Important Notice: Students are responsible for all of their enrollment decisions.
Cancellation and Withdrawal
What is Cancellation: Cancellation means dropping all enrolled and/or waitlisted classes in all sessions before the cancellation deadline of your first session. You will be charged the Cancellation Fee.
For Summer 2021, cancellation fees are waived.
What is Withdrawal: Withdrawal means dropping all enrolled and/or waitlisted classes in all sessions after the cancellation deadline of your first session. Tuition may be refunded if classes are dropped before the refund deadline, but all other fees become non-refundable. Please see our Fees page for the list of fees.
For Summer 2021, tuition will be refunded if classes are dropped before the refund deadline, as will the campus and registration fees.
If you wish to drop some but not all your classes, log in to CalCentral and select Drop function in the Class Enrollment card under My Academics.
Submit a Withdrawal Request through CalCentral to drop all classes in one session. Please note if you are enrolled in multiple sessions, you must submit one Withdrawal Request per session in order to drop all classes in each session.
If a student can no longer attend Summer Sessions and are only enrolled in waitlisted courses, a "Add a Withdrawal Request" needs to be submitted. If you made a mistake or changed your mind and need to re-enroll in classes, please contact Summer Sessions.
