Student Enrollment and Registration

Updates & Announcements

[As of 6/22/2021]

The course schedule for the fall 2021 semester is now available via the Directory of Classes. Be advised that throughout the summer, course offerings are subject to change up until the first day of classes. Students will be notified of any cancellations or other changes that occur to courses for which they are registered.

For current continuing students and new Advanced Standing and Transfer students, registration for the fall 2021 semester (as well as the summer intensive for new Advanced Standing Students) begins Monday, June 28th and closes Friday, July 9th at 9:30 p.m. During this time, registration windows will be open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The add/drop period will begin on Monday, August 30th, and will continue through Friday, September 17th (excluding weekends and the Labor Day holiday).

As you plan for the term, please keep in mind the following:

  • Residential Campus Students: Residential students are expected to be in New York City for the coming academic year.
  • All students who will access campus must complete the COVID-19 vaccine process at least 14 days before first accessing University facilities or participating in in-person University-approved activities to ensure they are considered fully vaccinated at the time of first access.
  • The Office of Student Services will register all students for their appropriate section of Field Education (either T6010 or T6020).
  • Students will be assigned an advisor at the start of the term. In the meantime, students are required to use Stellic, the degree audit tool to manage their course plan. Please review the Stellic Student Guide to begin planning for the fall semester. Study plans can be found in the materials attached.
  • Please check SSOL for any holds that have been applied to your student record. Students with a registration hold (ex. an account balance or immunization hold) will not be permitted to register under any circumstances. If you have an account balance hold, you will have received a number of notifications from Student Financial Services. Please review those communications for more information about lifting the hold.

THE INS AND OUTS OF ENROLLMENT AND REGISTRATION

Program Withdrawals, Leaves & Readmission

Students can request a leave of absence prior to the start of a term or during a term. When a student takes a leave of absence during a term, this action also is considered a withdrawal. Withdrawal is defined as the dropping of one’s entire academic program in a given term after the first day of classes of the term. When a student requests a leave of absence, their intent is to resume their studies based on an approved timeframe. However, if a student requests to withdraw from the program, their enrollment at the School is terminated, and they must reapply via the standard admissions process should they wish to re-enroll at a later date.

Withdrawing from the School of Social Work after the start of the semester can have implications for financial aid, and students are encouraged to speak with the Office of Financial Aid about any financial consequences. Any student who wishes to withdraw from the School of Social Work must notify the Office of Advising in writing and subsequently complete the LOA/Withdrawal Form. Neither notification to instructors of a plan to withdraw nor failure to attend classes will constitute an official withdrawal from the school of Social Work.

It is recommended that students discuss their LOA or Withdrawal request with the Office of Advising PRIOR to submitting this form.

Students will be held responsible for related tuition and fees [See Refund Schedule below].
