How To Notify Us Officially That You Will
Not Attend Classes
When you register for a class, St. John’s University considers
your registration to be a clear indication of your intention to
attend that class. If you change your mind about attending class or
if circumstances prevent you from attending, you must notify us
officially of your change in status.
There are two ways to notify us officially that you will not
attend a class for which you have registered.
Dropping A Class/Adding a
The first way is to drop the class. You can drop a class the same
way that you registered for it – via the St. John’s University Information System. Web registration
is available through the last day of the first week of the
semester. After this date, we shut off the system.
Please note that the last day of the first week of the semester
is also the last date for adding a class.
During the second and third weeks of the semester, you may
still drop a class, but you need permission from your dean’s
office. Bring this permission to the Office of the Registrar and we
will drop the class for you. There is no other way to drop a class
during this period.
Classes dropped through the first three weeks of the semester do
not appear on your transcript.
- You may drop classes via the Web as long as you are not
dropping all your classes.
- The Web will NOT allow you to drop your last
class. If you have only one class, the Web will not allow you
to drop it.
- If you want to drop all your classes, you must inform your
dean of this in writing.
Withdrawing From A Class
After the last day of the third week of the semester, you
can no longer drop a class. Any class for which you are still
registered on the first day of the fourth week of the semester will
remain on your transcript. From this point on, you may withdraw
from a class.
To withdraw from one or more of your classes, you must contact
your dean’s office. If possible, you should visit the office in
person so that someone can discuss this decision with you. If you
cannot visit the office, you must put your request in writing.
Requests made through the deadline indicated in the academic
calendar will be honored. You will receive a mark of WD in these
courses. This mark does not calculate into your GPA.
There is no guarantee that a request for withdrawal after the
date indicated in the academic calendar will be approved. If a
request after the deadline is not approved, you will receive a
grade in the course.
- Dropping or withdrawing from a class is an academic
action initiated by students. If you do not drop a class during the
first three weeks of the semester it will remain on your transcript
whether or not you attended the class, even if you are
subsequently allowed to withdraw from the class.
- You may be entitled to a full or partial refund of tuition
paid for a class. Refunds are based on the official date on which
you drop or withdraw whether via the Web or through the office
of your dean.
- Your dean may not indicate as the date of drop or
withdrawal a date prior to your official written request.
You can find additional information on refunds from the
Office of the Bursar.
