Course Changes (Drops/Adds)

Beginning the first day of classes, students must process a Course Change Notice to drop one or more, but not all, courses for a given term. This form is also used to add courses after the beginning of the term.

If a student is dropping all courses for a given term, a College Withdrawal Form must be used.

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. SUNY required fee must be paid to process the form. Off campus students can make this payment via the Online Payment portal.

Non-degree students do not need an advisor's or Dean's signature, and are not subject to the $20 fee.

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 Drop/Add 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.
