Drop for Non Payment Policy

All Summer Sessions fees must be paid in full within seven days from when you enroll in classes, or you will be dropped from your classes.

The Drop for Non Payment process runs only up to 1 week prior to the beginning of each session. Adding or enrolling in a class just before the class begins or during the first week of the session means you are solely responsible for dropping it if you do not plan to attend and accept financial responsibility for charge(s) you fail to remove by taking actions within appropriate deadlines.

Registration Fee

Registration Fee is not refundable once your first session begins.

International Service Fee

International Service Fee is assessed to all international visitors coming to UC Berkeley with a "non-immigrant status." Permanent Resident Card (Green Card) and U.S. passport holders are exempt from this fee. For more information, please refer to the Visa Information section. International Service Fee becomes non-refundable once the visa document (I-20) has been issued or after the first enrolled session has started.

Cancellation Fee

Cancellation means dropping all your classes in all sessions by the cancellation deadline of your first session. $100 cancellation fee is non-refundable except in specific circumstances. Once you enroll in at least one class in the summer term, you will be subject to this fee.

Document Management Fee

The one-time, non-refundable Document Management Fee is assessed for all new visiting Summer Sessions students. Visiting students who have enrolled in previous summers will not be assessed the Document Management Fee. The Document Management Fee will provide unlimited official transcripts sent first class mail or provided over the counter in person at CalCentral.

Course Materials and Services Fees

Some departments charge Course Materials and Services Fee for specific classes, such as those with science or computer labs, photography labs, art supplies, or similar costs. Courses with this fee should be noted in the Class Schedule, although the amounts may not be known at the time of publication.
