Records & Registration

Financial Responsibility Acknowledgement

Registration for courses generates a tuition bill and associated fees.  To learn more about tuition and fees, contact Student Accounts or click here.


When you register for courses, you will first be prompted to read and accept the Financial Responsibility Statement.  This is a legally binding contract to pay all tuition and fees on your student account associated with your registration. Bills may include:

  • Housing costs
  • Meal plans
  • Hawk dollars
  • Health insurance 
  • All other departmental or school costs


Prior to the beginning of the semester, you will be prompted to Confirm Enrollment. When you confirm your enrollment, it means you are confirming your intention to attend SUNY New Paltz in that semester.  You can still add/drop courses according the the Academic Calendar dates.  Students who do not confirm enrollment at least one week prior to the start of classes, will not have access to course information on Brightspace, may not attend classes and will be de-registered from all classes prior to the enrollment census date. 


If your plans change and you are no longer planning to attend in the registered semester, you are responsible for dropping your classes and submitting a leave of absence or withdrawal from college form.
