What is deregistration?
If a student fails to attend class and fails to explain their absence, or lacks the required prerequisites for a class, their instructor is allowed to deregister that student.
Students can also be deregistered for failure to submit required immunization and health documentation.
Once a student is deregistered, they are no longer enrolled in that class. Students can check their enrollment status at any time on MyUAlbany.
Students are responsible for attending the classes they’ve enrolled in and are also responsible for ensuring they have the required prerequisite(s) before registering for a class.
There are several risks associated with deregistration, such as:
You may still receive a W grade.
You may still owe money for the course, depending on when you are deregistered. Please review Student Financial Services’ Tuition Liability Charts for detailed information.
Your financial aid may be affected. Some aid programs require full-time status (at least 12 credits for undergraduate students), while others do not. Dropping credits may also affect your satisfactory academic progress. You should consult the Office of Financial Aid if you are deregistered from a class.
You may not have time to add another class, depending on when you are deregistered. Check the Academic Calendar for Add deadlines.
