Late Withdrawal Extenuating Circumstances

Below is a list of special circumstances in which a student can be approved for a late withdrawal from a summer course:

  • Significant and persistent documentable health and wellness related conditions that directly impact a student’s ability to attend and/or complete course work (if accommodations can mitigate the situation, students should work with the Accessibility Resource Center)
  • Loss of a parent and/or caregiver
  • Significant and unforeseeable circumstances
  • Hospitalization for mental health-related concerns
  • Participation in a Partial or Intensive Outpatient Program

The following circumstances do not fall under approval for a late withdrawal from a course:

  • Health and wellness concerns that can be resolved through accommodations offered with the Accessibility Resource Center
  • Credit card or other personal debt problems.
  • Failure to abide by withdrawal deadlines.
  • Short-term health and wellness-related concerns can be supported through The College’s withdrawal deadline.

For more information about withdrawal policies, please review TCNJ’s Involuntary Health or Safety Withdrawal Policy.

For more information in regards to Academic Related Concerns, go to TCNJ Cares.

The Records and Registration’s Add/Drop Deadline Policy is as follows:

  • After the Drop/Add period there are no refunds, meaning neither partial nor full refunds. It is the student’s responsibility to register for and appropriately withdraw from courses.
  • Non-attendance does not constitute a drop or withdrawal. Students are financially responsible for courses not dropped during the drop/add window.
