A withdrawal after the financial aid certification date or program adjustment period
is assigned the grade of “WD” (Dropped) or “WN” (Never Participated), or “W” (Withdrew) or “WU” (Withdrew
Unofficially). Currently WD, W, WN are not academically punitive grade i.e., these grades do not
impact student GPA. For Title IV purpose University uses our Grading policy (this document) for compliance
with R2T4 regulations. Effective Fall 2021, WU grade will not have punitive impact on student’s GPA. WU grade will continue to be used to denote Unofficial Withdrawal. This Policy shall
supersede and override all undergraduate and graduate program-level grading change
policies currently in effect at CUNY colleges and schools.
The “Are You Ready?” online readiness course is designed to prepare you for taking
an online course. Whether your courses are hybrid, synchronous or asynchronous, this
course will cover a variety of topics to help you navigate in an online environment.
The “Are You Ready?" course can be found in your Blackboard account under “My Organizations”.
You will receive a certificate once it is completed.

Fall 2022 classes start September 9, 2022. Students are required to upload proof of vaccination status into CUNYfirst.
Students taking in-person or hybrid courses must be fully vaccinated when classes begin, meaning unvaccinated students will be withdrawn before classes begin if they do not meet the below guidelines and deadlines:
KCC students whose fully-vaccinated status has been submitted, verified and approved are now eligible to receive a CUNY Access Pass that allows you quick entry into CUNY facilities. This access pass was previously provided by Everbridge but, going forward, will be provided by Cleared4.
Find the email from firstname.lastname@example.org entitled Cleared for CUNY Access that was sent to your primary email account
Click on the personal link in the email to begin registration with Cleared4
Once in Cleared4, read and accept the disclaimer
Provide the personal information requested
Click on the “Show Access Pass” button to attain your Cleared4 CUNY Access Pass
Once you have registered for your Cleared4 pass (also referred to as the CUNY Access Pass, Cleared for CUNY Access Pass or GreenPass), you can delete your Everbridge VaxPass, as it will no longer be accepted as proof of vaccination at CUNY entry points after you register.
For quick entry to KCC and CUNY facilities, show your Cleared4 CUNY Access Pass in one of the following four ways:
Screenshot on your device
Personal link on your device
QR Code on your device, or a
Printout of your screenshoot
You must register with Cleared4 to obtain your new CUNY Access Pass. You won't need to upload any information. Your vaccine verification has already been done.
See CUNY Access - Cleared4 Guide for Vaccinated CUNY Students, Faculty and Staff in CUNY IT Help for information on setting up and using Cleared4 instead of Everbridge VaxPass. Cleared4 FAQs are available in CUNY IT Help as well.
