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?

Students currently enrolled in Manhattan College who wish to withdraw from the College, effectively ending their status as matriculated students, must complete the required Manhattan College Withdrawal Form. An appointment should be made with the appropriate Academic Advisor/Assistant Dean to have an exit interview and to complete the required form. If a medical withdrawal is requested, student must see Dr. Terence Hannigan, Director of the The Counseling Center & Health Services. This form must be completely filled out or students will not be eligible for tuition adjustments and may be responsible for paying back any financial aid received from the College. The effective date for a student’s withdrawal is the date that student notifies the college.

What is my student status?

Student status refers to the course load (in terms of credits) a student is taking during a given semester:

Undergraduate:

  • Less than half time: 1–5 credits
  • Half time: 6–8 credits
  • 3/4 time: 9–11 credits
  • Full time: 12–or above 

Graduate:

  • Less than half time: 1-4 credits
  • Half time: 5-6 credits
  • 3/4 Time: 7-8 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?

All address changes must be submitted in writing by the student, either by means of a letter, fax or by filling out a change of address form.

 

I have an insurance/loan deferment form that needs to be filled out, how can I do this?

Students must fill out all personal information before submitting the forms to the Registrar's Office. If the form is asking for the institutional seal, it must be mailed directly from Manhattan College to lenders or providers. If not, the student may, if they wish, take the completed form and submit it to their provider or lender by their own means.
