How do I withdraw from a course?
Once the add/drop period ends, students may no longer add courses into their schedules. They may, however, withdraw from a course but with academic and financial liabilities. Students wishing to withdraw from a course or courses after the add/drop period has ended must complete a withdrawal from course form. On this form, the student may indicate which courses he or she would like to withdraw from. According to specific time intervals (indicated in the appropriate semester's course bulletin), a student will receive a W grade. A grade of W is shown on the student's transcript but does not affect her cumulative grade point average.
How can I withdraw completely from Manhattan College?
In order to withdraw from Manhattan College, a student must complete a withdrawal from college form. This form is to be used only when withdrawing completely from the school. The student must fill out the form with their class schedule. The date the form is submitted determines whether or not the College will recalculate the student's tuition, fees and financial aid.
What is my student status?
Student status refers to the course load (in terms of credits) a student is taking during a given semester:
- Less than half time: 0–5 credits
- Half time: 6–8 credits
- 3/4 time: 9–11 credits
- Full time: 12–or above
- Less than half time: 1-4 credits
- Part time: 5-8 credits
- Full time: 9-or above
Students should pay close attention to their student status, especially if they are receiving any type of financial aid. Loans, grants, TAP and scholarships from Manhattan College have specific guidelines regarding student status. Falling below a certain status may put a student in jeopardy of losing aid.
How can I change my address?

My insurance company/lender needs proof that I am still in school. How can I get this?
Students must fill out all personal information before submitting the forms to the Registrar's Office.

If not, the student may, if they wish, take the completed form and submit it to their provider or lender by their own means.
