When withdrawing from a course, students must consider both the academic and financial aspects of their enrollment. Any student who does not formally withdraw from a course before the drop deadline (see Registration Timeline) will still be responsible for any outstanding payments and academic performance requirements.
When withdrawing from a course after the drop deadline (see Registration Timeline), a formal withdrawal process is still required, as well as meeting other CSUN policies to avoid an academic/grade penalty for the course.
- 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 constitute a request for refund.
For details on Administrative and Student Initiated Withdrawals, see CSUN Academic Policies.
For details on the Summer refund policy and timeline, see Refunds.
