How to Drop a Summer Course

Matriculated SUNY Potsdam students may Web Drop their courses through their BearPAWS account through May 26, 2021.  After this date, web registration will be turned off.

All course drop requests are required to be in writing.  If you are not able to web-drop, you can request that the Graduate and Continuing Education Office drop the course for you.  You may do this in the following ways:

  • Send us an Email – Email gradcon@potsdam.edu.   Please include your name, Potsdam ID number (P#), and the name and CRN of the course you wish to drop.
  • In person – Drop a form off in the box outside of 206 Raymond Hall.  You can complete an Add/Drop form and we will remove the course from your schedule.

Course Cancellation Policy
We have designated a number of courses that WILL NOT be cancelled due to low enrollment (Guaranteed Courses).  Non-Guaranteed Courses with low enrollment will be cancelled on or before two weeks before class is to start.  If your course is cancelled, we will make every attempt to contact you by phone and/or your campus email address. Please be sure to check your e-mail on a regular basis.  If your course is cancelled and you would like to register for another course, please contact the Graduate and Continuing Education Office.
