  • A student who notifies the college of his or her withdrawal or leave of absence in writing and in accordance with the college’s withdrawal policy is eligible for an adjustment to tuition, room, and board charges in accordance with the following schedules. Non-attendance does not constitute a withdrawal from a class or the college.

    Any student receiving Federal (Title IV) financial aid may be required to return a portion of their aid to the granting agency if they separate from Russell Sage College prior to the end of a semester. Any adjustment for tuition, room, or board charges may be less than the amount of aid that must be returned and may create a liability to the college that must be paid by the student.

    The date of official academic withdrawal as recorded by the Registrar’s Office is the basis of all adjustments for tuition, room, and board charged. It is important that the student adhere to the following processes to ensure that the correct adjustment is applied to their account.

    To withdraw from a class

    To withdraw from a class, the student must complete the necessary forms and submit them to the Registrar’s Office.

    To withdraw from the college or request a leave of absence

    All resident and non-resident undergraduate students must complete the necessary forms and submit them to Student Life. Students required to withdraw from the college for disciplinary reasons are not entitled to any adjustment to tuition or room charges.

    Students in graduate programs must notify the Dean of their graduate school. Resident students must notify the office of Residence Life.

    All students must officially drop their classes at The Office of Student Services.
