HOW TO TRANSFER TO A MAth Center COURSE After the Drop Deadline

After the regular classes drop deadline, if you wish to transfer to the Math center courses and add codes are still available, follow these instructions:

If you want to transfer to the Math Center, don’t drop your current class. Once you obtain the add code and transfer petition for the new course, have it signed by the professor, then take it to the Records office in A-109 where they will withdraw you from your previous course and add the self-paced course at the same time. The Records office will transfer your course fee so that you don’t have to pay twice for the course. If the transfer is completed after the drop deadline, you will receive a W, but it is a “soft" W (part of a transfer), and it will not affect your academic record.

If you aren’t going to be able to complete the transfer by the deadline, make sure you withdrawal from your current course yourself, or you will receive a letter grade for that course.

To obtain an add code, follow the procedures in Registration.

In summary,

  • To obtain an add code for the Math Center Courses, email Professor Young at

The Math Center Website has complete contact info and hours of operations.

Transferring to a Math Center course gives you a second chance with extended time; however, there are some limitations of which you need to be aware. First, you must maintain a minimum weekly attendance (4 hours for Math 38; 5 hours for Math 46 and 96). Second, you need to complete three checkpoints (as noted in the Learning Flow Overview) this semester in order to continue in the course. That is, you will be withdrawn from the course with a grade of W if you do not keep your attendance up to date and complete the required three checkpoints by their respective deadlines.

Transferring to a new course may mean that you need to purchase the required materials for the new course. You will need to purchase a Math Center Binder Packet, only available at the City College Bookstore. If you haven't purchased a MyMathLab access code, you'll need to purchase that to take a class in the Math Center. You can not do any of the coursework without the MyMathLab access code.

Bottom line: don't even think about transferring if you are not prepared to purchase the required materials.

If you have any questions, check the Math Center Website first.
