Enrollment Procedures

All students enroll for their courses themselves through the SOLAR (Student On-Line Access to Records) System. SOLAR allows students to enroll in courses, place themselves onto waitlists for specific closed courses, confirm enrollment or course changes, and receive a complete schedule summary, which includes times and locations.

Once you've been matriculated, you will be sent a Stony Brook ID number in your acceptance letter. Use this number to access the SOLAR website at . This site contains tutorials for new students.

Enrollment Period
The enrollment period begins in November for the Spring, and April for the summer and fall (exact dates will be posted on the SPD and Registrar websites). Prior to enrolling, you are required to log onto the SOLAR System and find your Enrollment Appointment. This appointment marks the first day and time that you are eligible to enroll. You can enroll after this time, but not before. You are strongly encouraged to enroll at your earliest available opportunity for best course selection.

A NOTE ABOUT SUMMER Session enrollment
When planning your program, please keep in mind that the Summer Session is not a full term. There are roughly half as many courses offered during the Summer as there are during Spring and Fall terms. As course availability is very limited, students should not plan to enroll in more than one or two courses.
