College/Course Withdrawal

Registrar’s Office
Room A-101, Ext. 5136

Withdrawal from the College

Students who find it necessary to withdraw from the college may do so using self-service in CUNYfirst. The date that the withdrawal is completed in CUNYfirst is considered the official date of withdrawal from the college. No portion of the Student Activity, Special, Penalty or Miscellaneous Fees is refundable except when a student’s registration is cancelled or when the college cancels courses.

From a Course

After consultation with an academic advisor, a student may withdraw from a course using self-service in CUNYfirst. The date that the withdrawal is completed in CUNYfirst is considered the official date of withdrawal from the college, NOT the last date of class attendance.

If a student withdraws from a course during the first 17 days of the fall or spring session (or the first seven [7] days of the winter or summer module), that course will be deleted from the student’s transcript.

If a student withdraws from a course after the deletion period but before a deadline that approximately coincides with completion of 2/3 of the session (see Academic Calendar for specific date), the student will receive a “W” grade for that course.

If a student registers for a course, does not attend classes, and fails to officially withdraw from the course, the student will be assigned a “WN” grade for that course.
