The SOLAR System
Stony Brook’s student online access system, the SOLAR System, at http://www.stonybrook.edu/solarsystem , provides students with access to course information, semester class schedules, class registration, unofficial transcripts, financial aid, billing and payment information, as well as links to other important sites such as academic calendars. Access is through the student’s Stony Brook ID and password.
SOLAR System Messaging
When students log onto the site, they can also access messages sent through the University’s messaging system, by which students are notified of important information specific to their own registration, record, or financial account. Messages may include important registration information, such as: the student has been enrolled into a class from the automatic waitlist, a class has been cancelled, or the student has been given permission to register for a course. Students should log onto their SOLAR System pages frequently for important updates, especially during registration periods and at the beginning of classes.
Students may also maintain personal information, such as an e-mail address, through the site. Students are encouraged to maintain a current, active e-mail address to ensure receiving communications from University offices and departments. The Registrar staff may not reset SOLAR passwords. To reset a SOLAR password, click on 'SOLAR Password Help' on the SOLAR homepage.
