Course Changes (Drops/Adds)

For more information on withdrawing/dropping Winter and Summer sessions please visit the withdrawal page for our Summer and Winter courses.

Students matriculated in a SUNY Canton program may add or drop courses themselves through their UcanWeb account using their registration code provide by their advisor. If the student receives an add error, the instructor must give permission to the student by either signing a course change notice or submitting an email permission to the student who will forward to registrar@canton.edu.

Beginning the fourth day of classes for any Spring or Fall term, SUNY Canton degree students must process a Course Change Notice to drop one or more, but not all, or to add any courses. If a student is dropping all courses for a given term, a College Withdrawal Form must be used.

Students not in a SUNY Canton degree program will complete a course change notice if dropping all courses for the semester.

All information on the Course Change Notice is to be completed by the student. The student must sign the form.

If a student is adding a course(s), the instructor(s) must give permission for the student to be added. This permission can be secured either by their signature on the form, or by email to the student to present with the completed course change notice.

All information on the Course Change Notice is to be completed by the student. The student must sign the form.

If a student is adding a course(s), the instructor(s) must give permission for the student to be added. This permission can be secured either by their signature on the form, or by email to the student with a copy to the Registrar.

The Academic Dean of the program in which the student is matriculated must also give permission for all course withdrawals and additions. Once all required permissions are obtained, a $20 required fee must be paid to process the form. Off campus students can make this payment via the Online Payment portal.

Students who are not matriculated at SUNY Canton do not need an advisor's or Dean's signature, and are subject to the $20 fee. Payments not made at the time the form is submitted will be added as a charge on the student’s account and will prevent access to grades, transcripts, etc.

Students may not withdraw from courses (receiving a grade of "W") during the last ten instructional days of a full semester, exclusive of the final exam period.

For courses less than a semester in length, withdrawal is allowed prior to completion of 85% of the class session. (See College Catalog, for full policy.)

The last day for withdrawal from Summer and Winter terms is posted with information for those terms.

Properly completed, signed forms accompanied by payment of the course change fee must be received by the Registrar's Office before the close of business on the last day for withdrawal for the term or course.
