Course Changes (Drop-Add, Grade for Course Withdrawals)
Routine changes in the student's schedule must be made during the scheduled adjustment/drop/add periods for the semester or term. The precise deadlines can be found in the university academic calendar.
Except for Learning Support courses and Regents' Test remediation, a student may withdraw up to the midpoint of the semester without academic penalty. A grade of W is entered for such withdrawals. Except for cases approved by the dean of the college offering the withdrawn course, the only grade which is given after the mid-semester deadline is WF.
