Preparing to Attend FLCC

Students having a conversation in the FLCC Cafe

Congratulations on your acceptance to FLCC and welcome to the Laker family! Take a moment to celebrate all that you’ve accomplished and the hard work that got you here.

Now that you’ve been accepted, it’s time for you to enroll as a student at FLCC. Our team of dedicated admissions counselors, One Stop Center specialists, and academic advisors are here to help you along the way. Please follow the steps below:

Begin the enrollment process by activating your WebAdvisor account. WebAdvisor is an online portal that allows you to access all types of FLCC-related information. Through WebAdvisor, you'll confirm your enrollment, schedule testing and registration appointments, check your financial aid status, print your schedule, view your grades, and much more.

To create your WebAdvisor account:

  1. Visit WebAdvisor and click on "Guest Access."
  2. Click "Obtain My User ID and Password" in the left column under the "User Account" heading.
  3. Enter your last name and FLCC ID number (found in your acceptance letter) or your social security number, and follow the tasks to obtain your temporary password. Your temporary password will be emailed to you, but we recommend that you also write it down. (Don’t select as your email address)

If you are unable to establish your WebAdvisor account, contact the Computer Help Desk at (585)785-1419 or the One Stop Center at (585)785-1000.

After activating your WebAdvisor account, you'll be asked to complete FLCC's Enrollment Checklist in WebAdvisor for newly accepted students. Some items on the checklist include:

  • Confirming your intent to enroll
  • Scheduling testing and registration appointments
  • Applying for financial aid
  • Submitting your transcripts and certificates of immunization
  • Paying your tuition bill
  • Submitting a certificate of residence

Your full checklist of items can be found in WebAdvisor. Please complete these enrollment steps as soon as possible. For any questions you may have, please contact the One Stop Center at (585) 785-1000.

FLCC needs your high school and/or college transcripts to advise on course registration and matriculate you into your degree program. Final, official transcripts showing date of graduation are required prior to the start of classes.

Students must request a copy directly from the high school and/or college(s) attended (check the school's website for transcript request instructions). The high school and/or college(s) should issue the official transcript to FLCC by:

  • Electronic submission to by an online service (i.e. eScript or Parchment)
  • Fax to (585) 785-1734 (high school documents only)
  • Physical mail to: Office of Admissions, Finger Lakes Community College, 3325 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua, NY 14424


Students may submit their scores by mail, email, or fax. The Admissions Office will verify passing status through the NYS GED verification web site once the official score is published.

Home School

FLCC offers a Home School verification form - to be completed by the superintendent of the school district. The student or school district may return it to the FLCC Admissions Office. Forms are available upon request. Please email the admissions office at If the school district offers a letter of verification, it should be mailed by the school district directly to FLCC.

All new students must meet with an academic advisor to create their first semester class schedule. Signing up for New Student Registration is part of your WebAdvisor checklist, and is available after activating your account. You can choose a one-on-one phone appointment, or to come to main campus or a campus center for a small group registration event. During New Student Registration we will:

  • Confirm that your selected degree program meets your academic and career goals
  • Review the sample schedule for your selected degree program
  • Select the number of classes/credits you'll need for the first semester
  • Create a class schedule using WebAdvisor
  • Examine prior credits from high school and/or other colleges and universities (when applicable)
