Withdrawal from Programme during the Academic Year

Withdrawal from a Year of a Programme during the Academic Year

Students registered at the beginning of the academic year are required to attend classes, submit assessed work and sit examinations at the first opportunity. If a student wishes to withdraw from a year of a programme during the academic year, the procedure to be followed depends on whether the student withdraws before or after 31st January.

Withdrawal up to 31st January

Students may withdraw from a year of a programme up to 31st January by completing the Student Withdrawal Form available at: http://www.ucc.ie/en/registration/changes/proceduresforwithdrawingfromdegreeprogramme/ or from the Admissions Office. Students will be notified via e-mail in July/August regarding registration procedures for the following academic year. Registration in the following academic year will be treated as if it were their first registration for that programme year. Students who do not wish to return to the programme must inform the Student Records and Examinations Office. In the case of first-time admissions through the CAO, re-application must be made through the CAO.

Withdrawal after 31st January

(a) Students seeking to withdraw from a programme after 31st January are advised that they must obtain permission from the relevant College. Permission for withdrawal may be granted under the following circumstances:
(i) On health grounds, on consideration of a written medical report;
(ii) On academic or personal grounds, where the relevant Heads of Departments are satisfied that withdrawal is to the advantage of the student.
Students will be notified via e-mail in July/August regarding registration procedures for the following academic year. In the case of students with permission to withdraw, registration and eligibility for honours in the following academic year will be treated as if it were their first registration for that programme year. Students who do not wish to return to the programme must inform the Student Records and Examinations Office.

(b) Students who opt to withdraw from the programme for reasons other than health, academic or personal must do so by informing the Student Records and Examinations Office in writing. Such students will be required to attend the full programme the following year, which, in terms of examinations and eligibility for honours, will be treated as repeat registration for that programme year. Students will be notified via e-mail in July/August regarding registration procedures for the following academic year. Students who do not wish to return to the programme must inform the Student Records and Examinations Office.

Application to withdraw after 31st January should be submitted to the relevant College.

Withdrawal from Programme for First Year Students
A student may withdraw officially by returning their ID card and completing a Student Withdrawal Form, available at: http://www.ucc.ie/en/registration/changes/proceduresforwithdrawingfromdegreeprogramme/ or from the Admissions Office.
