It is critical that you follow the proper withdrawal procedure should you decide not to attend one or more classes or to discontinue attendance once you have begun. Students who are dropping their entire course load may not use the Schedule Adjustment Form to do so. (See Tuition Liability section below.) Undergraduate degree-seeking students must process a Voluntary Withdrawal form with the Student Development Office (Netzer 119).
Continuing education students and graduate students (degree and non-degree) must report their withdrawal to the Office of Continuing Education/Graduate Studies (Netzer 132/133). You must follow withdrawal procedures if you decide not to attend one or more courses that you have registered for. If not attending at all, notify the Continuing Education Office, in writing, before the first class session. You will not be charged under these circumstances, and any monies paid will be refunded. If you are in attendance but later withdraw from any course, obtain a withdrawal form from the Continuing Education Office, have the instructor(s) sign the form, and submit the completed form to the Continuing Education Office. Liability for Tuition and Fees depends on the day of withdrawal, as noted below.
If you complete the withdrawal process before the first day of classes, you will not be liable for any charges, and any monies paid will be refunded. If you withdraw on or after the first day of classes, you will have liability (i.e. If you have paid, your refund will be reduced. If you have not paid, you owe the college.) On or after the first day of class of any course, you are liable for the College Fee of $.85 per hour. Tuition and fee liability is calculated based on the SUNY mandated schedule at the end of this section.
Federal Financial Aid Eligibility
Federal financial aid is based on the percentage of time the student is in attendance. Eligibility will be calculated as of the day of withdrawal and any unearned portion will be returned to the aid program. The student will be billed for any aid disbursed to the College that is not earned. This calculation will occur whether a student officially withdraws or simply stops attending classes. Please consult the Financial Aid Office for further information.
Tuition Liability Schedule for full semester courses:
January 17 to January 23, 2018: 0% Tuition Liability
Note: For full-time students, the week begins on the first day of classes for the semester, and ends seven calendar days thereafter. For less than full-time students, the week begins on the day of your first class meeting, and ends seven calendar days thereafter. If course meets once a week, student has no tuition liability if they withdraw prior to the second class meeting. Please note any unpaid debts to the College may incur interest charges and other fees.
