Dropping All Courses (Canceling and Withdrawing)

 

How do I drop all my courses?

If you want to drop all your courses, how you do that depends on whether or not any of your courses have started yet.

If you are dropping all courses in all sessions before your earliest session begins and initiate the cancellation function, this is called “Cancellation”. You may use CalCentral to cancel. See the "Cancellation" section below for more details.

If you are dropping all courses in all sessions after your earliest session begins and initiate the withdrawal function, this is called “Withdrawal”. See the "Withdrawal" section below for more details.

If you wish to drop some but not all of your courses, please see the section on “Dropping Courses”.
