Class Registration

Students at the School of Public Health are assigned an advisor at the beginning of their first semester of study.  Contact your department for assistance with registering for your first semester of classes. You should complete your registration before June 30th.

To register for classes each semester, students must first meet with their advisor. Students will then obtain an Advisement Verification Number (AVN) from their department, along with class permission numbers, also referred to as Section Key Numbers (SKNs), for the individual classes they wish to take. These numbers are required in order to register for classes on MyUAlbany.

MyUAlbany is a University-wide online portal used for scheduling classes, managing financial aid and tuition payments, as well as organizing many other components of University life. MyUAlbany can be accessed at by clicking on the “MyUAlbany” link at the top of the University at Albany homepage. Once you have set up your NET ID and password, you will be able to access MyUAlbany.
