Classes and Planning

How to withdraw from classes

Students wishing to drop all their classes may do so in OASIS from the open enrollment date until the end of the add/drop period. All classes must be dropped prior to term start to receive a full refund of mandatory fees. After the term starts, tuition and fees will be prorated based on drop date. New students who drop all classes before the add/drop deadline will need to apply for readmission before being permitted to enroll in another academic term.

Students wishing to withdraw from CSUMB after the add/drop period may request to do so for serious and compelling reasons; a grade of "W" will appear on the transcript for all approved course withdrawals after the add/drop period. Failure to follow formal withdrawal procedures may result in the assignment of failing grades in all courses and the need to apply for readmission before being permitted to enroll in another academic term.

Students who are receiving financial aid funds must consult with the CSUMB Financial Aid Office prior to withdrawing from the university regarding any refunds or repayments of grant or loan assistance received for that academic term. If a recipient of financial assistance under federal Title IV financial aid programs withdraws from the institution during a payment period the amount of grant or loan assistance received is subject to refund provisions governed by federal law.

Requests for refunds after the first two weeks of the semester are subject to Title V regulations (copy available at the Cashier's Office.)
