Class Schedules

Why Online?

SUNY Potsdam has joined the ranks of colleges nationwide in going paperless with its Schedule of Classes. To provide the most accurate class schedule information, the Schedule of Classes will only be published electronically.  The move from a printed publication to an online version not only provides the most up-to-date course information because class changes are viewed the same day, it also saves printing and paper costs, uses fewer resources and is better for our environment.  We appreciate your support in our efforts to serve you better and conserve resources!

When can I view the Schedule?

Upcoming Fall semester schedules are typically available online in mid-March and upcoming Spring semester schedules are available in mid-October.  E-mail announcements are circulated prior to class schedule online information availability.
