Charges for Withdrawing or Dropping Courses
When you register, you assume responsibility for paying all tuition and fee charges associated with your registration. If you wish to drop a course OR formally withdraw from the University, you MUST login to the MYUAlbany student portal and drop your courses. Unless you drop or withdraw from your courses by the published deadlines below, you must pay tuition and fee charges even if you did not attend a single class. Failure to do so may result in your obligation to pay for courses you did not attend. Dropping courses could result in a reduction of your financial aid award, which would increase the amount owed.Please view the tuition liability deadlines for drops/withdrawals.
For the Winter and Summer sessions, tuition and fees for matriculated Grad and Grad MBA students are capped at 12 credits. Undergraduate and non-matriculated grad students are charged per credit for the number of credits being taken with no cap for total cost.
For Fall and Spring sessions, full-time tuition is charged once you reach 12 credits. For degree students, there are no additional charges for a credit load above 12 credits in the fall or spring semesters.
Please note that the University Fee and SEVIS fee are non-refundable for course withdrawals bearing an official drop/withdrawal date of the first day of the session or later.
