In order to withdraw from a course after the appropriate date listed in the Registration Timeline the formal withdrawal process is required, as well as meeting other CSUN policies, to avoid an academic/grade penalty for the course.
Any student who fails to formally withdraw from a course, will still be liable for any outstanding payments and academic performance requirements until there is a formal written withdrawal.
- The student, not the instructor, is responsible for dropping classes.
- Nonattendance does not constitute a withdrawal.
- Stopping payment on a check for tuition and other fees does not constitute a request for refund.
For more information, see CSUN Admissions & Records Academic Policies.
