Per SUNY policy, when you register, you assume responsibility for paying all tuition and fees associated with your enrollment/registration. You must pay even if you did not attend a single class unless you have dropped or resigned your courses according to the published deadlines. This applies to those who are withdrawing from the university OR those who have fallen below full-time status.
If you have received Title IV financial aid (Pell, Perkins, SEOG, Direct Loans) for the semester you resign, you should examine the Policy Statement for the Adjustment of Financial Aid Due to Discontinuance of Study.
