Winter Math Workshops

The City Tech First Year Program, in collaboration with the math department, offers Math Preparatory Workshops during the January intercession (and summer) to help prepare students for their spring math courses.  The workshops cover a range of levels including

  • MAT 1190
  • MAT 1275CO
  • MAT1275
  • MAT 1375
  • MAT 1475
  • MAT 1575

The workshops are free of charge and help reinforce concepts from the previous course while introducing foundational material for the upcoming course.  We ask for your help in encouraging your students to enroll in the workshops (whether they are moving forward to MAT 1375 or repeating MAT 1275/CO).  We found that students who took advantage of the workshops demonstrated better readiness for their math courses. Students may sign up for the workshops here:  Also see the attached flyer.

Last Date for Withdrawal (Tuesday, December 11, 2023)

Hello all,

This is usually the worst post I have to write up every semester.

Just a reminder, the final date to OFFICIALLY WITHDRAW from a course with a grade of W is Monday, December 11, 2023. Not attending the course is not equivalent to withdrawing from a course; it only results in a WU grade, which is equivalent to an F. If you fail the course, it stays on your transcript and adversely affects your GPA. An F grade at the end of the semester will not be erased and will be combined with the grades of your other classes. With a W, CUNY and City Tech will treat it as if you had never attended the class- no harm no foul.

However, it should be noted that a WU on a transcript looks even worse than an F in some cases – as it shows that you could have done something to fix your situation, but it appears to someone (perhaps a job recruiter of some sort) that you were irresponsible enough to not do something about it when the option was available to you.

Note: NYCCT will NOT be doing Credit / No Credit this semester. If you haven’t been attending class, you need to withdraw as soon as possible.

Just be sure to check with the Financial Aid Office in NG013 to see how you withdrawing will affect your financial aid.

You can either do this at the Office of the Registrar in NG015, or withdraw on CUNYFirst. Here are the directions.

If you believe yourself to be failing this course, please email me at
