Registration at Clarkson University, Capital Region Campus

The following information pertains to matriculated students only. If you are a new student, or taking courses as a non-degree student, please contact Erin Wheeler at 518-631-8810. 

  1. Study Plan: The first step in the registration process is to have a Study / Advisement Plan in place. The Study Plan is an advising system used by the faculty that, in consultation with their advisees, establishes a customized term by term schedule of courses for each student. The student does not need to consult with his or her advisor prior to registering for courses if an accurate Study Plan is in place. Students can change their Study Plan in consultation with their advisor. When students register each term, the courses must align with the courses in the Study Plan. 
  2. MyCRC (formerly MyUGC): Most students register for courses online through their MyCRC Portal. Registration periods occur prior to the start of each term, and are published in the academic calendar. Students can also register using an Add/Drop form, and email, fax, mail, or hand-deliver to the Student Services Office at the Graduate Center.

For registration materials and assistance, please contact Student Administrative Services or call 518-631-9830.
