Dropping Last Class

Before and during the add/drop period of the fall and spring semesters, students cannot drop their last course via the web*. Students dropping their last class are essentially withdrawing from PSU and must contact the academic student advocate to finalize their withdrawal. A withdrawal survey and a PSU withdrawal form must be completed. The completed withdrawal form should be returned to the academic student advocate, located in Frost House. To access the form and the survey, please visit the Academic Forms section of the Registrar’s Office website (campus.plymouth.edu/registrar) and select Student Info.

Any course dropped during the add/drop period will be removed from the student’s transcript. However, if the student attended a class(es) during the add/drop period, the student’s bill will be recalculated based on the student’s last date of attendance.  If the student never attended, the bill will be adjusted to reflect any outstanding charges (i.e. housing, dining, etc).

See the Course Withdrawal section for adjustments made after the add/drop period ends.

Graduate students who are planning on registering for the next part-of-term or semester (fall, spring, summer) are encouraged to discuss options with the academic student advocate.**

*Students who are only in one course, and are seeking to drop one course and add another, are encouraged to use the conditional drop/add option when changing courses to remain enrolled and not be seen as withdrawing from PSU.

**Graduate students may remain unenrolled, but active, for a period of 12 consecutive months.

Enrollment Verification

Plymouth State University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide enrollment verifications.

Enrollment Certificates may be obtained (at the earliest) two weeks prior to the start of the fall and spring sessions from the NSC website.  Students may access the service by logging into myPlymouth and choosing the Enrollment Verification link in Self Service.

For verifications prior to that, students should submit a copy of their schedule – also obtained via myPlymouth – to the requester.

Loan Deferment

Plymouth State University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide enrollment information for loan deferments

Submit the entire deferment form to the registrar’s office.

Audit
