Add / Drop & Withdraw

Add/Drop and Late Registration

Welcome to the new online Add/Drop registration for Bank Street College!

Spring 2018 online Add/Drop:
January 16, 2018, 9:00am –January 29, 2018, 9:00pm

Visit the registration portal in your my.bankstreet account during the posted dates to make changes to your schedule.

Non-degree students who do not have access to my.bankstreet are invited to come in person to register with the Registrar’s Office, Monday – Friday, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm on January 16 through January 29.

Fees

$15 each day of Add/Drop transactions

We invite students to make all necessary changes to their schedule during Add/Drop, but please keep in mind; a $15 fee is charged each day a student adds and/or drops courses. We recommend making all necessary changes at once, to reduce the number of fees you are charged.

Financial Aid

If you receive loans, grants, or other forms of financial aid, contact the Financial Aid Office before dropping or withdrawing from a course. Reducing your credit load may affect your eligibility. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 212-875-4408.

Deadline for Adding Courses

The deadline to register for most courses is the day before the second class meeting. For 1-credit courses and IMP2, the deadline to register is before the first class meeting.

Classes cannot be added over the phone or via email.

After the Deadline to Add Courses

Once the above deadlines pass, the online system prohibits any further registration for that particular course or IMP.

Once the Add/Drop period has ended, classes, fieldwork, all IMPs, and Matriculation Maintenance cannot be added. One-credit courses with a late start date after the end of the Add/Drop period can be added in person in the Registrar’s Office up until the first class meeting.

Deadline for Dropping Courses

Students can drop their courses any time during the Add/Drop period. The last day to drop a course from your schedule is the last day of Add/Drop.

Dropping a course is the only way to remove a class from your schedule.

Once the Add/Drop period has ended, classes, fieldwork, IMPs, and Matriculation Maintenance cannot be dropped. One-credit courses with a late start date after the end of the Add/Drop period can be dropped in person in the Registrar’s Office up until the first class meeting.

After the Deadline to Drop Courses

After the end of Add/Drop, your schedule remains intact. If you find you cannot attend a course after the end of the Add/Drop period, please view our information regarding Course Withdrawal.

Non-Attendance

Final grades are given to all registered students, regardless of attendance.

Please be aware, non-attendance does not remove a class from your schedule, or remove the tuition charges of the class from your student bill. Students who stop attending without taking the appropriate steps to either drop the class or withdraw are still responsible for the full cost of tuition and fees, and also risk jeopardizing their semester G.P.A.

Refunds and Reversal of Charges for Dropped Courses

When you register, a student bill is generated. You can view your bill through http://my.bankstreet.edu, in the “Course & Fee Statement.”

If you register for a class you are unable to attend, you must drop the class online through http://my.bankstreet.edu by the end of the Add/Drop period, in order to have your tuition charges reversed.

You are responsible for the tuition and fee charges generated by the classes on your semester schedule. If you do not attend a class and do not drop the class by the end of the Add/Drop period, you are responsible for the cost of the class.

Tuition charges are reversed for all classes dropped by the final day of the Add/Drop period. Any tuition payments made for a dropped class will be refunded by the Bursar’s Office, after the Add/Drop period. The Bursar's Office can be reached at (212) 961-3369.

Please note, several of our fees are non-refundable, regardless of final registration status. Please visit our Tuition and Fees page for more information.

If you miss the Add/Drop period but cannot continue in your class, we recommend turning in Course Withdrawal paperwork as soon as possible. The percentage of tuition refund for a course withdrawal is determined by the number of class meetings.

Course Withdrawals

Course Withdrawal Deadline
Spring 2018: Wednesday, March 7

Withdrawing from a course is an option if you find you cannot continue to attend a class after the last day of the Add/Drop period.

Withdrawing means you opt to take a G.P.A.-neutral final grade of Withdrawal (WD) for the class you cannot attend. Unlike dropping a class, the course remains on your record.

To request a Course Withdrawal, submit the Course Withdrawal form to the Registrar's Office by the set deadline (above). Forms can be emailed to registrar@bankstreet.edu.

There is no withdrawing from IMPs. Students who did not drop an IMP and do not participate, receive the G.P.A.-neutral grade of NT (Never Attended) and are required to re-register and pay for another IMP in a future semester.

Tuition and Fees for Withdrawn Courses

If you miss the Add/Drop period but cannot continue in your class, we recommend turning in Course Withdrawal paperwork as soon as possible. The percentage of tuition refund for a course withdrawal is determined by the number of class meetings.

Please see the Spring 2018 Refund Schedule

Please note several of our fees are non-refundable, regardless of final registration status. Please visit our Tuition and Fees page for more information.

Withdrawing From the Semester

Students with extenuating medical circumstances forcing them to withdraw from all courses for the semester are encouraged to contact the Registrar's Office at registrar@bankstreet.edu. Please be aware we require medical documentation from a third party for Medical Withdrawals.

Not Attending Class

Students who stop attending class and who do not submit a Course Withdrawal form to the Registrar's Office by the above date, are given a grade of No Pass (NP) and are responsible for all tuition and fees.

To receive a full tuition refund, any class must be officially dropped by the last day of the Add/Drop period.
