. Withdrawal from courses does not release a student from financial liability.
A student withdrawing from the college must complete the official withdrawal forms available in the campus Counseling Center by the last date to withdraw as published in the academic calendar. This procedure, once completed, terminates current registration in all courses.
Students who fail to complete the withdrawal procedure will no longer be in good standing. To re-enter the college, once the withdrawal procedure has been followed, the student must apply for readmission through the college’s Admissions Office.
For students who register during the advance registration period for classes to be held either in the fall or spring terms, the payment is due by the published due date. Check current publications for specific dates.
In order not to be cancelled from your pre-registered classes, a student must have been deferred by the Financial Aid office, be paid in full, or have enrolled in the Tuition Installment Plan (TIP) through Student Account Services by the due date. Students that fail to meet one of the above criteria will be cancelled from all pre-registered classes. Cancelled students that re-register will automatically be charged a re-registration fee.
First-time students, as well as re-registering students, who register for classes after the August or January due date, and whose bill is not covered by one of the above methods of payment, will automatically be charged $75 and placed in the Tuition Installment Plan.
It is the student's responsibility for payment even in instances of non-attendance, unless courses are officially dropped by the student during the published add/drop dates. The last date for dropping courses without liability is the last day of schedule adjustment.
It is important to note that by registering for classes the student acknowledges liability to SUNY Erie for tuition, fees and any required collection costs or legal fees as outlined in the tuition and fee section of the college catalog. As noted above, failure to attend classes does not absolve a student from liability. In all cases, it is the student's responsibility to drop classes by the due date or they will be held liable for their classes.
A student must first apply to SUNY Erie by completing an online application. Once a student has been accepted, they must register with the Registrar’s office and submit the Cross Registration form supplied to them by their home college. If a student does not submit the cross-registration form at the time of registration, the student will be billed for the course. Students that drop below full-time status at their home institution will be responsible for tuition costs.
- Students may register for up to six (6) credit hours including lab.
- Class registration is based on the availability of space within the class.
- Any other class or classes that are registered for are the responsibility of the student.
- Students must prove permanent residency in New York State for 12 months and Erie County for the six months prior to the start of the semester. Or provide an Out-of-County Certificate (hyperlink to Issuu) if the student’s residency is out of Erie County, but in New York State. All residents living out of Erie County must supply a certificate of residence to Student Account Services by October 1 for the Fall semester or February 15 for the Spring semester to have the out-of-county charge waived.
Classes that the College offers off-site are not eligible for Cross Registration. Cross-registered Students that register prior to the published dates will not be honored as cross-registered students and the tuition will not be deferred. All course-related fees in excess of tuition are the responsibility of the student.
