STUDENTS WHO ARE CONSIDERING WITHDRAWING FROM A COURSE, A TERM, OR FROM THE PROGRAM MUST MEET WITH THE POSTBACC PROGRAM DIRECTOR TO DISCUSS THIS OPTION IN GREATER DETAIL.
PLEASE NOTE: You do not need to proceed with the 'Semester Withdrawal' process if you are dropping individual classes and will remain enrolled in other classes. You may instead drop/add individual classes on Albert in compliance with the NYU Academic Calendar and the Withdrawal (W) Schedule.
You may not de-enroll yourself from ALL of your classes without completing the NYU Semester Withdrawal Form. The Semester Withdrawal Form can be completed on Albert. The link is available from the My Academics section of Student Center. You should proceed with this process only if you want to withdraw from ALL of your classes for the current semester. Complete the form if you are doing any of the following:
- Term Withdrawal
- Complete Withdrawal from the University
Leave Of Absences:
Students who are considering a leave of absence MUST meet with the Postbacc Program Director to discuss this in greater detail.
For the policy on refunds for tuition & fees when dropping courses or completely withdrawing, please refer to the Bursar's Tuition Refund Schedule website.
Note to Financial Aid Recipients: For the purposes of determining the refund of federal student aid funds, any student who withdraws from NYU for any reason during the first 60% of any term will be subject to a pro rata refund schedule which will be used to determine the amount of federal funds a student has earned at the date of submission of the Withdrawal Form. A student who withdraws after the 60% point has earned 100% of the Title IV funds, if otherwise eligible. NYU aid will be adjusted according to University and department policy.
IF YOU ARE NOT CERTAIN about any of the conditions above, or about your decision to withdraw, please consult with the Postbacc Program Director and the Office of Financial Aid before proceeding.
