Students are given the opportunity to change their course schedule during the Add/Drop period, which lasts for approximately one week at the beginning of each semester. Please check the Academic Calendar for the Add/Drop deadline for each semester. Changes made during this period are not reflected on the student's permanent academic record. Most students can Add and Drop online through ServiceHub/Student Planning.
Full time undergraduates are required to carry a minimum 12-credit course load by the end of the Add/Drop period. Failure to do so may jeopardize eligibility for benefits available to full-time students (e.g. financial aid, scholarships, health coverage, etc.) and will violate campus housing occupancy policies.
Withdrawal from Classes
Once the add/drop period is over, students have the option to withdraw from courses until the withdrawal deadline for that term as published in the Academic Calendar. Course withdrawals will be documented permanently on a student's transcript, notated by a grade of "W". A "W" grade is non-punitive and does not affect the GPA. All students must also investigate the impact that course withdrawals may have on their financial aid eligibility! Withdrawals cannot be submitted online via Student Planning. Please use the appropriate form below:
IMPORTANT: If withdrawals are processed AFTER a semester's tuition refund schedule has passed, students are responsible for all tuition charges and fees! Students may submit a Bursar Tuition Appeal to the Student Accounts Office for consideration of special circumstances connected to their withdrawal. Visit the Bursar Tuition Appeals Committee web page for more information.
Decision Not to Attend / Drop All Classes Before a Term Begins
Students who decide not to attend classes for which they are registered are NOT AUTOMATICALLY DROPPED from their classes! Students must follow the procedures below to completely drop a registration or withdraw from the College. Courses that remain on your registration will be billed to you and you will be fully responsible for all tuition charges and fees!
Undergraduates: Student Planning will prevent an undergraduate from removing the last course section from their registration, up to the end of the Add/Drop period. If you will not be attending Manhattanville College, please contact the Office of Academic Advisement at 914.323.5353 or firstname.lastname@example.org. An Academic Advisor will formalize withdrawal plans with you. Once the procedure is completed, the Registrar's Office will remove all courses from your registration.
Graduate and Doctoral Students: Student Planning allows graduate and doctoral students to remove every course from their schedule and empty their registration up to the end of the Add/Drop period. If you will not be attending Manhattanville College, drop all of your courses and contact your advisor or appropriate program office to alert them of your intention not to attend.
Auditors are permitted to register for classes after each term's "Add/Drop" period concludes, on a space-available basis only. Please refer to the online Academic Calendar or posted notices to obtain the exact dates per semester. Students may use ServiceHub to view available courses. A number of filters are available to view our course schedules.
All payments are due at time of registration. The auditing fee can be found here. Auditors also pay the customary registration fee.
