Once the add/drop period ends, students may no longer add courses to their schedules. They may, however, withdraw from a course but with academic and financial liabilities. Students can withdraw directly through their Self-Service Student account. A student will receive a W grade for any courses that are withdrawn. A grade of W is shown on the student's transcript but does not affect their cumulative grade point average.
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, the student must contact the Director of 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 the student notifies the College.
Student status refers to the course load (in terms of credits) a student is taking during a given semester:
Less than half time: 1–5 credits
Half time: 6–8 credits
3/4 time: 9–11 credits
Full time: 12–or above
Graduate (as of Fall 2016)
Less than half time: 1 -2 credits
Half time: 3 credits
3/4 time: 4 -5 credits
Full time: 6 credits
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.
Students must fill out all personal information on the in-school deferment form and fax it directly to the National Student Clearinghouse at 703-733-4180. 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.
Self-Service now has an online feature "ClearingHouse Enrollment Services - MYHUB" that enables students to obtain their enrollment and student loan information, including enrollment verification certificates, at no charge.
