Next Steps

Before the Semester Starts

It’s normal to feel a little nervous before classes start. Here are some tips to help you get and feel ready.

  • Start using and monitoring your Plattsburgh email account daily. Once you are registered for classes, all official communication with professors, academic advisors, campus offices or your support team must be done with your @plattsburgh.edu email account.
  • Once you receive your course syllabi, begin preparing for your course. Review and purchase any required materials and communicate with your professors, academic advisors, department chair or success team with any questions or concerns you have.
  • Be proactive — Create a weekly study schedule to ensure you have enough time set aside for each class. Write down all important dates for assignments, assessments and project deadlines.
  • Familiarize yourself with Brightspace by reviewing the student tutorials within Brightspace.
  • Get to know the MyPlattsburgh portal with this helpful walkthrough.
  • Watch your MyPlattsburgh notifications for any outstanding checklist or to-do items before the semester starts.
