Drop and Withdrawal FAQs

Each course has two associated deadlines: a drop deadline and a withdrawal deadline. When considering dropping or withdrawing, first confirm the deadlines associated with your course(s) to determine which of the following policies apply to you for:

  • Dropping a Credit Course
  • Withdrawing from a Credit Course
  • University Withdrawal

What should be considered before dropping a credit course?

  • Non-attendance (not participating in a course) does not automatically drop you from the course and it does not relieve you of the academic consequences or the cost of tuition and fees.
  • Changes made to your class schedule may impact your financial obligation to the University and your eligibility for financial aid. Contact the Office of Financial Aid to discuss the impact to your financial aid.
  • If you are dropping your last or only course of the fall or spring term, review the University Withdrawal considerations below.
  • Add, drop and withdraw are available on your Full My Weekly Schedule, Registered Courses, via RAMweb.

Refund Eligibility

There is no refund of charges associated with the course in the case of a withdrawal for an on-campus course. For charges associated with withdrawing from a Continuing Education online course, please go to CSU Online.

What should be considered before a University Withdrawal?

If you wish to withdraw from all courses in fall or spring term, you must complete a University Withdrawal Application in RAMweb.

Consider the following before withdrawing from your course(s):

  • By completing a University Withdrawal, you will be removed from your degree program. It is important that you speak with your department advisor about the impact a University Withdrawal to your degree and academic requirements.
  • Withdrawing from the University does not eliminate your financial obligations to CSU. You are responsible for any charges owed to the University at the time you withdraw. Withdrawing from the University will impact your financial aid.
  • Add, drop and withdraw dates are available on your My Weekly Schedule under Registered Courses, via RAMweb.

The University Withdrawal deadline is the Friday of the last day of classes (before Final Exams week).
