What are enrollment changes?
Enrollment changes are changes to your schedule or to course options after you register. These include adding a course, adding a waitlisted course, dropping a course, canceling your registration before your first class has started, withdrawing your registration after at least one class has started, asking to be reinstated after canceling or withdrawing, changing your grading option, changing a course’s unit value, and making retroactive changes.
Neither the Berkeley Summer Sessions office nor the course instructor is authorized to "drop" you if you do not attend a class. We expect students to drop courses they do not wish to attend. Please read the section on Refunds to be sure you understand the financial consequences of your adds, drops and cancellation/withdrawal.
Visiting international students seeking information about enrollment changes should visit the Enrollment Changes for International Students page.

Visiting International Students:
If you are a visiting international student seeking any enrollment changes, please visit the Enrollment Changes for International Students page.
Importance of dropping courses you are not attending
Dropping a course or canceling/withdrawing from Berkeley Summer Sessions is NOT an automatic process. If you are not attending a class, you need to submit a "Drop" request through CalCentral. If you did not get added to a class for which you were waitlisted, you will need to submit a "Drop" request.
If you do NOT drop an enrolled course, you will be charged for it. Please read the section on Refunds to be sure you understand the financial consequences of your adds, drops and cancellation/withdrawal.
If you do not drop an enrolled course that you do not attend, you may also receive an "F" grade that will remain on your permanent UC Berkeley transcript.
Students who wish to withdraw or to add a course should use CalCentral.
