- New Course Withdrawal Procedures:
Beginning Spring 2015, the student course withdrawal form will now require the signature
of the course instructor in addition to the academic advisor. All course withdrawals
will be processed by the deadline as established by the Registrar’s Office. For the
Spring 2015 semester, course withdrawals begin on Wednesday, January 28 and must be
processed in the Registrar’s Office no later than Friday, April 3.
Until now, course withdrawal forms only needed the advisor’s signature. It is the
hope that this procedural change will encourage meaningful conversation between the
student, advisor, and instructor. Students who do not feel comfortable or cannot obtain
the signature of the instructor may seek the signature of the Instructor’s Department
Chairperson. However, this action is only for extenuating circumstances and students
are encouraged to seek the instructor's signature when possible.
New Withdrawal forms have been produced and are available in the Registrar’s Office.
Old Withdrawal forms still in circulation may be utilized, but both signatures will
need to be included on the form.
The Registrar’s Office is dedicated to providing professional, efficient and courteous
service to meet the needs of all those it serves. Requests are addressed in a timely
fashion with adherence to academic policy, both SUNY and University, while ensuring
the privacy and security of student records.
As a service oriented office, its primary functions include:
Assisting students and faculty with the registration process
Developing course offerings in coordination with academic departments and deans
Processing grades and determining student status
Providing enrollment and degree verification services
Maintaining custodianship of student records
Providing and distributing academic transcripts for students and alumni
Incorporating the use of technology to enhance our services
Providing degree audit, degree conferral and diploma distribution
Sustaining a rapport with the campus community for effective coordination of services
