Consultation with your Advising Team is strongly recommended prior to completing and submitting the forms listed below.
There are two mechanisms for students to drop courses: Drop and Official Withdrawal. During the change of program period, students must log in to CUNYfirst to drop a course or courses. The course will not appear on the student’s transcript. You may however be responsible for part of the tuition cost, depending on how long you attended and were registered for class. If you need to withdraw from a course or the college after change of program (that is, your major), you must go to CUNYfirst. If you withdraw during the official withdrawal period, you will receive a “W” as a grade and will be responsible for all tuition charges. Instructions and student guides are available on: http://www.laguardia.edu/CUNYfirst/Student-Guides.
Students who wish to change their major must file the appropriate form. Changing your major is an important decision and should be discussed with your Advising Team prior to making any changes. The procedure to change your major is as follows:
