Register for Classes Online

  • Register for Classes Online

    All admitted students may advance register via the Web, which is accessible 24 hours a day, except for occasional service time. As always, walk-in registration is available to all students, as well as the mail-in option for individuals planning to attend on a part-time basis.

    New student accepted through Admissions and having completed the placement test and/or have been waived, will be able to utilize the Web to register for courses. You should have met with your adviser and attended orientation prior to registering on the Web. If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar’s Office at your campus.

    1. Log into MyECC

      Academic advisement is highly recommended before registering for classes.

      Log into your student account at myecc.ecc.edu by entering in your username and password. Your username and password are as follows:

      Username: The first six letters of last name + first initial + middle initial + two digit day of birth + last digit year of birth
      Password: the last four digits of social security number + two digit year of birth

      The username should be in lowercase. If your last name is shorter than six characters, your entire last name should be used. For common last names, there is the possibility of having duplicate account names. If you have a common name or are unsure of your account name, use the form at the top of this page to identify your account name. International students please call the International Students Office at (716) 851-1359 to obtain the number to used in place of a social security number.

      If you need further assistance go to Check Your ECC Username or contact the Computer Help Desk. You can reach the Help Desk at helpdesk@ecc.edu or by calling (716) 851-1835. They are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    2. Search for Courses

      To search and register for courses, click on the Courses link of the QuickLaunch Navigation box located on the left of the MyECC homepage to expand the section. Then click on Express Registration. To work in this area, you must know the course's synonym number. If you do not know the synonym number or are looking for a course, you can use the Search and Register for Sections area. In this area you must select the term before you proceed to the course selection area.

      Remember if you are not using Express Registration and are looking for a course to only use the course three number designation in the Course Number area. Do not put in the subject in this field only the three number designation for the course. For example, use 110 not EN 110. When you have completed your input click on the Submit toggle and await the results.

      Please use the Menu button when returning 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.
