Visiting Rochester Students
Spring and summer sessions sometimes mean moving from the classroom to the Quad.
Experience Rochester through a wide array of courses in small group settings that fit your schedule plus activities that engage you with students from around the globe. You can earn academic credit during the summer by completing courses offered in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering.
Registration for Visiting Students
The deadline for online course registration for Session A is May 15, 2017 at 5:00 PM. After that date registration must be completed by filling out a paper registration form, paying for your course at the Bursar’s Office and having them stamp your registration form. This form must be returned to Lattimore 120.
If you are registering for a Session B course, you may register online up until May 15, 2017. If registering after the 15th you will need to wait until online registration reopens from June 19th – 29th. After June 29th registration for Session B must be completed by filling out a paper registration form, paying for your course at the Bursar’s Office and having them stamp your registration form. This form must be returned to Lattimore 120.
Prior to registering for courses, you must first create a new student account by completing a Non-matriculated Student Application. The purpose of this application is to collect personal information in order to set up access for you to use the online registration system at the University.
After creating a new account, you will be able to proceed to register for courses and submit payment information. If you have previously taken a course at Rochester, proceed directly to the course registration page.
Note: If you already have a bachelor's degree, please see instructions at the top of this page. If you are participating in the Rochester Area Colleges (RAC) Inter-Institutional program, then DO NOT register as a Non-Matriculated student. You MUST follow the procedure located here.
Step 1: Create New Student Account
- After completing the new student account creation process you will be notified within 24 to 48 hours via email to set up your NetID and Password. The NetID and password will allow you to register for your courses online.
- Completion of both the Non-matriculated Students Online Application and initialization of your NetID and Password are required prior to be being eligible to use the online registration system.
Step 2: Register for Summer Courses
Step 3: Submit payment for courses.
Payments can be made by mailing a check or in person at the Bursar’s office. If payment is not received by May 15th for courses in Session A or June 29th for courses in Session B you will be deregistered. You will be assessed a $150 fee to process a repeat registration for a course removed due to nonpayment. If payment is not received by May 15th for courses in Session A or June 29th for courses in Session B you will be deregistered and your housing reservation may be cancelled.
