To resolve registration issues after the registration appeal period has ended, submit the School of Education Dean’s Request. Please note, a request requires extenuating circumstances. Students are not approved if two or more classes have been missed.
To appeal a registration or financial issue, please use the Dean’s Request form. Please note, a course refund request requires extenuating circumstances. 100% refunds are only considered for students who have never attended a course. Fees are non-refundable. The review adheres to the colleges published deadlines for add/drop and refunds. Students are only permitted one request during the time in their program.
Graduate Time Extension
All matriculated graduate students who have exceeded the five year time limit allowed for the completion of their degree, are required to file an application for time extension. Requests to extend courses that are 7 -10 years old must be accompanied by a statement affirming that the content knowledge gained in the courses has been utilized via continued study or through professional experience. Requests to extend courses 10 years and over will not be approved. Please complete the form, sign digitally and upload to the School of Education form uploader. We will support with gaining any additional required signatures.
Incomplete Grade Contract
A grade of incomplete (INC) will be given only to students who are doing passing work who need to complete a paper, exam, or other project. When an incomplete is given, the contract form must be, signed by the instructor and the student, a copy given to the student, and the original filed in the department office.
For field-based courses, including student teaching and practicum, incomplete grades can be given only for papers, projects, or exams not completed. If the field experience itself will not be complete by the end of the semester, the student will be given the appropriate grade and asked to register to repeat the course.
Incompletes will not be given to students who need to repeat a course or to students who are failing a course. Students with personal or family situations that result in their not being able to complete a course and/or submit course assignments should withdraw from the class. If it is past the deadline for withdrawals, the withdrawal requires documentation of the reason and the submission of the Dean’s Request form.
Leave of Absence
Matriculated students are eligible for up to two semesters of leave. This form is to be used for Graduate matriculated students only who have completed at least one course in their program. This form is not an authorization for an official withdrawal of courses in progress. You must still drop any in progress courses in CUNYfirst. When you wish to resume your graduate studies, you must file a readmission application with the Admission’s Office. Please complete the form, sign digitally and upload to the School of Education form uploader.
Maintenance of Matriculation
A Graduate Degree student who is not registered for any course(s) but is completing other degree requirements for graduation must complete the registration procedure by registering to maintain matriculation (for maintenance fee). A student must be on file for the semester in which they are planning to graduate. If you have been out of attendance for one semester or more, you must file for readmission to Hunter College. Students may not register for other course work during the semester in which they maintain matriculation. You will be prompted to log in with your Net ID in order to complete the form.
Students wishing to withdraw from their program must contact their School of Education faculty advisor, drop all courses in CUNYfirst and complete the program withdrawal form.
