A student may withdraw from a course during the first ten weeks of the semester by logging into their CUNYFirst account and withdrawing from the course.  A course that is withdrawn from during the first three weeks will be dropped and will not appear on the record.  A grade of W will be assigned to courses that are withdrawn from between the fourth and tenth week. A student who wishes to withdraw from a course after the tenth week must petition the appropriate Committee on Course and Standing.  The student must present, in writing, satisfactory reasons for requesting permission to withdraw. It is the responsibility of the student to refer to the academic calendar for the appropriate deadlines and to officially withdraw from a class that they are not attending.  Any student who fails to attend a course for a significant part of the semester may be given the grade of WU by the instructor.
