Administrative Drop (Dropped By Instructor)

Instructors may give up a student’s place in class if the student does not attend (or does not participate in on-line courses) without communicating with the instructor during the first week of courses (per Enrollment and Registration policy).

To request an administrative drop, email records@csumb.edu from your csumb email account with the Course Listing, Class number, Student Name(s), Student’s ID(s), and a statement such as “Please drop the following student(s) from this class for non-attendance.” Please include your name on the email as not all email messages clearly identify the sender.

  • Example: Please drop the following student from Math 100 CRN 21258: Jimmy Otter (0000xxxxx), (8xxxxxxxx)

NOTE: Administrative drop requests received after the add/drop deadline will not be processed.

Adding after the ADD/DROP deadline

Students requesting to add classes will be required to have their Add/Drop form approved by the instructor and the department chair (or designee) of the program offering the course. Form must be submitted to the Registrar’s office for processing before the enrollment census date.

Adding after the Enrollment Census date

Students requesting to add classes will be required to submit a Late Add Request form, approved by the instructor and the department chair (or designee) of the program offering the course. This form will be reviewed by the Dean of Undergraduate & Graduate Studies, and Provost as needed. Students will be notified via email if their Late Add Request is approved.
