Students who wish to withdraw from a course must officially do so. Students must drop courses prior to the start of the semester to receive a full refund. The last day to drop and remove a class from the official transcript is the end of the third week* of the semester. After the third week of the semester, drops are considered withdrawals and are recorded with a grade of “W” on the transcript. The last day to withdraw from a course is three weeks* prior to the last day of classes. Discontinuance of class attendance or notice to the instructor does not constitute an authorized withdrawal.
Students may elect to declare audit status instead of withdrawing. To declare audit status during the term, the student must obtain the instructor's written approval. The final day to declare audit status is five weeks prior to the last day of classes. Once approved for change to audit status, the requirements of Academic rule III.C apply.
Students that need to withdraw completely from all courses in a given term are strongly encouraged to meet with a Counselor in the Counseling Center, located in Coulter Hall. Before officially withdrawing, be sure to:
Failure to attend class does not result in an automatic withdrawal from that class. A withdrawal from a course may affect your residence hall eligibility, ability to participate in athletics, veteran’s benefits, graduation, financial aid, and tuition benefits. Please be sure to discuss any withdrawals or concerns with your advisor or with a counselor in the Counseling Center.
Audit status should be declared at the time of registration. Audit students must meet all course prerequisites and co-requisites, if applicable, or receive permission of instructor. Auditing a course means that the student enrolls and attends the class, but does not receive a grade or earn credit. Students who choose to audit will not be allowed to take the final exam. Mid-term and other coursework evaluation will be at the discretion of the instructor. The "AU" designation will be awarded in the case of satisfactory attendance, as determined by the instructor. A change from audit to credit status may not be made. Students may audit a course only one time.
A student whose high school class has not yet graduated, and who wishes to take classes at Onondaga Community College as a non-matriculated (non-degree seeking) student, may do so under the following conditions:
Exceptions to the requirements outlined in 1, 2, and 3 above may be authorized in special circumstances by the Director of Registration and Records with the approval of the Associate Vice President of Enrollment Management.

Senior citizens (60 or older) wishing to audit courses at no tuition charge may do so on a space available basis. Senior audit must be declared at the time of registration. Applicable course fees are payable at the time of registration.
Senior registration is held the Friday before the semester begins, regardless of the start date of the individual course sections. For example, if a section starts two months into the fall semester, senior registration is held the Friday before the given full semester begins.
Senior citizen students that wish take advantage of registration (including waitlisting), prior to senior registration day, will be considered traditionally registered. That is, senior audit status will not be declared and full tuition and applicable fees will be assessed. Seniors who would like to receive a grade in the course may register through our traditional registration process. This will produce a bill and will need to be paid in full.
