Course Withdrawals

The Admission/Registration Calendar has all important dates and deadlines for dropping and withdrawing from courses and any associated refund periods. Note: Days are prorated for Summer Quarter and for classes with non-standard start/end dates.

Student Responsibilities

Students unable to attend the first class day of the quarter must notify the instructor or risk the possibility of being dropped from the class. Classes dropped before the tenth instructional day of the quarter are not recorded on student transcripts.

Students are required to pay for any classes for which they have registered. Students must drop any unwanted classes by the official drop deadline to avoid financial responsibility for those classes, and should not attend a class for which they are not registered.

Classes can be dropped/withdrawn by completing an Add/Drop form and either coming to Enrollment Services (Building 22, The One Stop) or scanning and e-mailing an Add/Drop form to

Financial Aid Students must provide proof of attendance prior to withdrawing from any classes.

It can be approved only when the circumstance for the request is due to illness, death of an immediate family member, military service, hardship, or when there is documented evidence of institutional error (refer to the form for detailed exception categories).
