If you determine it is not possible or in your best interest to complete the coursework in which you are currently enrolled, you can withdraw from Relay.
To initiate a withdrawal, you should do the following:
- First talk with your advisor who will then refer you to your campus Dean, campus program operations team, and/or the Office of Student Financial Services to determine how and when to withdraw from Relay. Please also note that withdrawing from Relay while pursuing your teaching certification may have implications regarding your certification status.
- Discuss the implications of a withdrawal with your school leaders and applicable partner programs (such as NYCTF or TFA). There may be serious financial, professional, and academic consequences to suspending enrollment in the program.
- After learning the implications of early withdrawal from the program and you decide to still withdraw, you would then complete a withdrawal form to the Registrar's Office (also available in the GEN-101 course on Canvas). Please keep in mind of the census dates when you submit your withdrawal.
- Leaving on or before the census date: Courses will not appear on your transcript and you will not be responsible for your term tuition
- Leaving after the census date: Courses will appear on your transcript with a grade of Withdrawn(W) and you will be held to either full or half of your tuition for the term
- Leaving at the end of term: Courses will appear on your transcript with the grades received from your last enrolled term and you will be responsible for full tuition
You are still enrolled at Relay, with corresponding academic, financial, and administrative responsibilities, until the withdrawal form is processed and you receive an email confirmation from the Registrar’s Office.
The Office of Student Financial Services will follow up with you about how to pay any outstanding Relay tuition and fees.
