How to Register for a SUNY Schenectady College in the High School Course

Step 1

Students may register for all CHS classes at once. No need to submit multiple registration forms. Once registration is completed, students will be billed for the cost of their CHS course at a rate of $61 per credit. This is 1/3 the cost of SUNY Schenectady County Community College tuition. Bills will be sent to the student’s address that is on file with instructions on how to pay.

Tuition assistance is available for students. Please read the registration letter carefully for additional information. PDF of Registration Letter to Parents/Guardians
