Register for Your Course(s) - Now that you have applied simply wait up to two business days and then go back to our website to register for your course(s) at Student Online Services ( To log in and register, your User ID will be your Social Security number (no dashes or spaces) and your Pin Number will be your Date of Birth--see example on User Login page for format. You must register for your course(s) at HCCC before you gain access to your course(s) at the ANGEL site.

  • Once logged into Student Online Services (SOS), you should retrieve your HCCC Assigned College ID Number so that you can determine your MyHerkimer Username and your ANGEL Username. This number may also be used instead of your Social Security Number when logging into SOS and when calling the campus. Once logged into SOS, select Student Services, then Registration, then Student Schedule (at some point you will be prompted for the term).  Your HCCC Assigned College ID will be located in the upper right-hand corner to the left of your name, it begins with an “H.” 

International Students or Applicants without Social Security Numbers: If you are an International Student who does not have a Social Security number, or a student who chooses not to provide your Social Security Number, our Registrar's Office will contact you at the email address you provided with your College ID so that you can log in to Student Online Services to register for your course(s). Please be sure to check your Spam or Junk Mail email folders as institution emails often filter to these.

Non-Matriculated students do not need to take Placement Exams and are not required to prove the completion of pre-requisite courses. If you receive a “Pre-Requisite or Test Score Error” at the time of registration, please send an email to with your Name, College ID or SS#, the Course Name(s) and Number(s) you want registered, and if available, we will register the course(s) for you and reply to let you know if it was successful.

3. Pay your Bill - Once you have registered, please be aware that you can now pay your bill online using Student Online Services (you must choose the proper semester option).

3a. If you are a New York State Resident you must obtain your Certificate of Residence - All NY State residents must provide a Certificate of Residence no later than 30 days after classes start in order to avoid an additional charge (certificates cannot be dated any earlier than 60 days before the course begins). This is a requirement for all New York State Community Colleges. The Bursar's Office does prefer to receive the Certificate of Residence before your class starts, however if you are making payment and do not have your certificate yet, you can subtract the Non-Resident Tuition charge from your bill. As long as a Certificate of Residence is provided to the Bursar's Office within 30 days from the start of your course(s), the charge entitled "Tuition - No Residency" is removed. Failure to provide a certificate within this timeframe will result in you having to pay the additional charge.
