Dropping All Courses (Canceling and Withdrawing)

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. All tuition and other fees will be refunded. The $25 Application Fee for non-UC visiting students is strictly non-refundable even if a student cancels or withdraws from Summer Sessions.

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. The $25 Application Fee for non-UC visiting students is strictly non-refundable even if a student cancels or withdraws from Summer Sessions. Please see our Fees page for the list of 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.

How to Cancel or Withdraw

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 you are only enrolled in waitlisted courses, you will still be required to submit a Withdrawal Request through CalCentral. If you made a mistake or changed your mind and need to re-enroll in classes, please contact Summer Sessions immediately.
