It is the student’s responsibility to initiate a change to their schedule. The student must contact their advisor for a Change of Registration form. The advisor will submit the form to the Registrar's Office for processing. Clarkson College will not be responsible for completed forms given to faculty or staff for submission.

From the College

Students in good standing who wish to discontinue enrollment at Clarkson Col­lege may do so by withdrawal. The student must see their advisor to initiate the process. Withdrawal means the student elects to leave the College for an indefinite period of time. Students who withdraw from the College and decide to return must re-apply for admission. They will be subject to the provisions of the catalog at the time of readmission. If the student is unable to complete the degree because of changes in the catalog, substitutions may be determined by the academic program/dean.
