Student Withdrawal

Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology recognizes that for various reasons, students sometimes need to withdrawal from the college. 

A counselor can help a student develop alternative plans to remain enrolled, as well as help the student understand how withdrawing might affect educational plans, financial aid, etc. All students who wish to withdraw from the College must follow these steps:

  • The student must complete the College Withdrawal form available on Thad’s Pad or from the Registrar’s Office (Hartzell 107).
  • The student must visit all College offices with which he/she has outstanding obligations as outlined on the Withdrawal form. The appropriate representative will sign the form, indicating the student has met any obligations.
  • Resident students are required to notify their Residence Hall Advisor (RHA) of their departure. The room key should be given to the RHA. If the student’s RHA is not available, the room key should be given to the Director of Residence Life or the Vice President of Student Services. Withdrawing students must vacate the campus by 4:30pm the day following notification of withdrawal. In some instances, students will be asked to depart immediately or by the evening of notification of withdrawal.
  • After all required signatures are obtained, withdrawal forms must be returned to the Registrar’s Office (Hartzell 102) for the withdrawal process to be completed.

Transfer Information

Transfer Credit Information

Any student who desires to transfer credits to Thaddeus Stevens College must have taken the classes at a college accredited by an agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and must have earned a grade of “C” or higher. Students may transfer only General Education classes. All classes that are not General Education classes must be taken at Thaddeus Stevens College. Transferred classes are re-coded with a “T” (transfer credit) in place of a merit grade. These classes do not factor into a student’s GPA.

Students interested in credit transfer should request an official transcript from the college(s) where courses were taken to be sent to the Registrar’s Office. That office will evaluate all materials and might request additional information in determining course transferability. Students can see classes accepted for transfer through the College’s Colleague Self-Service portal.
