To withdraw from a course after the appropriate date listed in the Registration Timeline page in this category, 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 does not 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.
See CSUN Admissions & Records Enrollment Requirements for more information on Administrative and Student Initiated, including medical withdrawals.
See Refunds for the refund policy and timeline.
